This is an episode that shows how really fresh and funny "My Favorite Martian" could be. Instead of the usual Mrs. Brown/Detective Brenner almost discover Uncle Martin is a Martian stuff, this is a funny send up of James Bond and "The Man from UNCLE" as well as the spy craze that hit TV in the mid-1960's. Bill Bixby gets to show off his comic chops and slapstick abilities while Ray Walston displays excellent timing. They are given great support from veteran character actor Dan Seymour and actress Susanne Cramer (who I swore was Elke Sommer throughout the entire episode) as well as a terrific script. A MUST-SEE for "MFM" fans.
