Meanwhile, at Carlyle Auction House, Pete is makes the winning bid on a valuable Rubens painting The Phoenix Foundation is planning to donate to a museum, to prevent it from being hidden from the public in some private vault. Just at that very moment, a distraught man rushes in, claiming the painting belongs to his family. The man claims the ERR (Einsatzstab Rosenberg Reichminister, WWII Nazi art looters) stole the painting. There is a villainous-looking man observing and reporting to someone over a mobile phone. Something is going on... *****SPOILER WARNING***** Yep, those damn Neo-Nazis are at it again, planning to overtake five states, which equals 10% of The USA (hence the title), funding their election campaigns with paintings stolen from the Jewish people during WWII.

Did You Know?


When Sam reads to Mac what is written on the sheet of paper the date is written "40.10.11" which is not usual in German language. The correct date would be "DD.MM.(YY)YY" and if there should be a painting by that name it would not be "die Hügeln von Antwerp", it would be correctly "Die Hügel von Antwerp/Antwerpen". Antwerpen is german, Antwerp is flamish/dutch. Maybe the title at that time would use the flamish/dutch name Antwerp. Also in the 1940's the style to write the letters was quite different from the way they are written on the paper. Also the quotation mark before "Die Hügel.." would look like ",," not like "''", since in German they are in a low position at the start of a quote. See more »

Pete Thornton: Hi, Pete.
MacGyver: MacGyver, you look terrific. You should wear a tux more often.
MacGyver: Strictly camouflage. Long as I have to be here, I might as well blend in.

Good Episode; Casting Not Great
6 September 2012 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This episode sheds a light on the evil that is still plotted in this world. It raises awareness on how much is going on beneath the surface of our society.

The storyline I think was well thought of. The casting, however, could have been better. For example, Sam's German has such a thick American accent that he cannot possibly have been a Polish survivor of a concentration camp. He only has to say 'Jawohl, Frau Brandenberg', but instead he says 'Brandenburg' and pronounces the r in an American instead of a German way. Frau Brandenberg herself has a great German accent though.

The whole idea of hiring people to make the streets dangerous in order to get elected could have been more clear. For the rest, it was a good story.The ending was good as well; indeed we have no idea how this ends, as much of this is still going on in secret.
