Jim Phelps and his team of agents get the mission to free and clear the name of a retired American IMF-agent falsely imprisoned of murder in Istanbul. Now impending execution in Turkey, the former agent in question appears to have been set up by a crooked policeman named Captain Hamidou, who has built his whole career in the police force with corruption, murder and bribery.

Trivia

The "John Truman" who is credited with the "story" for this episode is actually writer Laurence Heath, who wrote more episodes of the original Mission: Impossible than anyone else. Heath objected to the "recycling" of his original screenplay from January, 1968 as the source material for this episode during the 1988 writer's strike in Hollywood. While he could not legally prevent the re-use of his screenplay, he was able to have his name removed from this episode. See more »

Goofs

Barney says that he is now a widower, and that his late wife was Grant's mother. But if Grant's mother was either of the two women Barney romanced during the original series, Grant would be from seven to ten years younger than he is. See more »

It's nice to see Barney...but...
4 March 2017 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"The Condemned" is a nice episode of "Mission: Impossible" (1988)....but it's also a retread of an episode first aired in 1968. Several of the early episodes of this series reboot featured old scripts...hoping fans wouldn't notice. Well, because of that, this one loses a point or two for lack of originality.

The show begins with Barney Collier (Greg Morris) is prison in Turkey (it's odd that they used a real country name here). It seems he's been set up and will be executed or remain in prison the rest of his life because he's accused of murder. Naturally Barney didn't do it, so the IM Force needs to help him escape, find out who was behind all this an make sure they're punished and figure out why...why set up Barney??

The episode is fine and enjoyable...just nothing new. So, while it's very nice to see old Barney it's just a sad retread.
