Throwing a lotta mumbo jumbo at the baddie....as well as the audience.
4 March 2017 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Douglas Matthews is a cattle breeder with a huge ranch. But he has a couple sidelines...he loves to gamble AND make money selling arms to anyone with the money! When the show begins, he agrees to sell 50 Stinger missiles to a terrorist group...and the IM Force soon approaches him but demands they sell him all 100 or nothing! Well, Matthews is greedy and is tempted. In the meantime, a rich American investor (Phelps) and his lady friend (Casey) introduce themselves to Matthews and the greedy jerk is already imagining huge wealth to be gained from this rich pair. But then, a whole lotta Aboriginal mumbo-jumbo comes into the show and Matthews comes to eventually believe that the shaman have cast some sort of spell on him.

This episode obviously was inspired by the fact that this series was being filmed in Australia. Some of this Aboriginal stuff (such as how the IM Force fakes this) but some is a bit hokey and silly. A rather weak but mildly enjoyable episode.
