Pretty good.
24 August 2008 | by (Georgetown, KY) – See all my reviews

Has some good moments. This was probably Roger C. Carmel's finest hour other than possibly as Harcourt Fenton Mudd on Star Trek. Phil Ober from The Ghost and Mr. Chicken was a familiar face, Helen Funai from Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum was a familiar body and George Takai was a familiar Sulu. Trite plot (scientist or politician or teacher wants to defect so bad guys kidnap his or, in this case, someone else's daughter and hold her for an exchange, all the while helped by an insider). Well, you can't always have Shakespearean or even O. Henry plots on weekly scheduled TV programs. A lot of I Spy shows would have been poor except they were filmed on location and the sights and sounds of foreign locales livened up a lot of their shows. Look for a clever and suspenseful scene in an elevator when Scotty first makes contact with another 60's TV staple, John Abbott.
