Leslie Charteris: <<This starts with a nice intriguing opening hook, but soon looks like slumping into another of those typical TV stereotypes which with minor changes could fit any series from "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." to "Danger Man."
The final surprise ... struck me as a last minute improvisation to try and lift the plot out of the trough of banality in which most of its length is spent.
An opening and a closing gimmick are not enough to make a show gripping for an hour. I may be old and jaded, but by this time so is the TV public: you cannot permit your writers the same luxury, or the whole show goes down the quicksand. Nothing will save it except calling on them for more and more exceptional efforts.>> (Barer, p.155)
