Mission Impossible before its time

So far, this TV show PANIC offers many good surprises. After a episode with the future FINAL DESTINATION scheme, as I commented a few days ago, this is the MISSION IMPOSSIBLE one to be shown. See for yourself. Paul Stewart plays a retired secret agent. Suddenly, one day, a government man comes to see him and asks our lead to participate to a last mission behind the iron curtain, to get some important information, or more exactly, save an American secret agent whose fingerprints may cost him his life, because a file in which those same fingerprints are archived. So Stewart has to switch the genuine fingerprits with phony ones, something like that. So, Stewart recruits some of his former buddies and the crew goes back to "business". With a very accurate technical approach of the mission.

And the following is a nearly copycat of a MISSION IMPOSSIBLE episode; except that the very famous series will be made at least a decade later.

Surprising and precursor at the most.
