An unusual episode
16 March 2015 | by GUENOT PHILIPPESee all my reviews

I like those TV series where you have one episode which the scheme changes from the other ones. As we often had, for instance, in some Columbo épisodes. Here, the interesting element is that, for once, the thief is not the thief "in chief", but the chief himself. I particularly loved that. Of course, Wagner, hospitalized because of a broken leg, monitored his chief through a tiny radio and an ear flap. Some funny, amusing scenes when the chief turned thief had to talk to the evil ones. Although, you don't have the lead Wagner lying in a bed through the entire episode. For the second part of the tale, he is here.

Speaking of the evil guys here, Stene Inhat is impressive, with his handsome face, so adequate for a villain character, maybe more than for a good guy. Some actors were this way, good looking faces for evil characters, as the likes of Fernando Lamas and many more, and not necessarily great actors, most of the time TV actors. I remembered Steve Inhat in two following épisodes of OUTER LIMITS. He was awesome there two, in a terrific story.
