Never really utilizes most of Mundy's assets
25 August 2017 | by bensonmum2See all my reviews

Mundy is sent into a foreign, hostile country to assist an operative in an information gathering mission. Their target is a woman who may have knowledge of military secrets that she may have passed on to the foreign government. Mundy's partner injects the woman with a truth serum that leaves her basically comatose. However, before they get the information they need, the other man is killed. Mundy is left literally holding an unresponsive woman and without the knowledge he came to gather.

I think the other reviewer on IMDb hit the nail on the head when he said that When Boy Meets Girl isn't bad, but it's not great either - or something like that. Part of the problem is that this episode follows on the heels of It Takes One to Know One (Episode 2). That episode is so cleverly written and so carefully plotted that the following episode was bound to look bad in comparison. Also, this episode never really utilizes most of Mundy's assets. I'm convinced that almost any SIA agent could have handled the mission better than Mundy. He's a thief, not a spy.

Despite the criticisms, it should be obvious form my rating that I found the episode entertaining. There's plenty here to enjoy. Watching Mundy with the casket at the airport or carrying the lifeless body or sparring with the local authorities are all bits that I found hugely enjoyable. David Hurst's Captain Kovich is a nice foil for Robert Wagner's Mundy. They worked nicely with each other. And the bit with the bear and the cage was a nice touch. I didn't see it coming. It think my above average 6/10 rating is about right.
