The episode I remember best
28 January 2007 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Carlos Varela (Carlos Thompson) and, as usual, a pretty woman (here played by Suzanna Leigh) embark on an elegant Mediterranean cruise to impart a painful lesson to a couple of card sharks (a retired self-appointed Colonel and his sister-accomplice, a middle-age woman by the name of Mamie) who have, in the past, taken advantage of the ship's passengers in the game of bridge.

Step by step, Varela dismounts the tricks the couple use to cheat and finally, with the assistance of his butler Chin (Burt Kwouk) who is waiting the table, he replaces the stack with a prepared set where the cards have been arranged under a combination shown in Eli Culbertson's book (where the cheaters receive all the best cards but, alas, the turns to play are extremely inconvenient for them, so they end up losing big time). Bridge players should enjoy this episode very much.
