Not a great show, but great acting in this episode
20 January 2013 | by tvnuttSee all my reviews

Sorry, but I'm basing my review on this one particular episode. The show is blah at best and Caesar Romero's acting is stiff. The standout in this episode is actor Alan Hale, jr. Trading his trademark blond locks for a brunette look, it makes him look more low-down and slimy which is perfect for his character. He plays Dan(Danforth) Brown, an American who had a promising naval career until a shipwreck off of China sent him to prison. Now, hiding in Macao from his family, drowning his sorrow in booze and gambling. His only friends are his wife and an elderly woman he calls "princess." To make money, Dan agrees to ship smuggled goods, including drugs, for a Chinese syndicate. Problem is, they want to cut their ties with Dan(permanently) but he has a better idea. Meanwhile, Steve(Romero) is hoping to bring Dan back to the US to visit his ailing father but Dan wants nothing to do with it. Plot is corny but Hale gives a great performance as a skid row skipper who has nothing to live for and will do anything for money.
