If a picture paints 1000 deaths..
31 December 2013 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

John Kneubuhl's 'The Night Of The Surreal McCoy' is unique in two respects; firstly, there is no female lead, and secondly, it presents possibly the most outrageous concept ever seen in the series. The Herzburg Crown Jewels are stolen from a Denver gallery, a guard murdered, and yet there is no sign of a break-in. Jim and Arte are baffled. Noticing that a painting in the gallery is fake, they follow the owner - 'Axel Morgan' ( John Doucette ) - to his ranch. His safe contains the stolen jewels. Jim is attacked by three men who have apparently appeared out of nowhere. Arte escapes, but Jim gets captured and taken to Morgan's boss - Dr.Loveless!

The evil cherub has found a way - using sound waves - to transmit people into old paintings, and by donating these to galleries can pull off amazing robberies. Jim must battle a gang of gunfighters inside a painting of a deserted western town, while Arte tries to pass himself off as the legendary 'Lightning McCoy' ( John Alonzo ). It is the outrageousness of the central premise - almost Pythonesque - that makes this so much fun to watch. I bet no-one would have the nerve to do anything like it today.
