The first episode of the two-episodes mini-series. “The Phantom” stars Ryan Carnes as Chris Moore, a New York law student who moonlights as a daredevil. Unbeknownst to Chris, his real name is actually Kit Walker, and he’s the latest in a long line of Walkers that have worn the mantle of The Phantom, a crime fighter with a penchant for, as it were, “smashing” evil. Years ago, when he was a boy, Kit’s mother was murdered by assassins of the Singh Brotherhood, the long-standing arch nemesis of the Phantoms, who have figured out hat the best way to stop the Phantom’s meddling is just to, well, kill the Phantom before he gets the chance to be trained in the arts of evil smashing. Now a grown man, Kit faces his destiny when the Phantom’s representative Abel Vandermaark (Jean Marchand) shows up at his doorsteps with the cold hard truth – that the people he thought were his parents are in fact not his real parents, and that his destiny lies elsewhere, and it doesn’t exactly include law school. On the bright side, being the Phantom means teaming up with the beautiful Guran (Sandrine Holt), getting his own skull-themed lair on an out-of-place island, and a groovy, bullet-proof, purple-tinted Phantom suit that has been updated for the times. After all, that old Phantom costume certainly doesn’t leave much to the imagination.
