Worst episode ever
4 November 2016 | by esmondjSee all my reviews

Robert Logan is given this one and fails dismally to carry even 48 minutes of a well-established show.

Warner Brothers had accidentally discovered how to start a series with a star and then continue without him via Maverick when Jim Garner walked out (fortunately they still had the wonderful Jack Kelly and then, improbably, Roger Mooore), and raised it to deliberate policy with this series, where you have to sit through hours of Roger Smith just for an occasional glimpse of Ephrem Zimbalist Jr, and then gave Edd Byrnes and even Jacqueline Beer episodes of their own, but this episode shows the limitations of the formula. You do need someone in the lead part who can actually act when required.

Boring plot about AWOL sailor, his sister, Navy buddy, girlfriend, landlady, etc., something mysterious on the island, who knows? I couldn't even watch it all, and I've sat through every prior episode, including a few duds.
