best and worst of this series.,
This review is from: Jason King: Variations On A Theme/As Easy As ABC [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
this video contains both the worst and the best from playboy "jason king."
sometimes, this series seems to have problems in producing good entertainment.
the first episode selected here is a case in point; the characters don't serve any particular purpose except looking rather bored (as was i watching this), the plot doesn't make any sense and nothing of interest happens. utterly forgettable.
however, the next programme is an entirely different matter; an original storyline about a couple of upperclass crooks who copy each robbery that is committed in each mark caine novel to further their careers in crime. well made, some humour to begin with before things got serious. nigel green turns in an effective performance as one of the crooks and is one of the last acting jobs he did before his untimely death in 1972. such a pity.
my giving this video 4 stars rests entirely upon the second instalment. if only the rest were up to this standard, the series would be a classic as far as i'm concerned.
