TITLE:  Remington Steele        (1984  US TV)
        Episode:  46 – “Lofty Steele”
Actress:  Stephanie Zimbalist
My Rating:  2 1/2 stars
Description:  Someone is trying to run Laura (Stephanie Zimbalist) out of her loft apartment.  Remington Steele wants to stay and protect her, but she pushes him out.  After he leaves, she removes her earrings and is walking toward her sofa when she is grabbed from behind, a folded white towel held over her nose and mouth.  She’s lifted off the ground, kicking a few times and clawing back at the man’s face, but she passes out after about eight seconds and is lowered forward and thrust onto the sofa face down.  When next we see her, she’s in an insane asylum.

TITLE:  Renegade        (1997  US TV)
         Episode:  103 – “SWM Seeks VCTM”
Actress:  Sandra Ferguson
My Rating:  2 stars
Description:  Blonde has just woken up, all she’s wearing a large t-shirt, and she enters the dining room and sees a red rose in a vase.  She is then quickly chloroformed from behind in a too quick pass out, and we don’t see the cloth removed as her head is pulled out of view and the show cuts to commercial.

TITLE:  Roswell        (2001  US TV)
         Episode:  36 – “How the Other Half Lives”
Actress:  Katherine Heigl
My Rating:  2 stars
Description:  While working late one night, this pretty blonde is kidnapped by a friend who is losing his mind.  The scene starts in a perfect close up from her shoulders up, as the masked perpetrator appears behind her and holds the white cloth perfectly over her nose and mouth.  She puts both arms up to try to pull his hand away.  After four seconds, we cut to a longer shot that shows her from the knees up, and we see her arms go limp and her eyes close and the chloroformer lets her drop to the floor out of picture.  It’s a quick scene, probably too quick, her eyes glaze after only about four seconds, and I’ve never liked the way she let’s her arms drop, it seems too mechanical, not as if she just passed out, but as if she decided, “Well, now that I’m unconscious, I guess I should let my arms drop;” and then she’s just dropped onto the floor, so we never get a good shot of her with cloth coming off.  There is a nice shot of her still asleep in the car as the kidnapper is driving off, and then we see her come to.

TITLE:  Saint, The         (1966  UK TV)
         Episode:  83 – “Locate and Destroy”
Actress:  Francesca Annis
My Rating:  3 1/2 stars
Description:  Bad guy is out to kidnap a nurse.  He watches as she exits and jumps in through the window.  Walking to a cabinet, he finds a bottle marked: “CLOROFORMO.”  He opens it and helps himself to a small white gauze which he begins thoroughly soaking.  Cut to Francesca entering the room carrying a bowl, which she sets down on a table.  Immediately, she’s grabbed from behind, the gauze is rather small, but it’s placed perfectly over her nose, the man holds it in place with his right hand while placing his left hand on her waist.  His hand covers most of her face, as she reaches up with both her hands to try to wrench his arm off, her screams muffled.  Five seconds into the scene, there’s a cut that moves the camera from a medium shot showing most of her body down to her waist to a close up focusing on her face and shoulders.  Her eyes begin fluttering and finally, her arms stop trying to wrench his arm off.  Her head rears back and her arms fall out of frame as the scene fades to black.  The whole scene lasts thirteen seconds.  The only thing that keeps this scene from scoring a perfect four stars is that the cloth isn’t removed at the end of the scene.  When the program resumes, Francesca is still unconscious, slumped against a wall in a sitting position as a man reaches down and does a brusque eye check before leaving her head to droop back down, saying, “You overdid it.  She may be out for hours.”  A little bit later, the bad guy forces her to her feet and begins to walk her about in an effort to revive her, but she’s still pretty much out on her feet.

