Despite the silly makeup, a very good episode.
5 December 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

In this film, Drake (Patrick McGoohan) is planning on going on vacation but keeps getting called on assignments. Even when he finally goes to Brazil, he's called into action to try to either recover a small British sub or destroy it so the enemy doesn't get its hands on it. So, he dons a lot of silly dark makeup and pretends to be a local fisherman(!). But he doesn't remain in this disguise very long (probably because it sucked!) and locates the people who found the sub. He agrees to pay them more than enemy agents would pay and they are thrilled. However, when the bad guys soon show up, Drake needs to either fight them (and he'd be killed) or he needs to pretend he's working with them to buy time. Naturally, this leads to a nifty finale.

The idea for this is very good and the episode worked a bit better than average. Like most episodes, it would have worked better as an hour-long show--still, it's well worth seeing.
