5. The Insolents
Roger York: Crime on the High Seas - Murder.
Original air date: 17 October 1965
When is a murder not a murder? This is what Jim Rhodes must unravel when all of the surface evidence point towards a suspect. Rhodes and Erskine do ride in a (Los Angeles?) sheriff's helicopter.
Beyond this, this episode focuses on Jim Rhodes. The case forces him to confront issues he dealt with in the past. He also has some moments with Barbara Erskine as well.
This marks the first appearance of Douglas Henderson as recurring character Special Agent in Charge Bryan Durant, a role taken over by Dean Harens after the first season.
Quinn Martin had an eye for reliable actors, and he liked to reuse many of them in different roles within a series. However, when an actor was unavailable for a return appearance in a recurring role, this part would be recast. Maybe due to its nine-year run, this became something of a common practice with The FBI. Another show doing its best to confuse viewers this way is Law & Order.
