I think maybe I did like Flanagan's earlier appearances better.
1:24 - Desert Crossing
TV Blurb: Archer and Trip take off their shirts and play some games, getting hot and sweaty.
Archer finds his reputation precedes him when charismatic tribal leader Zobral invites him to his camp, but doesn't reveal his motives until after arrival. Teleplay by Andre Bormanis; Story by Rick Berman & Brannon Braga & Andre Bormanis. Directed by David Straiton.
A good character study of Archer and Tucker's friendship. For beefcake fans, there's a shirts vs. skins game similar to lacrosse.
Due to the desert setting, costuming, and Zobral's agenda, it's easy to interpret his situation as similar to the political environment in the Middle East. I hope the story is more complicated than that, and that I'm missing something.
I was pleased to see guest star Clancy Brown, I've been a fan of his work since the early days of his career.
