Pete Goes to Rio
31 July 2012 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

Hartley is found dead of a gunshot in a locked room. Can it be anything other than suicide. His wife tells Pete it's murder, but can it be.

At first I thought the story would be a version of the old locked-room conundrum. But instead Pete takes off for Rio, on the trail of the guy the wife accuses of being the murderer, while the story takes a backseat to Rio itself.

For a 30-minute TV production, the Rio scenes are very colorful and well mounted. Apparently, the producers didn't scrimp on the budget. One of the series' big strengths-- visual excitement-- is on display with the many carnival grotesques. All in all, the premise looks like little more than an excuse for the entry's real purpose— the visual excitement of Rio at carnival time.
