"When the chips are down, send for Alexander The Great!"
5 May 2008 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Glen A. Larson was a humble scriptwriter back in 1968, he went on to create or co-create 'Alias Smith & Jones', 'Knight Rider', 'Magnum P.I.', 'The Fall Guy', and the original ( and best ) 'Battlestar Galactica'.

This was one of his early scripts. Willard Knox, an S.I.A. agent, is arrested by the Petrovian Secret Police on charges of espionage. In his possession is microfilm containing The Miloslav Document, which Noah wants. So he asks Mundy to retrieve it.

A heavily disguised Al infiltrates the maximum security prison where Knox is held, only to discover that the spy no longer has the microfilm. He smuggled it out, and refuses to say how unless Mundy helps him escape.

During the break out, Knox is killed, but passes onto Mundy the whereabouts of the microfilm - it is concealed in a valuable ring belonging to Ambassaddor Marku's wife Trish. Far from being over, the mission is just beginning...

A pleasing episode, with a good supporting cast including Mark Lenard ( best remembered as 'Ambassador Sarek' ( Mr.Spock's Dad ) from 'Star Trek', and Taina Elg, who was handcuffed to Kenneth More in the 1959 version of 'The Thirty-Nine Steps'.

We never find out why the Miloslav Document is so important, but it hardly matters.

Favourite moment - the prison break-out.
