Tense and Exciting
19 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

Tense and exciting episode featuring Ayres as a undercover Nazi hunter getting a job on a offshore oil rig in order to try and weed out a fugitive member of the German Nzi party who is hiding out as one of the rig's crew members.

What makes this episode so intriguing is the fact that neither Ayres nor the viewer has any idea which one of the crew members it is until the very end. This creates some great tension and mystery as Ayres orchestrates a lot of elaborate tactics to get the culprit to expose himself.

This episode is also good as it gives a very rare and vivid glimpse of just what it is like to work on an oil rig. The excellent camera work and direction make you feel like you are right there. There is also some really good (and dangerous) stunt work and as usual episode writer Silliphant comes up with some very profound and memorable lines of dialogue.

Grade: A
