This is true Desperate Dan stuff for adults. Patrick McGoohan, as John Drake (no feathers), with his solid frame, good looks and craggy voice, is cast as a sort of Superman: indestructible, (bruise and pain proof) and on God's right hand.
The plots are varied and range from the credible to the not so credible. Plenty of nice girls, mostly well dressed and in high heels. Plenty of cigarettes lighting up and the downing of alcohol. (Cigarette? Drink? The perennial ask when anybody meets anybody.)
Drake introduces himself near the commencement of each episode. Notice the way when he emerges from the glass doors of a large (state?) building how he suavely tosses his bundled raincoat from his right arm to his left, and then when he approaches his waiting coupe, that raincoat is slung carelessly into the passenger seat. All this to the accompaniment of that oh-so-brash theme music. Great entertainment for a fantasy ride on a full stomach.
