Call It Just a Whim
11 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is pretty much an average episode. At the beginning of the show, Jim West deliberately subs for a French man going with a group of condemned men to Devils Island. Artie then comes to the island in disguise to try and save Jim who has been put into a large pit as punishment by the ruthless Island Commondant.

While this one is OK, it is pretty much straight forward fair & sticks pretty much to the formula used for each show. There is a big guy who is the right hand to the ruthless Island commander. He is always expected t take on the odds & has a couple of spars with West as well. The good thing is the bad guys are punished at the end of the episode.

A satisfying episode which uses several sets which show up in multiple episodes as the back lot only has so many places too shoot.
