Trivia

This show marks a major change in Wo Fat's character, because during the winter of 1972 the United States Government had significantly thawed the relationship with Communist China. Premier Chou En-Lai, a practical man, had decided that China could not live in isolation from all other countries and could not count on help from neighbors of any significance. So he reached out a welcoming hand to American President Richard Nixon, who accepted it and began to pave the way toward the countries establishing limited trade relations and making the first steps toward diplomatic relations. To Wo Fat, who had done everything he could to undermine the United States, this action was little short of a betrayal of his Maoist principles (even though Chairman Mao Zedong went along with Chou). In this show and the three which follow, Wo Fat increasingly operates as an independent crime boss who is glad to attack "capitalist-roader" Chinese as well as Americans. By the finale in "Woe to Wo Fat," he is completely isolated and running a fantasized "uncharted desert isle" country to sell a killer laser to any takers. See more »
