Storyline

FBI-agent Abel Russell, investigating the alleged possibility of American support to foreign terrorists, disappeared as he followed a trail leading to the tourist resort of Pontiac. Pontiac, a recreated gold mining town from 19th century America, is run by former US congressman Ian McClintock, who, through retired from political life, remains an influential figure in US politics. American intelligence now believe that McClintock may be using Pontiac as a cover for selling weapons to foreign terrorists. However, his influence and political connections makes it impossible for both the police and the FBI to investigate this notion further. Jim Phelps and his team of agents get the mission to go undercover in Pontiac; to discover if McClintock really is dealing arms to terrorists, if he is responsible for the disappearance of Abel Russell, and, if he is guilty, bring him to justice.

Gimmicky, but still pretty good
27 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After I watched this episode, I realized exactly how absurd the setup is. An ex-politician has created an old west town for tourists.

That setup allows the IMF team to make a western episode. A great excuse to break out costumes! The actual plot involves the villain tunneling to acquire nuclear fuel rods. Not terribly exciting. The fun part of it comes with Grant making playing cards that can change their face. This was a very fun prospect, which was destroyed by the way it was handled in the script. If the cards changed on the villain, he shouldn't know it was happening. And having an audience for the card game really hurt the use of the technology.

Still, it felt like a pretty fun episode.
