The End Of The Road For T.R. Sloane
15 October 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Investigating the theft of top secret scientific material, Sloane arranges a meeting with an employee of Dr.Karla Meredith. But his attention is momentarily distracted by an intruder. He returns to find her dead, having literally aged years in only a few seconds. Meredith is head of a scientific institute working on a formula to slow down the ageing process. Her backer, KARTEL villain and ex-Nazi Hans Kruger, is using the place as cover for a project to clone a South American leader...

The final episode of 'A Man Called Sloane' was the only one to be directed by its star. Which made it all the more strange why Conrad later dismissed the show. If he really thought it that bad, why did he get involved in its production? Patrick Matthews' script has some interesting ideas, but they don't really come together as well as they should. Sloane's only gadget is a charm bracelet with a built-in knife, a sure sign of creative fatigue. Dennis Cole's 'Mr.Freeze'-like villain is underused ( he has to live in a warm environment else he will revert to his true age ), and the beauty contest finale looks rushed. A sad epitaph to what promised initially to be a lively, entertaining show. 'Sloane' has, to my knowledge, never been rerun either in the U.K. or U.S.A. and seems destined to spend eternity in that cathode ray phantom zone where all cancelled shows dwell.
