This show seemed to drag at times.
26 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The German have shot down a Russian plane and the pilot, Igor Piotkin, has been brought to Hogan by the underground. But this Russian is ill-tempered as he wants to return to Russia even before Hogan can get all the plans worked out.

But with a little skill on the telephone, Hogan gets Klink to believe that the Russian is a deserter from the German army. With hopes of Klink sending him to the Russian front, exactly where he wants to go.

Even though this was a fresh script, the production did not fair well on the screen. It just did not have the flair that most others episode offer and at time seemed to drag. Other than Klink sending out the guards to look for the Russian, there was not much comedy in this show. Not one of the better offerings.
