  • Surprisingly bad episode among a season of excellence.

    The episodes in Danger Man season one are usually exemplary, which makes this episode stand out. Normally producer Ralph Smart wrote episodes but this episode was written by someone named Jo Eisinger, and it stinks. In the beginning Drake gives a long voice over praising the IMF (International Monetary Fund) and all the 'good work' they are doing (yeah, that really worked out well). Then the plot that follows is convoluted and hard to keep track of. I suspect they were working with a script for a 1 hour episode and had to trim it to fit the half hour format, so barely anything makes sense. Good performances by Patrick McGoohan and cast as usual, but everything else is weak.