TITLE:  Saint, The        (1966  UK TV)
          Episode:  84 – “Flight Plan”
Actress:  Fiona Lewis
My Rating:  4 stars
Description:  Evildoers want to kidnap pretty young blonde Fiona Lewis.  Their first attempt was thwarted by the Saint after they managed to knock her out with an injection, but Simon Templer isn’t around to save her this time.  A sultry woman is visiting Fiona, and asks if she isn’t in a hurry, she’d like a cup of tea.  Miss Lewis gets up to go to the kitchen.  The sultry villainess watches Fiona exit, then reaches into her purse and pulls out a white gauze and a small bottle.  She removes the bottle’s stopper, gives the gauze two good soaks, then replaces the stopper in the bottle and puts the bottle back into her purse.  She then rises and scampers quickly but silently to the closed kitchen door, hiding just inside the entry to the room, awaiting her prey.  The door opens and in walks Fiona, holding the cup of tea in her left hand.  The camera angle is a medium shot showing her entire body from her knees up as the cloth is placed over the unsuspecting girl’s face from the side just as she enters the room.  Fiona lurches forward, dropping the tea and then grab’s the attacking girl’s left arm with both her arms to try to pull the gauze away, but the villainess forces the poor girl further into the room, shoving her into a chair.  The cloth is briefly removed as she sits back, only to be reapplied for a few more seconds as Miss Lewis finally passes out, her eyes closing and her arms falling limply.  As the cloth is removed and the villainess moves away, Miss Lewis’s left hand rests limply on the bad girl’s arm, only to fall loosely as the villainess leaves her.  Scene lasts sixteen seconds and is all one shot.

TITLE:  Scare Tactics         (2003  US TV)
         Episode:  2 – “Episode 102, segment Where’s Shannen”
Actress:  Shannen Doherty
My Rating:  1 1/2 stars
Description:  This is one of those hidden-camera shows where people are set up to believe they’ve accidentally unleashed a deadly virus, encountered an alien visitor or Bigfoot, or are chased by an axe-wielding maniac or other scenarios from out of horror movies.  The premise of this segment of the show features host Shannen Doherty interviewing a woman in a hotel room to be her assistant when she is kidnapped by a pair of men posing as room service.  Unfortunately, the show is focused on the woman’s reaction to Shannen being kidnapped rather than the kidnapping itself.  Still, we see one of the men approach Shannen with a white rag in his hand and when she turns toward him, he holds it over her face with his left hand while wrapping his right arm around her back so she can’t escape.  The whole scene is very quick and disjointedly edited, but it does remind me a lot of Shannen’s performance when she was chloroformed in an episode of Charmed.  Shannen is eventually carried out of the room over the man’s shoulder, and her ass looks very nice in blue jeans.

TITLE:  Sentinel, The       (1997  US TV)
          Episode:  34 – “Sleeping Beauty”
Actress:  Tamara Braun
My Rating:  2 stars
Description:  She is sitting in the passenger seat as a man goes to the trunk to get her a jacket.  While hiding behind the open trunk, he soaks a cloth with ether.  He hands the jacket to the girl through the window and suddenly clamps the cloth over her mouth and nose.  The hand of the man and then the girl’s hands, which she raises up in surprise, pretty much hide her face.  After one second, there’s a cut to the man looking around to make sure nobody sees him.  We then cut back to the girl as her hands drop down, her head tilts to one side, and the man begins to remove the cloth a little and we can see her eyes are closed.  The scene then cuts away very fast.

TITLE:  Seven Days       (1999  US TV)
         Episode:  16 – “There’s Something About Olga”
Actress:  Justina Vail
My Rating:  1 1/2 stars
Description:  This is a quick scene, but has a nice set up.  Gorgeous female lead Olga (Justina Vail) is driving when she comes across an accident.  She pulls over and rushes to aid, saying, “I’m a doctor, can I help here.”  But as she approaches a prone and bloodied man, he suddenly sits up, saying, “Yes you can,” as he pushes a white cloth into her face.  Our initial view is from behind her, but then we cut to a front view, but the cloth covers too much of her face.  Scene lasts about four seconds, and we don’t see a full pass out.  When next we see her, she’s slouched back in a chair, drugged up with Pentothal and being forced to answer questions.

My Rating:  2 1/2 stars
Description:  Rita (Mitzi Kapture) is ambushed as she is carrying a bag of groceries to her place.  The man is in front of her and pins her against a wall, lifting her up off the ground.  We see her feet, but her face is pretty obscured.  Still, there is some very good vocal protesting and the guy says, “Don’t fight it, don’t fight, it’s only chloroform, relax.”

