    After the galloping start with a hint of humour and originality, this episode loses the right track one third of its running time.



    Much more natural looking than the 'drama diva' from Knotslanding, Donna Mills plays Liza Leitman, a cryptologist in goverment service and olympic amazone. Being the chief designer of secret computer code software, she's kidnapped by a rogue agent (without clear motive), and easely saved by Steve Austin.



    Among others, one of the main inconsistencies is mentioned by the principal guest character : "Why would they kidnap me at a jumping contest, when I can be picked up at home?" Why indeed? Maybe because Miss Mills looks good with a horse...

    Another unsatisfying scene is the one where the bionic man repairs himself after a gunshot. Could be fun, but sadly all is suggested and nothing is shown.



    The talented Donna Mills is rightly the focal point of this episode. If they wanted horses, they should have written a different story.moreless
