Very Cool Episode
20 February 2011 | by DrGlitterhouseSee all my reviews

Al is sent behind the Iron Curtain with orders to retrieve or kill Dover, who's been captured by a legendary spy.

Although apparently a backlot-bound production, this episode has a very impressive look. The only episodes more impressive looking from season three are probably the ones that Barry Shear directed and another Bruce Kessler-helmed episode, "Flowers from Alexander." "Blue, Blue Danube" is a relatively straight-forward affair, lacking those other episodes' flashbacks and freeze frames. Most of the episode is set at night and most of the characters' clothes are dark. Munday is very smooth in this one. One of my favorite scenes is of Al entering a room, removing the glasses he's using as part of his cover as a Canadian theatre critic, perching on a window sill, and springing off. Most of the humor comes from the jealous Cultural Minister and his flirtatious diva of a wife. Al isn't perfect in this episode, but he isn't clumsy or careless either.
