145. Time Bomb

 

Eric Stone, Gilbert Manning, Karen Wandermere, Knox Hiller, Alan Hiller: Destruction of Government Property.

Original air date: 25 October 1970

An episode dealing in sabotage. Inspector Lew Erskine prevents an attempt by young revolutionaries to force social change through violence.

Interesting episode, but a bit quaint. The threat of a bomb in a federal building has been reduced GREATLY because of security measures implemented since the attacks of 11 September 2001. The episode seems a little quaint. However, 1970 remained a time of unrest because of the Vietnam War. This episode is definitely a nail biter, especially at the end.

However, Geoffrey Deuel's performance really stands out. Born in Rochester, NY, Mr. Deuel is the younger brother of the late Pete Duel, who was in the midst of beginning his role as Hannibal Heyes in Alias Smith and Jones. Geoffrey Deuel’s performance shows that he is as capable a performer as his older brother. And both were/are excellent performers!
