For a comedy it was a well written script.
25 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Many times a comedy sitcom has some good laughs but little in the way of a story. In this offering the two things are combined as we get a humorous and intelligent story which makes for an entertaining episode.

It starts off when Newkirk is arrested by the Gestapo during an local underground meeting. He is arrested with a woman that claims to be 'White Star' which is a name of an underground agent plus three others. But we will find as we get into the story that everyone is not whom they claim.

This is a nice story that was interesting by itself and needed little in the way of comedy to improve the script. It is always nice when the writers make the two flow like a river and make an entertaining story.
