Sydney Greenstreet I Presume
1 September 2007 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Veteran character actor John McGiver is terrific in this episode where he plays bad guy Elisha Calamender. He does a terrific Sydney Greenstreet impression with the character.

Once again criminals are tricked into believing West has decided to take a walk on the wild side (good thing he didn't check with Dr. Lovelass on what he thought the chances were that West was faking) and recruit him to be part (the main part actually) of their plan to get a rare mineral that in one form can be a powerful explosive, and in the other, a deadly gas.

West has to swim past sharks and into a water inlet to recover the item, stealing it from another group of crooks who have it stored at the bottom of a saltwater tank. Artie arrives disguised as a cranky old postman, and together they try to get away without getting killed--either by Calamender, the gang they stole the mineral from or the explosive/gas itself.

Altogether a pretty good episode, thanks to McGiver and some of the underwater footage.
