Episode Summary

EDIT
The Night of the Camera
AIRED:

Agent West raids a local warehouse in an attempt to apprehend a suspected opium gang member. As he struggles with the suspect, a new secret agent named Bosley Cranston rushes in and attempts to help. Unfortunately, he only makes matters worse, accidentally toppling a piano crate on the suspect and killing him. Cranston, however, is not the meek incompetent he appears and later surprises his colleagues with his karate skills and his popularity with beautiful women.

  • Agent Cranston, who has a photographic memory, is assigned to help West and Pike (with Arte still in Washington -- but actually recovering from a heart attack) -- but is extremely inept in the field -- until pushed.moreless

    With Season 4 now out on DVD (my favourite season), the first episode I watched was this one. It was the Season 4 repeats in the Carol Burnet spot during the summer of '69 or '70 that I particularly enjoyed.



    I really liked Pat Paulsen (known from the Smothers Brothers Show), and he is so inept in such a funny way that this episode gets a reasonable rating from me.



    Jeremy does a good job as a substitution for Ross -- but Arte he's not. Conrad is good, but a little smug in his acting, and it shows.



    The fight scenes are more elaborate by Season 4, and one can see that Conrad is not in all the fight scenes as his stunt double is visible in a couple of fights.



    Also, look for Red West (good friend of Conrad -- and Elvis Presley bodyguard for many years) as a guard for the bad guys.moreless
