More spy tedium
3 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another tedious, interminable spy episode. Where are the mega-guppies when they are needed? Maybe 20th Century thought they could hark back to Hedison's 1959-1960 series "Five Fingers", and make another dashing spy out of him. Maybe. That's not the Lee Crane I admire, the survivor of Nelson's peculiar moodiness and countless battles with menacing sea monsters.

Crane spends a lot of time treading water in the sewage of Venice, wearing a white jacket with a curiously pink "blood" stain (it looks like alizarin crimson or a good match for Stargazer lilies). He may survive the gunshot, but he should develop a roaring infection after soaking in such waters.

There is unintended humor as Nelson finds himself in the company of what he assumes is a Desperately Lonely Woman who has targeted him for her attentions. He squirms beautifully. Fortunately, she quickly redeems herself as being not quite THAT desperate.

20th Century rolls what must be most of their stock footage of Venice, just to keep reminding us where the story is set in case it slipped our minds or we failed to note Crane marinating in brown water.

I love this series, I really do--just not "Escape from Venice".
