Hogan meets Gestapo posing as underground agents
18 September 2014 | by kfo9494See all my reviews

Hogan teams up with four underground agents as they discuss helping each other out by means of working together. The problem with this arrangement is that the underground agents are really Gestapo commanded by Captain Heinrich. Heinrich is posing as head of the underground but it really just setting up Hogan to make an arrest and find out who has been involved in sabotage in the area.

Of course Hogan finds out about Heinrich but has already had talks with the fake agent. Hogan is going to have to come up with a way to silence the company. And as usual, Hogan is going to do it with his own flare plus accomplish a task along the way.

This was a interesting story that was well received. Hogan gets a lot of 'kiss-cam' action as one of the agents happens to be a beautiful French girl named Michelle, played by the eye-candy Claudine Longet. The episode almost turns out to be a love story with some explosions thrown in for good measure. But when the credits roll the viewer knows that they have seen a very entertaining episode for a TV comedy sitcom.
