Spy Game S01E02 - "With Friends Like These" (Mar 10, 1997)

Posting the 2nd episode of Spy Game which premiered 21 years ago on this date of March 10th. Enjoy!


It is not a good time if your chosen profession is spy. The Cold War has ended, and spies are no longer in high demand. While ex-Secret Agent Lorne Cash is trying to determine what to do next, he is requested by the President to assist the Emergency Counter Hostilities Organization. A young rookie member of ECHO, Maxine 'Max' London, is assigned to be his partner. This late era spy must now become accustomed to the modern era "Spy Game".


A former Russian spy is trying to enter the United States and retire anonymously. Since he captured and tortured Cash and killed his partner, he is understandably anxious not to meet the former agent. The spy kidnaps Shank's mother and blackmails him into ordering Cash's murder.


  • The director of this episode was Lou Antonio. Antonio appeared in the classic episode of Star Trek: The Original Series - "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield" (1969) as "Lokai" where his right side of his face and body was white and the left side was black. He was pursued by Frank Gorshin as Commissioner Bele whose right side of his face/body was black and his left side was white.
