Trivia

Even though it's never mentioned which specific Asian country Drake is in (and trying to go to), when he goes to the docotr Bakalter's surgery, a picture of Mao (Tse Deng) is on the wall of the waiting room, making it clear he's trying to leave communist China to Taaiwan. See more »

What jerks!
21 November 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I might have scored "The Journey Ends Halfway" a bit higher, but the show loses a point for taking Caucasians and having them poorly imitate Asians. Aside from Bert Kwouk and a female character, I didn't notice any other real Asians in the show! There is a fake smuggling ring in a repressive country. What do they do exactly? They smuggle people OUT---or at least that's what they promise. The problem is that they only smuggle people halfway out--and then shoot them and dump the bodies after robbing them. Drake's assignment is to locate this group of cut-throats and then find out who the ringleader is--and then eliminate them.

This is an interesting premise for the show and it's handled in the typical "Danger Man" way--which is quite nice but a bit rushed--being a half hour show only.
