A gang of intruders enter the US submarine facility at Holy Loch, Scotland, then enter the home of a single woman Naval officer and kidnap her baby son. The mother is the daughter of CincPac, and the father is the leader of a faction within the Irish Republican Army. At the bidding of CincPac, A.J. sends Harm and Mac to Belfast to provide help; he refers to them as ghostbusters. They find the father, who says that some other group has seized his son.

Truly Awful
4 July 2012 | by p_meddemmenSee all my reviews

From Rabb pronouncing Holy Loch as Holly Loch and the truly appalling sets clearly the researchers and prop managers haven't got a clue. Taxi with a police blue light on the roof!!!! Bus with Carnaby Street on it!!!! Did they company who hired the bus play a joke on the TV company? But guys it is NOT a Routemaster but a Bristol Lodekka. The bus in the background almost at the end looks to have a London Transport logo and is probably an RT.

If this is representative of the accuracy of the portrayal of places and politics outside of the USA then it seriously calls into question the accuracy of other episodes. Yes, of course, it is just a TV show but even as that this episode was very thin. If they cannot even pronounce the name of a USA base correctly there is little hope I guess.
