  • Freed after 28 years in jail, old-time sleuth Frank Faraday finds he has a son he never knew about and that the crook who got him jugged back in 1945 is not dead as everyone thought.moreless

    This was the set-up episode for this extremely short-lived series. Returning to the US after more than a quarter of a century in jail somewhere in Latin America, Faraday learns that his devoted secretary was pregnant when he disappeared - she never told him - and that his son is a modern style private eye (all computers and electronic eye equipment) in an L.A. he no longer recognises. He also sets out to get revenge on the businessman who got him locked up, shrewdly disregarding official police suggestions that the man is dead. Although it's astounding how cheerful and healthy Faraday seems after spending so long on starvation rations in a stinking jail, the mystery is quite interesting, and there are some good actors from an earlier era of this genre - Craig Stevens, Ruth Roman, Howard Duff and David Wayne (who's under-used). Not bad, but one wonders how they ever thought they could keep the show going for long.moreless
