April and Mark have infiltrated a Thrush ship sailing in the South Pacific. The ship has been involved in charting routes for submarines to smuggle contraband all over the Pacific Rim. The U.N.C.L.E. agents begin a mutiny on the ship and steal the charts with the smuggling routes. However, the mutiny results in the ship being destroyed. First April, and later Mark, wash up on an isolated island ruled over by Genghis Gomez VIII, who occasionally raids other ships. Gomez is a bit of a despot who, for some reason, proves difficult for the supposedly trained agents to handle. Things get worse when the captain of the Thrush ship also arrives on the island and, later, when Thrush reinforcements arrive. Written by
If I were John O'Dea, the man credited for writing this abomination, I'd be hanging my head in shame. There isn't a single thing that makes sense about this plot. But the actors aren't free of blame, either. The cartoonish acting, bad accents, and idiotic character development in this farce is shameful. This whole episode must rank as one of the single worst hours of television ever put to film. Everyone involved with this episode should feel shame. With examples like this it is no wonder that this series got one lone year before the ax fell. Not every episode of The Girl From UNCLE was bad--though many are--but THIS one takes the cake.
