Good mini-movie!
15 January 2017 | by (LA, CA) – See all my reviews

Very strong episode -- tense clever, well-written, and given a feature-quality "look" by director Richard Donner 4 years before he made SUPERMAN and 13 years before LETHAL WEAPON.

Donner's compositions are spot on. He supplies plenty of "eye candy," shooting his actors on rooftops, in front of picture windows, before bays and bridges, using a minimum of zoom shots (the blight of 70s filmmaking) and a maximum of smoothly choreographed blocking.

And I don't know who the director of photography was on this show but they do some excellent work here.

Finally, it was a particularly clever touch having undercover musician Douglas turn out to be a mediocre horn player.

A less intelligent show would have made him good at it -- which would have been absurd.
