Trivia

Additional footage was shot in 2015, on-location in Romania. The feature-length version of the pilot was released as a television movie in 2017. See more »

Goofs

Gold bars of the size shown would each weigh 75 kg (ca 150 pounds), so the Saint could not pack 12 of them in bag, and even if the bag could hold 900 kg (ca 1800 pounds), he could not lift it, even less with one hand. See more »

It seems to me the real main problem with those foolishly giving this a bad review is their inability to distinguish reality from fiction. While of course dear Roger Moore was really incomparable as Simon Templar, though more so in the first two seasons than later where he sadly more abandoned the character's really fine ethos for the world's corruption, Rayner's version is far better than his detractors give him credit for and I suspect this is at least part of Moore being involved in it, though not as much as I wish he'd been. Sadly we'll not likely see Rayner again, much as I wish we could. I was too shocked to find who Ogilvy was, not prepared for the aging, a sign of my own inability to deal with reality! I do wish they'd not altered Patricia's marital status from the original, but was glad they vastly improved on and avoided the perverse nature of the relationship in the 1997 version. Ogilvy was good and I really liked and watched all his episodes, but to me Rayner has the edge on him in terms of finesse and flair. Those who didn't watch this all the way through by definition literally don't know what they're talking about so you shouldn't let them decide for you. If only someone had enough sense to give Rayner another shot at this; of course I won't hold my breath for that considering how badly they ruined the last Star Wars, as well as the laughable PC misandry of the latest Dr. Who!
