Charlie has given the Angels a three day all expenses paid, paid vacation at an exclusive mountain resort. Sabrina is most excited about the venue as she discovers that an idol, Polish freedom fighter Professor Peter Wycinski, will be at the resort at the same time, there where he will hold a joint press conference with the Assistant Secretary of State before presenting a resolution to the UN on limiting Communist influence in the Eastern Bloc nations. Sabrina is even more excited when she actually is able to meet the Professor, the two who share a secret and private drink together before he meets his son, John Wycinski, who is coming to the resort from his current home in Florida and who he has not seen in four years. Subsequently, she knows that something is not quite right when she spies two shady looking men who seem to be scoping out the Professor themselves, when five minutes later the Professor gives her the cold shoulder, and when she is given the official brush-off by the FBI...

Uneven, waste of talent
18 January 2018 | by samwa-27311See all my reviews

Firstly, it's hard to understand how people can like this, but the expert reviewer, gets it right.

I am very knowledgeable about most 60s and 70s shows, but this one is absolutely ridiculous.

The plot isn't really established until 35 minutes into the show.

The great Theodore Bikel has almost no lines, an absolute waste of talent, and the great Albert Paulsen, is not given a good script at all.

The leads absolutely cannot carry this show and everything is not well laid out.
