Goofs

When Dana is "machine gunned", Lorca should have noticed that her wounds are not bleeding as badly as they should.

He had ducked under cover and had no way of knowing how many times she had been hit. Plus, he was more concerned with his own agenda to be bothered with exactly how much she was hurt. He did nothing to try and help her. See more »

One of the best of season 5
24 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

This was probably the best episode of season 5. It had a good script and lots of continuous activity as the tried to follow the killer to identify the target. This season featured a change with a more modern feel but felt this season is when MI lost a lot of its charm.

I never felt Lesley (Ann) Warren really worked out well during her stint as female team member with a tendency to overact compared to the almost stoic performances by the rest of the cast. This was one of her better performances. She seemed to have very minor roles at times.

I did enjoy seeing more modern cars especially the early 70 Plymouths since Chrysler provided the cars compared to the VW's and Mercedes used in many of the foreign locales.
