When the IMF team is removing $4,000,000 from the safe, all the bills are $1. Four million one-dollar bills would be much much more bulky. See more »

Silly prototypical stealing from the syndicate episode
5 July 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I suppose you could consider this episode the prototype for the many later crime syndicate episodes, but it's not that great due to a ludicrous plot and uninteresting characters. On the plus side, the whole team is involved (uncommon for the first season).

The team is tasked with stealing several million dollars from the head of the syndicate in the U.S., (who is making even his underling bosses nervous by knocking off government officials) and to undermine his power. The boss and his underlings are gathered for a meeting in his mansion, which has a nearly impregnable safe in the wine cellar. Here's the huge plot hole - no guards or security are in sight for a meeting of the top crime bosses with millions of dollars in the cellar. Plus the team uses muffled tools (which you'll see in later episodes) but wouldn't there still be obvious noise from the tools sawing/drilling through concrete and walls?

If you can overlook the plot holes, the fun is watching how the team accomplishes the task. You get to see Dan be a gourmet chef and Rollin act as a deaf waiter. Barney devises a fancy gizmo to help them blow the safe. There's not much else to this episode. The crime bosses are stereotypical and uninteresting. It's just your standard theft caper and setup story.