TITLE:  Silk Stalkings         (1994  US TV)
         Episode:  75 – “The Mud-Queen Murders”

My Rating:  1 1/2 stars
Description:  After an explosion, Lana (Kristin Kreuk) is able to see through the eyes of a killer.  She witnesses, through his eyes in a sort of greenish, blurry haze (the man must be in desperate need of an ophthalmologist) the kidnapping of her friend, Chloe (Allison Mack).  We get a point of view shot as he approaches the surprised girl in a parking lot and thrusts a white cloth over her nose and mouth.  Twice in the scene, we cut back to Lana.  We do see Chloe pass out, but apparently, Lana isn’t able to hear what the killer hears, because the entire scene is silent.

My Rating:  1 star
Description:  An entire town has its population taken over by small creatures that take control of their hosts when they sleep.  The townspeople come after Sam (Amanda Tapping), we hear them banging on her door and see her preparing an injection that’s supposed to act as an antiobiotic for the implanted creatures.  We cut away to another scene, and right when we cut back, we witness Sam being chloroformed (see, the people need her sleeping so they can implant her with one of the little aliens).  She is seated in a chair, seemingly with her hands bound behind her back, but only by going frame by frame can we see her face before the white cloth is placed over her face from behind.  By going frame by frame, we can see she has her eyes closed and mouth locked, as if bracing for the chloroform-soaked cloth.  The man chloroforming her holds onto the top her head, pulling her head back as the cloth is placed, but the cloth is WAY too big, so we can’t see her face at all.  We see her body struggle a bit in the chair for about five seconds, then there’s a bad cut to some onlooking yokels, and then we cut back to her just as the cloth is being removed as her head slumps forward.  The camera then moves forward for a close up of her slumbering face, the people grab one of the critters and place it by her neck, and we see her dart awake as it takes control of her.

My Rating:  2 stars
Description:  Stripperella is undercover at a high school.  One of the students, a brainiac brunette gets a little too close to uncovering the bad guy’s plans, and so he reaches into his pocket and pulls out a bottle of chloroform and a white handkerchief.  The poor nerdy girl just doesn’t get it, as she rambles on, “Sir, isn’t that chloroform, the chemical agent that when inhaled renders you temporarily unconscious” as the man begins to soak the cloth.  He then holds the cloth forward towards the camera and we get the girl’s point of view shot as everything goes blurry.  Cut to a long shot as we see the man, who is much shorter than the girl, holding the cloth up over her nose and mouth.  She drops the model she was holding and begins blinking a couple of times before she begins to collapse.  There is another cut to a close up as her unconscious face enters the frame from above, upside down, cloth still in place, and we see a hair band fall from her ponytail.  Scene lasts five seconds.

The scene isn’t great, but her performance at being unconscious is amongst the best I’ve ever seen – the way her arms and legs melt and go limp in the man’s arm, the way her head flops around on a limp neck, just gorgeous, and the pièce de résistance, the head bad guy, noticing she lost one of her shoes somewhere in the kidnapping, decides to remove her remaining shoe while his henchman holds her unconscious body in a cradle carry.

Description:  Someone’s out to kill the two people closest to Walker, his best friend Trivette and his woman, Alex (Sheree J. Wilson), setting up a death trap for them.  Alex is driving along when a van pulls up alongside her at a stop.  She looks over briefly and sees some sinister looking men in the van.  While she’s stopped, she’s suddenly chloroformed by a masked man who was hiding in the backseat of her SUV.  As with most scenes from this show, the cloth is removed after only three seconds, but it does reveal a nice shot of the unconscious Alex, her mouth open.  We see a man in the van parked next to her get out, open her door, scoop her in a cradle carry, and transport her into the van.

My Rating:  3 stars
Description:  After helping a nun rediscover her faith, the nun decides to help out our young heroine, whether she wants the help or not.  When Jaye (Caroline Dhavernas), satsified she’s solved all the nun’s problems, turns her back to the woman, there’s a cut to a close up the nun soaking a small, folded towel with a bottle clearly labeled “chloroform.”  The woman then reaches from behind Jaye, holding the towel over her face with her right hand while hugging her around the chest with the left arm.  Jaye struggles for four seconds when there’s a cut to a view from behind just as she’s spun around and back into a nice shot of her face as her eyes start to roll back.  This shot is held for about four seconds, and just as her eyes are closing, the scene cuts to a point of view shot of the wall going blurry, spinning, and going to black.  She wakes up tied to her bed all set for an impromptu exorcism.
