Storyline

The IMF must protect a scientist, who had defected from the Eastern Bloc, who is to appear at a conference in the U.S. Two enemy operatives are out to assassinate the scientist. Briggs is more concerned with the younger agent, who is responsible for the deaths of 30 people, many of them women agents. Cinnamon, in her own words, is the "cheese" for the trap, while Briggs and Barney protect the scientist and get the older enemy agent out of the way. Written by Bill Koenig

Decent but not among the best for season 1.
4 February 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

A scientist from the Eastern Bloc has defected and two enemy agents are planning on killing him. However, the two are rivals and instead of working together, each wants to do it themselves and in their own fashion. Colonel Shtemenko (Albert Dekker) just wants to blast the scientist. However, Adrei Fetyakov (Eric Braeden) likes to use finesse--plus he's already killed at least 30 people. Here is where the plan gets a little dicey--they want Cinnamon to vamp Fetyakov and that is a very perilous thing. As for the Colonel, Dan and Barney will take care of him themselves.

I think the best thing about this episode is watching Cinnamon go through so many fashion changes! It's like watching a Barbie fashion show--and it made me chuckle. I also laughed at the scene where she and Fetyakov were at the beach--you could tell the ocean was just a photo as the surf never moved! The same can be said about the rainbow colored scene on the balcony. Still, it's a pretty good episode overall despite these little things. The only thing is that it was set in the USA--so why not just shoot the two agents and be done with it?!
