ITC’s The Sentimental Agent vanished from his show two-thirds of the way through the series and did not return. They even resorted to using a neck double, previous footage and sound grabs from previous episodes. They put him up on back projection, bobbing up and down. They had to alter the opening and closing titles on every episode on which he did not appear, because his animated disembodied head was on every shot of the closing credits. John Turner replaced Carlos Thompson and John Turner was given a This Week Starring credit. The final episode credits both Carlos Thompson and John Turner as starring. Thompson only appears by use of footage from The Sentimental Agent and Man of the World and one previously unused 2-second shot from Man of the World. In terms of the story, the lead character was having offscreen adventures and the new lead was helping out of the office and then working for the company. This meant that the new lead was sleeping in The Sentimental Agent’s bed and wearing his clothes sometimes. ITC’s/ATV’s Ghost Squad covered the absence of it’s main lead of the first two series by retitling itself as GS5 and then killing him off. The actor who played him, Michael Quinn, turned up in Dallas: The Red File- part 2! As the airport official who detains Ames and Garr on Bobby Ewing’s request. I agree. Especially after that series 2 cliffhanger. It had a looser focus without him and what he was trying to do. But Blake did return for the finales of each of the following seasons. Even if he was a drug-induced and electronic dream in one of them.
