African Assignment
20 May 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Steve Austin(Lee Majors) is assigned to find a downed pilot(played by Gregg Morris) who was flying over a no-flying zone in Africa to take top secret pictures. The pilot survives, and is taken care of by two nuns that Austin must also help after he repairs the plane and gets them all out of Africa before hostile forces kill them, and retrieve the wanted roll of film. Mundane episode where little of interest happens, and makes poor use of the show's premise, and Steve in particular. Not bad really, but the least the series had to offer this early on in its run. Lee Majors does the best he can to carry the episode to conclusion.
