Trivia

In the final pursuit, both cars are shown driving on the left side of the road, even though both Italy and France are right-hand rule countries (and were in the 1960s). The cars themselves, as well as the truck Barney drives, are configured for right-hand rule driving, with the steering wheel on the left (although Phelps' car has a Mercedes-Benz logo on the trunk, its speedometer is calibrated in mph, not kph).

Goofs

Toward the end when Barney is parked waiting in his truck for the Lincoln to drive down the highway, the front license plate on Barney's truck is from California. Later when stopped at the border checkpoint it changes to the correct European license plate. See more »

The premise is weak from the outset
22 April 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Charity" is a weak episode because if you think about it, it makes little sense for the IM Force to be dealing with such a mundane group of criminals. After all, why not just shoot them?! Duh!

Mr. and Mrs. Hager (Fritz Weaver and Hazel Court) pose as wonderful benefactors and fund-raisers for charity. However, they have no intention of giving anything away and are using this as a scam to make themselves rich. In fact, the booty for all their scams is the form of platinum bars that are hidden in their home. The assignment is to discredit these thieves and get the platinum.

The plan is to convince both Mr. AND Mrs. Hager that the other is trying to have them killed. Then after dividing them, the hope is that they will end up chasing each other to the border--and what happens there you'll need to see for yourself.
