Somewhere along the line in Jonathan Hart became a Lt. Cmdr. in the US Navy. So, now, he reports for duty in the station wagon to the Pacific Missile Test Center, which is maybe the first time I've seen someone driving it other than Max. It is, let me mention, a Mercedes station wagon. Of course, one of Jonathan's mentors is murdered, and they find themselves in the thick of the bad guys' scheme to sabotage the top secret Project Pandora. Great dance number in this episode. Really great job from RJ & Stefanie doing the Charleston. Some great guests in this one. Ethan Phillips is in this episode, and it's just a joy to see him. John Consadine shows up for his second stint after "Harts & Flowers," and the fabulous and prolific Dana Elcar appears as, of course, an Admiral. Though he died at age 78, he was such a great actor; taken way too soon. There are some very impressive scenes in this one that include a Navy test facility's mission control, RJ in full military and test pilot regalia, and jets in flight. This had to be real location shooting with actual personnel as extras. Really great stuff. Jennifer's red and white striped dress is REALLY red and white striped! and the blue one is really no better. Interestingly, this is one of the only ones with a title not containing the word "Hart." Very interesting episode, pretty well-done.
