Don Johnson calls forth his Spirit-Helper
22 July 2010 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

A young Don Johnson, making only his fourth TV appearance, guest stars as Nashebo, an Indian brave who calls forth his 'Spirit-Helper' when his father is murdered and mother kidnapped by a band of outlaws led by Pike (Bo Svenson with an Irish accent). Out of the fog appears Kwai Chang Caine, whom Nashebo takes to be the mystical figure called forth by his prayers, to aid in rescuing his mother and help him become a man. Caine remembers how General Chung (Khigh Dhiegh) had murdered his own parents in China, and how thoughts of vengeance were negated by the positive influence of Master Po (Keye Luke). As they pursue the gang, Caine tries to convince Nashebo that the measure of a man does not require revenge through Pike's death. Although David Carradine believed that Johnson had star quality, it's not really evident at this early stage, and he is difficult to accept in this role. Bo Svenson does provide a reasonably despicable villain, along with Scott Hylands, in a part similar to the one he played earlier in episode 3, "Blood Brother." Khigh Dhiegh has precious little to do, unlike his previous entry, "Alethea," and later 2-part story, "Besieged: Death on Cold Mountain" and "Besieged: Cannon at the Gates."
