So while going over a few of the episodes I hadn't seen in a while, I stumbled across this one yet again.

Now here we have a prime example, of how the 60's stereotypes wouldn't fly today.
We have a "General FONG", a "Comissioner WAH?", and when the asians speak, they even have the "token 60's asian joke accent".
While this is all pretty amusing, some extremists would object to some of this today, more than likely.

But, all this aside, here we have another solid episode of the Quest clan on another adventure.
We get to check out Dr. Quest and Race, whipping up on some bad guys.(in some really cool black, sinister costumes)
Again we have plenty of shooting, with live rounds, AND with loaded darts meant to put people to sleep.
Bombs underwater, even the use of sleeping gas and gas masks.

Seeing more great Quest technology was good too. (the little video/audio transponders, plus the camera on their helicopter)

How General Fong just happened to come up with a gas mask in the heat of an ambush like that, I will never know. :wtf:
Maybe Fong got it the same place they just happened to have a gas mask ,the perfect size for Bandit at the end. :clap:


This was still a very good episode, these little nitpicks aside.

Chalk up another one for the good guys................
An entertaining 7 from me.
