Prisoner Koenig
13 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I to Like the episode, however they could have done more to enhance the episode..what accent did that interrogator have again???As for Keonig he was good he was not afraid to give a beautiful woman a punch in the jaw and the women can take a punch..the head of the amazons was stupid to not intervene or stop the commander from going in the complex unhindered, that was her ultimate downfall..another thing why does all costumes/clothing have to have boots??? The chase/hunt with John Koenig was interesting, but it would have been more if the evil queen actually caught John and gave him a thrashing of her electric whips Alizia even though she knew John was dangerous to her controlling her prisoners it would seem if John did get caught in the hunt.. Alizia would have tortured not kill John she went to to much trouble to kidnap him..., but to teach him a lesson about who is in charge probably do it infront of the other prisoners.,But krill would ask the alien (John)did he tell the truth about their home planet and even in a terrible weaken state he stand firm everybody is dead.Alizia of course would slash him again unconscious, later Krill would have came back awaken John given him water and ask again... John again would tell him yes everyone is dead, convince the Alien was telling the truth Krill would have cut him down or something and the interrogator would come in .realizes it was the right thing to do to let john go back to his people Enter Alizia and again we get the scene from the trans-beamer...Alizia attraction for John was her downfall, that very long kiss he gave her before John escape..her face expression was I like that fight in him look..... I think john from death and let him go,because she felt sorry for what There was a lot of possibilities as Imention..other brothering things When John was locked in with the otherprisoners and soon there is a fight John was winning then for some oddreason John jumped into the pipe..did he think he could jump that highoff the ground to avoid it??he got whacked in the stomach doing thatthe prisoners were about to hang john with something no larger than a blind fold how on earth were they going to hang john from the ceiling with that ?? It barely fitted around John's neck... I found it strange some of the female guards knew that their home planet was deadly..they had to hear John and Alizia conversation they weren't deaf..but when they all converge on John and they were told ... they seem to have the look of Oh my god everybody is dead on their home planet???..but if you saw it when the interrogator was telling the Amazon queen only she and her and now John knew that their home planet was dead...Another puzzling thing..why does John's stunt double does not resemble him in the slightest ?? either he's balding episode:War Games) the stuntman that post to be john after he got shot by the alien laser was balding on the top.. John has great hair of thick hair little trim in the back and a little gel in the front he had some uncontrol poof hair in this episode , anyway when

the stunt double went crashing after the blow of the gun you can clearly see a baling spot on top of the stuntman's head.. In this episode John's stunt double hair is to dark almost black and thinner than John's hair .. John's hair is brown and the stunt double ear stuck out john ears are not sticking out in another episode:.The Guardian of Piri.. John stunt double was very noticeable in the fight scene with Alan on the eagle. I was wondering where is John???lol,But of course I can watch all the episodes over and over again and find something wrong in all Just one more thing What with the undecaying bodies on the deadly planet 2 came down I assume the same day that's all fine and good they wouldn't have decomposed , but what about the others.Alizia just didn't start using the Trans-beamer yesterday, but you have us to believe the rest of the dead boies should have decomposed by now???what happen to all the rest of the trans-beamers prisoners..all that was seen and they couldn't get far if the nerve agent worked so quickly should have been lots of bones everywhere, why didn't the last prisoner who was set free didn't notice all the bodies around the trans beamer would you go out there if you saw them???, but with all the errors /bloopers ...I loved the show and wished it had been successful for a 3rd season....Martin Landau said in a long ago interview he would have came back for the 3rd season..but by this time Barbara Bain and him was having a falling out and probably if there were a 3rd season would not have came back..several years after Barbara and Marty separated and then divorce some say after space 1999.. Mrs, Bain couldn't find a job because of the show ,but soon to be ex Landau got roles..and that was that
