Amazingly violent.

8/10

Dr. Karen Cherlotov (Mala Powers) defected from behind the Iron Curtain. Now she's approached the IM Force in order to get them to get her husband, Dr. Helmut Cherlotov (Joseph Campanella) out of the country as well. However, when Rollin meets Helmut, he soon realizes that the man does NOT want to defect and his wife lied about this. His desire to stay and work on missile guidance for the enemy is a surprise, as his government no longer trusts him due to his wife's actions. In particular, Commissioner Jankowski (John Colicos) is making Helmut's life miserable. So, instead of getting Helmut to defect, Rollin must first help open the doctor's eyes and make him want to leave.

"The Reluctant Dragon" is a very violent episode with Rollin killing one guy and shooting another. This is very atypical for the series but made sense as you'd think spies would occasionally kill in real life. It's also a dandy episode--thanks mostly to a nice guest appearance by Colicos--a guy was was remarkably good at playing bad! during fight, it's obviously not Rollin
