Episode Made Bearable By Guest Villain Richard Lynch
4 September 2012 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

American Nazi leader Frank Lassiter (Richard Lynch) captures Hunter's partner Dee Dee McCall (Stepfanie Kramer). Dee Dee was vulnerable after discovering her mentor Andy (Claude Akins) dead via his suicide.

Lassiter offers to trade McCall for his brother captured and hospitalized by Hunter at the end of the first episode of this two-parter. Hunter's partner Dee Dee McCall often was abducted by baddies and came close to being raped and murdered in the series and this concluding episode to the two-part "The Legion" storyline featured that staple of the show formula yet again.

Hunter agrees to the swap against department regulations. Lassiter's brother botches it when he grabs a cop's gun and draws on Hunter who promptly shoots him dead. Lassiter finds out and baits Hunter to come to an abandoned warehouse where he can save McCall or die trying.

The highly predictable ending was made highly entertaining by the fantastic performance given by the great Richard Lynch as the baddie Lassiter who was somehow able to make a white supremacist seem even less human. Richard Lynch was an electrifying actor and an unforgettable screen personality.

Fred Dryer on the other hand was a spectacularly bad actor and nearly a non-personality on screen. Dryer and the production team behind the series were seemingly determined to move the show beyond the simplistic "Dirty Harry" rip-off formula that made the show popular as a vapid guilty pleasure - it's nadir.

Dryer should never have taken himself and his character as seriously as he did in this episode nor should he have gotten so many lines of dialogue or reaction shots to mess up. He should have stuck to doing the Clint Eastwood impression and the series production team should have attempted more closely to emulate the vigilante action movie formula that Eastwood and Charles Bronson were making millions with.

They should have gotten more guest villain actors like Richard Lynch - an impeccable casting choice who fit the formula perfectly. Better still they should have hired as many supporting cast members from Bronson/Eastwood movies as they could and copied the plot-lines of those films as they appeared to be doing in the first couple of seasons.

Both parts of this two-episode storyline were directed by incompetent hack Corey Allen - a former actor who made a career behind the camera with an utterly obtuse and facile manner of shooting. How he got so much work is beyond me.
