Other than the identical voice ploy AGAIN, a very good episode.
25 April 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"The Astrologer" is a better than average episode of "Mission: Impossible". While it has one silly gimmick (the SAME one used in the previous episode, by the way), the story itself is solid and keeps your interest.

A Colonel who is looking to advance up the ranks has captured the ex- leader of his country who is in exile. Now he plans on returning him to his nation and be one step closer to becoming the next leader. Of course, the IM Force doesn't want that so they come up with a plot involving an astrologer (Cinnamon). Additionally, Rollin and Barney will sneak aboard the plane with their prisoner and Colonel so they can switch him. At first, this part of the plan looked really lame--but HOW they use a silly looking dummy was pretty clever and rather funny (even if I could see the strings on it).

I mentioned something re-used from a recent previous episode and that is that Rollin somehow ALREADY sounds exactly like someone else--someone the IM Force wants imitated. Silly, of course, but seeing the team's plan not work out perfectly and how they used the dummy really made up for this and overall it's one of the better episodes of season two.
