    This is actually a pretty good episode, although it is a bit silly to actually expect a frameup to be even briefly successful based on a thief's amateur drag performance. The episode finds the right balance between action and Parker's work as a photographer, even raising some realstic First Amendment issues. While I often wished that the series had found a way to realistic bring in more super villians, I did like how the series tried to ground itself in a reality as opposed to a campy fantasy.



    The jail break sequence -- is also pretty cool to watch. All in all this is one of the better episodes of the short-lived series.moreless
