  • This is well done, a whodunit that keeps you quessing. The introduction of Banacek and the core characters was cleverly crafted and cast, and since it was a pilot you were not sure you would see any of them again.moreless

    Banacek get a chance to recover a missing armored car full of gold. The amount of recovery gets everyone involved, including his driver for hire. I like the way Banacek investigates and his swashbuckling attitude is great. I seem to remember a young starlet but when I looked at the cast list could not find her.

    There are good guys, bad guys and everyone after the gold and trying to get it and not always for the reward. The whole way the show builds up to how he solves it is wonderful. It was something new for TV at the time and should have carried the series for more than 2 years. We need good TV like this.moreless
