I have many and varied thoughts right now…

The one and only reason I ever watch the truly embarrassing Tara King episodes; but it’s a damn good reason.

There aren’t any lines in this scene. I know it and you know it. 

Right! And there is no need for lines here…

Patrick is effing hot in this scene! For some reason I could never remember the lines said here.

What lines? ;-)

Just admiring the view…

Mrs Peel is admiring his tummy -  what did Celluloid call it? “…a slight softness around his midsection…” - this little imperfection makes him even more perfect. ;-)

Of course, it should also be remarked that there’s a healthy dose of disheveled Steed nearing the end of this episode, which is worth the price of admission. 

I liked your review very much and do agree with the most parts - but not much action? What? There’s one of the best Judo fights Macnee ever did and then there is the scene where he’s using the pot with boiling hot oil against his opponent in the kitchen. Very mean! And then a very brave Steed is acting as least as good as Spiderman ( i.e. Macnee crawling over the floor of the studio) crawling up the hotel’s front high over London…

I did mention Macnee’s fight nearing the end, but it seems to me that there isn’t much action until the very end. But you’re right - Steed gets a very good action sequence. It’s just rather slow-moving otherwise. I did neglect to mention Cathy’s very clever use of the lightbulbs, however.

The idea using the lightbulbs was clever, so was the trick with the faked escape through the window.
