    This episode looked as if it may have been different, maybe s little more adventurous and a little more action-packed. We had sneaking around and a flashback of "Don" working as a carsalesman. All the pieces were in place for an interesting episode, yet something went wrong.

    Ken was given too much screentime, Pete was non-existent, and the insufferable Jimmy Barrett was brought back yet again. The show creates the mystique and aura of the 1960's, but the originality just ceases to exist. The plots are as predictable as they are overused and the character development is as slow as a glacier (they take 1000 years to freeze, for those that do not know).
