Quotes

Le Front: Well Alex, what do you think of him?
Alex: Well he's as good a suspect as anyone hired so far, sir. He's a nice man.
Le Front: Nice? Alex, you wouldn't be losing your objectivity on me, would you?
Alex: No sir.
Le Front: Good. We've been together a long time. I'd hate to see it. Careful about fraternising with nice Mr. Belford. You might have to shoot him.

The Mercenary
22 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Bill Bixby took a turn directing(His sole contribution) this episode that sees a French mercenary named La Fronte(played by Jed Mills) go the National Register to try and convince Mr. McGee(Jack Colvin) and his editor Mark Roberts(Walter Brooke) to sponsor his attempt to hunt down and kill the Hulk, which they reject since the Hulk is also a man. Undeterred, he then goes to rival tabloid Limelight which agrees to his terms, and La Fronte sets about an elaborate scheme to fake a scientific research project in order to attract the attentions of the elusive Jon Doe... Exciting and well directed outing is an inspired change of pace, and has a fine performance by returning actor Jed Mills.
