So Jim decides to make one of them think it's 1937 when he and the other mobster killed someone and buried him. So they drug him and then make him look as he was in 1937, and take him to the area where the crime so he could lead them to where the body is. But when something that he supposedly has with him at all times is not on him, Jim goes to his place to find it. And he finds it but someone sees him and calls the other mobster. So they have to get him to lead them to the body before the other guy finds them. Written by

So so episode with William Shatner
8 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode, the IMF team use the back lot of a studio to trick a gangster, played by William Shatner, to reveal the location of someone he had killed.

It was actually fairly simplistic plot with convincing Shatner he was back in time and would recreate the crime and therefore recreate the event. Both Shatner and the other character were aged to show present time and then shown without aging to show the past.

The real flaw in this whole scenario is that they have Shatner moving around early US city (a back lot of a studio they used) but as we know back lot is just fronts but they have us believe they are interiors on the back lot too.

Too bad Leonard Nimoy was not in this season but I never felt he was that suited for the role.
