  • Surprizingly impressive for a latter period episode.

    I've decided to court controversy here and suggest that Deadly Countdown is in the same league as the likes of Population Zero, Day Of The Robot, The Seven Million Dollar Man, et all. After some long heartbreaking batches of barrell scraping, the original spirit of the show returned with a smartly produced two parter based around sabotage as Steve prepares to take a trip back to the cosmos. The old "highest bidder" twist appears again here, but rather than resorting to cliche, director Cliff Bole earns inifinite kudos by focusing on the sinster undertones of who Steve and co. can and can't trust. More to follow for Part two...moreless
