Danger Man (1960)

The Ups: Patrick McGoohan is an excellent agent and there is no wonder to learn that he was approached to actually play James Bond at one point as he feels very much as a serious no-nonsense agent of the kind that Daniel Craig later would portray. Mostly believable stories that are fast-paced with a running time under thirty minutes which also make some resolutions a little too practical but surprisingly most episodes are gripping and works excellent. Several Bond-actors and actresses appear in guest starring roles together with beautiful British upcoming starlets.

In it's first year this felt like a "Star Trek" series with no ambition and little progress but with a cool premise. Then suddenly it started to become bolder and more interesting. It dared to go deeper into religion, politics and character studies than any of the other Trek series did on the air. Today I would say that this series began a kind of production that we would later see on cable with long-running story arcs, a huge cast list and pushing the envelope on what was allowed on TV. The last 10 episodes of this show (and beginning of the 6th) was like seeing a long-running 10 episode HBO series on syndicated TV to be blunt. I also liked that this was "Star Trek" where the leads were flawed and not perfect so they actually had to have internal fights with themselves and their own demons at times. They even managed to make their villains three-dimensional and sympathetic and I liked them all. What would have helped the show would have been an even healthier budget would have given some scenes better effects, more action and detailed battle sequences as this show had bigger ambition and tried to be more epic than what they really could manage to get through on screen. Some lousy embarrassing comedy and weak B-plots ruined some episodes too but this show produced some magic moments and is the show that has more hits than any of the other newer Trek shows that I have seen so far. This is the one show that deserve a revisit if one only skip over most of the filler episodes in season 1, 2 and major part of the third one.

In Norway this was one of the more experimental comedy shows produced for teenagers that took old serials with cliffhanger endings turning every scene into surrealistic wild moments, pop cultural references, wordgames, slapsticks, insane fever dreams, embarrassing jokes and a lot of genre blending. It could also be frustratingly annoying and repetive. This miniseries show was a huge success though and several sequels appeared during the years.

Den andre (og antagelig beste) av de fire brødrene Dal-seriene rett og slett fordi denne gav meg en drøss med visuelle minner da jeg var en ung gutt. Hvem er det som ikke husker de fargerike steinene som startet tidsmaskinen? De merkelige reisene til ulike tider, og den aller første cliffhangeren i serien der et romskip plutselig dukker opp fra intet. Dette var en serie som ikke gikk tom for galskap og i motsetning til forgjengeren så hang mye av galskapen sammen i historien også slik at det faktisk ble en mer underholdende affære.

Det er selvsagt mye surrealisme, tullball, fjomperi og rør, men faktisk må jeg beundre historien som er mer ambitiøs enn det meste annet som NRK har prøvd seg på, og den har faktisk noen likhetstrekk med britiske "Dr. Who", men uten vitenskapen. Det er også en av de få eventyrlige seriene som statskanalen har forsøkt seg på, og jeg tror at det er like mye en grunn til at spesielt brødrene Dal-serien ikke har blitt glemt av en trofast skare fans, og at disse eventyrlige galningene ble gjenopplivet 12 år senere.
