He went into the water dressed in clothes, comes back out dead and in a bathrobe

For the New Avengers this is a fun, at times almost light hearted episode. Chasing an enemy spy in a swan boat is a long way from the typical white knuckle car chases we expect in spy thrillers The story does well to create a sense of mystery. A shoreline that seems to change regularly. A fisherman who seems surprisingly stupid for no other reasons than he is a Canadian fisherman. Missile parts being lost found lost again, finally discovered to be changed We have a bit of an overload of henchmen. Chief Soviet (We assume) seems to have them growing on trees and able to lose 3 of them in 50 minutes of film time. The Workers comp cases alone would ruin the communist empire.

This episode was one the final four made after French finances began to dry up and Canadian backing was found. As a consequence the series moves to Ontario and the title card before the episode name reads "New Avengers in Canada The series always suffered from comparison with the original, and at times thats a little unfair. This was a show for its time, as was the original Avengers a decade before
