    "Where would you hide if you had million-dollar blood?" Last episode from "The Immortal" TV series has Christopher George's Ben Richards on the run from wealthy, evil Arthur Maitland and his pack of goons, finally locating his long-lost biological brother...or so he thinks! Seems Jason Richards suffered a cracked skull while serving in the military and awoke with amnesia. Unfortunately, the casting of Michael Strong in the role of Jason was a fatal misstep--he doesn't seem the type to be immune to age-progression, and in fact looks gray and frail enough to be convincing as Chris George's father! The show's focus has completely segued from taut storytelling to fisticuffs and stunt-work, while star-hero George is grim and tight-lipped throughout. Small wonder this series only lasted a single season; there's no driving force behind the narrative--just faceless bad guys versus the good guy--and no brains, either. The teleplay is illogical, the direction lax, and the voice-over narration at the climax a cheat. Goodbye "Immortal"!
