Probably one of the best episode of the whole series

Well, some of the episodes of this TV series are boring, predictable, softly directed, without surprises. Boring. But this one may brings you good sequences, especially the truck heist, the rocket special vehicle that carrying it. It reminds me fast paced UK thriller from this period, early sixties. And the characters, the bad guys's ones, are strangely well described; I did not expect this from such piece of work. Maybe we can explain this because of the director: Quentin Lawrence : he was responsible of many good features, I have some of them in my collection. Even if I don't remember the titles.

Yes, the truck heist is amazing, although not as good as the one we find in the french movie LE PACHA. I love this kind of sequences.

Let's watch the remaining episodes...
