Storyline

Erskine and Rhodes are sent to a small town in Oregon with a predominant Asian American population. Evidence has surfaced that one of its residents may have been a traitor during World War II, serving as a Japanese officer without ever renouncing his U.S. citizenship. The one-time officer also was involved in torture during the war. To find the man, the agents eventually must seek the aid of one of the torture victims from the war. Written by Bill Koenig

Decent episode
29 March 2014 | by (Massachusetts, USA) – See all my reviews

FYI, this episode NEVER aired.

Who knows why? Maybe because so many performers were Asian? It was likely filmed in 1965, when Barbara Erskine was a factor in the series. But it never saw the light of day until the DVD release.

But it is a fascinating episode, and it is an episode in which we see non- stereotypical portrayals of Asian-Americans. It is NOT a deal in 2014, but in 1965-66 it was. And that is a very sorry statement. Humanity deserves better.

Anyway, this episode deserves a look, because it never aired, and because it is interesting to boot!
