According to the flags in the casino and the white board the countries attending the CT Games are Norway, France, Russia, Italy, Germany, USA, Australia, Austria, Great Britain and New Zealand. In addition Latvia and Turkey are introduced as observers. See more »


John G. Connolly who plays the German CT head, Keller, has an injury to his right eye (looks like a couple capillaries popped) in the scenes that take place in the beginning and the end - the black tie parties. The scenes in between show him without the blemish. He obviously had the injury during the day they filmed both scenes which breaks continuity a bit. See more »

Somebody Is Cheating And Somebody Isn't
9 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a pretty solid episode, with the usual two stories: the "action" part which involves the annual "CT (counter-terrorism) games" and the home front with Kim meeting an old- friend, but thankfully - unlike other characters here - no hanky-panky. The guy was extremely rich which seemed to impress our girl, but she sees he's still the same old shallow guy, too.

The "games" were okay; nothing really that great. Basically, it's a competition between Units from around the world. One Unit plays the "terrorists" and the rest have to see who can capture then. It turned out to be more than that when one guy goes overboard simply because, as we find out, he's nuts. The Germans, of course, are made to look like the bad guys, but are they? That's the mystery.

Overall, not the greatest of episodes because neither segment was noteworthy, but it was nothing to complain about, either, since it held my attention.
