YMMV / The Saint

The Books

  • Bizarro Episode:The Man Who Liked Ants which features The Saint stopping world domination by ants. Seriously. A Mad Scientist breeds ants to grow in size and intelligence, believing them to be a 'purer' and more admirable life form cheated out of its glory by the evolution of fallible and in-fighting prone humanity. Templar kills the ant queen and her nest before it can hatch. It's also a weird episode, because it's one of the few times you actually see Templar afraid and briefly has the heebie-jeebies about insects for a little while following it.

The Series

The Film

  • Ending Fatigue: The movie continues a full fifteen minutes after the villains are arrested and the conflict is resolved. One US TV broadcast ended the movie just moments later when Emma and Simon reunite at the country house.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: The film uses the alias of Leslie Charteris' greatest character. And that is all. (That Charteris's name does not appear on the credits says pretty much everything.)
