If they're going to believably dress Julie Newmar as a man, then a fitted suit that clearly shows her hourglass is probably not the way to go. So, they lost me right then and there. Then the way the bad guy gets away from the scene of the crime seemed so unlikely given the circumstances that they lost me again. I mean, it would be like a vet going tot he zoo, an elephant drops to the ground right in front of them, and instead of going into immediate vet mode and trying to help, they just kind of saunter away to go see the giraffes. Big issue right there. Then there's the sound editing. I struggled to hear at one point, then the sound was overly-loud in the next. The dubbing is god-awful. The whole sound editing is uneven throughout. Not a good job. Jennifer looks off in this one, too. Now, the ruse is written nicely. From the beginning to the end, I like how Julie works thru the scenes with the three regulars. And the way the confusion about who the real Jonathan Hart is was actually pretty clever. One of the bad guys get rough with Jennifer this episode, which is not something we see a lot of. One of the things I really liked was Jonathan going directly into protective mode when Jennifer is summoned as a hostage. Also, when Jonathan says lovers and husband & wife are not mutually exclusive. Oooh, but wait, then Julie puts on another man-disguise and looks positively unconvincing to the point where I'm lost in laughter, again. BLOOPER ALERT --> Bad jump cut when the Rolls pulls up about 47 minutes in. And then to make things worse, the same line is written for Jonathan TWICE. "If we do, it could cause the Commissioner his life." This thing is so uneven. Parts of it were great for me, but others were just really badly done. I mean, i enjoyed it like an 8. But the crappy parts were like a 4. So, I'll split the difference at the 6. Note to Harry Winer, direction here, not so great.
