  • double whammy

    My favourite episode of the very average fourth season. I loved the premise of the perfectly recreated duplicate apartment underneath the real one that the oblivious bad guys would be strategically sent to using the rigged private elevator. I dont think the writer was a regular on the show but assuming this was his sole credit, what an inspired script it was.

    The dazzling peking buddha, the use of a fake safe for barney to listen in on to inform his breaking of the real one, the doctored footage of ''lazlo'' used to manipulate his partner and the immensely satisfying conclusion where the machinations of the IMF team result in a ''double whammy'', this really is mission impossible at its brilliant best.

    Only gripe is you cant watch anne francis play the american agent without feeling - nay, knowing - barbara bain could have played it so much better.
