  • A rare case of a Season 5 home run.

    After setting the bar so high in part one, Cliff Bole focuses the follow up around Steve's efforts to rescue Dave McGrath's kidnapped daughter. Having being severely concussed by the explosion at the end of part one, the good colonel stoically checks himself out of hospital and takes on the the hoodlums pratically single handedly. Martin Caidin appears near the end, suitably saving his one and only screen appearance for a classic, while probably wondering why the show couldn't conjur up humdingers like this all the time. Hard to believe that a only few weeks later or so, pathetic barrell scraping like The Lost Island and The Moving Mountain would show that Deadly Countdown was a case of a show Burning Bright. (In the scientific sense of course...)
