Tonight, on a very special Mission Impossible....
11 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm rating this episode a little more highly than I should. It's more corny than other episodes have been, but it still feels satisfying.

The team's goal is to ensure that a specific white supremacist isn't made leader of an international coalition of racists. Along the way, they discover that the "secret weapon" their mark talks about is a group of children, raised to be perfect Nazis.

There are some very dark, tense sequences in the first half of this episode. We see Grant get taken prisoner, and placed in a situation that seems like the wrong way for the character to die.

It's rare that the IMF team gets bothered on a more personal level by their target.

There's still a certain "after-school special" feel to the second half of this, with overt messages about the badness of racism. I suppose for an 80s show, this was the appropriate forcefulness, but now, it seems like they're trying too hard to make it obvious.

Still, a pretty fun episode.
