  • Worth a second look.

    Always considered a lesser episode of the series, "African Connection" deserves a second look. Wagner appears absolutely gorgeous here and has an enjoyable rapport with notable guest actor Dan O'Herlihy. The episode is standard fare for the series, but has a fun spirit throughout and involves Jaime in political espionage to prevent an African dictator from ensuring his re-election by rigging a computer to inaccurately count votes in his favor. One of the opposition leaders is a former college chum of Jaime's -- which adds a rare personal backstory to the mix. Interestingly enough, Richard Anderson (Oscar Goldman) appears only in voiceover to set up the mission. Wagner's fresh appearance is enhanced by a continual change in fashions throughout -- which is odd when one is on a dangerous mission in Africa without a suitcase!! One gripe: the unnecessary and defensive conversation regarding Jaime's skin color is awkward and out of place.
