(Episode: “Double Danger”)
Synopsis: The Quests go to Thailand so Benton can develop drugs that facilitate long-distance space travel. They’re pursued by Zin, whose new plan involves a Race Bannon lookalike. Dr. Quest’s awesome project, some interesting animals and the presence of an honest-to-god adventuress brilliantly distract from one of my least favorite classic plots.
Tip 42: Globetrotting spy-entists with lookalike enemies posing as bodyguards: they’re just like us!
…In the sense that they take animal photos at every opportunity, anyway.
Imagine what they could do with iPhones. For that matter, why hasn’t Benton just gone ahead and invented them?
Next time: Your guess is as good as mine.
