93. The Enemies

Ralph Gordon Stuart: Espionage, Murder.

Original air date: 3 November 1968
Rerun 27 April 1969

The FBI follows a trail of blood in the hunt for a deadly Communist spy who's out to steel a top-secret rocket fuel.

No interesting cars but some great chase sequences. The good inspector and Colby chase a motorcycle thru Los Angeles. Amazing that the inspector knows all the streets and the short cuts through any city that he travels in. Colby has a big fight scene with the bad guy and wins after Colby takes a few tough blows. Another well-done episode!

Al Freeman Jr. plays Stuart’s Vietnam war buddy, a self-employed TV repairman. Mr. Freeman’s role is interesting, in that we really see—for perhaps the first time in the series—an African-American shown in a nonstereotypical role. He and his wife (Cicely Tyson) are in the process of adopting a son, and he drives a humble—but NEW—Ford wagon (natch!). This episode aired the same season as Julia, the Diahann Carroll sitcom. This alone made “The Enemies” a notable episode: Despite the arch-conservative guidelines of the show, we do see some liberal touches at work here.
