A Different Kind Of Assignment
4 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode was different from the norm, not as intense but still very interesting. Instead of a military operation with bullets flying here and there, "Snake Doctor" and the team are sent to North Carolina to get an ailing African dictator out of hospital and back to his country. It's a tough assignment because the area is being hit with a hurricane, and the patient is not a good man.

How the team can get him, his bodyguards and then - surprise - a bunch of sick folks left behind - all out of there in a helicopter under severe weather conditions, is the predicament.

The secondary story back at the base involves a couple of silly minor things, not up to snuff and not even worth discussing.

I had no problem, however, with this episode and enjoyed the different kind of challenge that confronted the guys.
