      Of the first three episodes of Masquerade, Girls for Sale is the most fun to watch. I love the guest stars and how some of them are recruited.

      The show begins with a nice beach scene where Lynda Day George’s character of Jackie recruits a young woman (Mary Beth Evans) to be a model. Now I can smell a set up like this a million miles away. There’s no way Jackie is on the level, and it’s no time at all before my assumptions are deemed correct.

      The recruit, Arlene, is being forced to make pornographic movies, although before she really has to do much, Jackie’s boss intervenes. It seems Arlene is the daughter of a powerful politician. That begins the kidnapping plot and that’s why Lavender (Rod Taylor) and his intelligence team grab their own recruits to save the girl and take down the porn handlers.

      Baseball player Steve Garvey appears as himself in this episode. I can’t stand Garvey, and I’ve seen him try to act before. He doesn’t normally ...

      • make a good impression, but in this show, playing himself, he’s not bad. Still, I think of him as an arrogant person, and that’s hard to get over.

        There’s a great spunky lady character who is so funny to watch. She’s supposed to be a horrible driver, and that’s just what they need. With Garvey as a reason for her distraction, she drives right into a hotel front. This sets up several different opportunities for the recruits to do their thing. Again, that’s really what is

        fun to watch — seeing how these people use normal skills to accomplish their missions.

        Peter Breck plays the father of Arlene, with James Shigeta as Jackie’s boss. Those are two TV heavyweights battling each other here.

        There’s some nice comedy here mixed in with the drama. I fully enjoyed watching how things unfold; that’s the excitement. Probably the worst part was the Hawaii setting, which sounds beautiful, but they aren’t really anywhere close to Hawaii when filming this and if you pay close attention, the Los Angeles setting is noticeable.
