First appearance of Race's "old flame" Jade. See more »


Once the impostor replaces Race, there's no reason for keeping Race alive, yet they do. Later on, they decide to kill Race by blowing up an entire temple with a time-bomb. It's a case of going from one extreme to another (going too soft and then going beyond reason); logically it serves little purpose, but the plot needs it. See more »


Roger T. 'Race' Bannon: Hey, what is this?
Korchek: "Hey, what is this?"
Roger T. 'Race' Bannon: And let's cut out the fun and games, Little Sir Echo. What's going on here?
Korchek: "Let's cut out the fun and games, Little Sir Echo. What's going on here?" Release him, Tabak. He's not going anywhere.

The Quests in Thailand
11 December 2008 | by (Tennessee) – See all my reviews

Dr. Quest is in Thailand doing research with some plants that may prove beneficial to future spaceflights. While there, Race takes the opportunity to visit a giant Buddah deep in the jungle for some pictures. But when Race comes back, something's different. It takes Jonny and Hadji a while to figure it out, but there's definitely something odd going on. Race's old flame, Jade, shows up and quickly confirms the boys' suspicions - that's not Race Bannon!

Double Danger is a good, solid episode. The whole idea of a double for Race may be a bit hokey (even I realized how problematic it was as a kid back in the 60s), but it presents an unusual, "fun" situation. I've always found it funny that the highly trained double would blow his cover about five seconds after meeting up with the boys. What an idiot! And calling the monkey "Bandit" is a little to obvious a mistake. Finally, the addition of a woman to the cast like Jade was a very nice, inspired decision. I only wish she could have appeared more often.

A few episodes back, I wrote that it's kind of weird that the series was called Jonny Quest when Jonny so often had little to do in each episode. Double Danger is an exception to this comment. It's Jonny's (and Hadji's) detective work in this episode that saves the day.
