This Show Had Several Very Interesting Aspects
8 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Stories involving the dismantling of a bomb with lives in danger are always riveting. I have yet to see one that wasn't, and this episode is no exception. It was neat to see how "Hector" traded places with a guy who couldn't move a muscle or he would set the bomb. (I am not giving anything away because now poor Hector is now on the spot!). Also, there are tense scenes with Col. Ryan escorting a dignitary down a blown-out elevator shaft, and well as other tense moments. All of this takes place at the United Nations.

In a secondary story, Molly and Tiffany are in Vietnam trying to see if they can find a long- lost MIA. A woman they knew back home received an offer that, for $5,000, her son would be located.

In the third story, the immoral Crystal, who looks and talks like a 14-year-old comes over to Mack's house since Tiffany is out of the country and he wants to have nothing to do with her. I guess he got a change of conscience after banging her in the car the previous night in this TV show which turned into the semi soap opera the past month.

The Vietnam story turned out to be very interesting, and another case of a very selfish person. The UN mayhem turned out to be revenge over a long-ago car accident which killed a man's son, so it wasn't anything something political.

Overall, even with the "soap" story inserted with the irritating Cyrstal, is was a very entertaining episode.
