Storyline

US textile firm partners David Curry and Robbie Garcia are missing in Dacca with local driver Uday Zaman after an appointment with Banglasdeshi sweat shop boss Niklas Poulsen, whom the trio betrayed by dealing with a competitor. Despite credibility loss risk, fabulously well-connected and -informed BBC reporter Jeffrey Kahn counsels the team and acts as translator, the tiny police force could only assign single Constable Hoque. Uday was blackmailed for debts by henchmen of a ruthless street gang who shot only him, but not on boss's orders, nor kept by them. The rogue gang intruder who has and abuses the Americans with a fatal result has his own bitterly vindictive tragic motive. Written by KGF Vissers

Pretty good, but not the best

In the fifth episode of the second season of Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, Jack Garrett and his team make their way to Bangladesh after two American entrepreneurs go missing on a business trip. On a clock to find them as soon as possible before their time runs out, Garrett and his team have only limited time in a country full of possible leads to find their clues and do what they can.

This episode was the first episode of Beyond Borders that I've watched in a rather long time. I hadn't really gone through much of the series, and forgot to follow it, but after watching this episode, it wasn't long before I fell back in love with the characters.

First of all, this episode was incredibly well respectful of Bangladeshi culture, and it always thrills me to see how well Beyond Borders treats the cultures of the countries they go to. They work hard, and obviously put in research and it shows well, and reflects well. This episode was absolutely no exception. It was a wonderful bit of a learning experience for me, at least. In Made In… the crew delved into the dark side of clothing factories in Bangladesh, showing just how dangerous they are and they really show the side of things that not many people see, and I thought this was absolutely fantastic of the show to do. However, one thing to note, is that the language and text used at the start of the screen was not able to be read by native Bangladeshi people, and they do have some concerns about that. However they have also noted that some facts shown in the episode are correct, and represent Bangladesh very well, so it's rather 50/50 on this aspect of the show. Personally, I think it did quite well, but of course, the voices of native Bangladeshi people about an episode set in Bangladesh, should be listened to.

The acting of everyone was absolutely superb. Everyone did really well with their roles and it's not hard to imagine the characters we see, especially Garrett, Jarvis and Garza as real life people, someone you might just bump into in the middle of the street. All the actors and actress do wonderful jobs with their work in Beyond Borders, and it was really shown in this episode. In particular, at the end with the unidentified subject, the actors and actress did absolutely amazing in their portrayals of their emotions. The actor who played the unidentified subject himself, Jeremiah Caleb, did such a stunning job, I ended up crying twice. The way he portrayed pain and anger left me speechless, and Caleb, I am sure, will go on to do amazing things in the world of acting, if he hasn't already.

The only problem I had with this episode is that it seemed incredibly rushed. Even with the good acting, I felt very breathless trying to keep up with how quickly the plot moved. Then again, I think this is a problem in most episodes, of both Beyond Borders and the original Criminal Minds. A lot of scripts are written hastily in order to keep up with the demand of the show, so filming can get underway and be done, ready for broadcast as soon as possible. Still, it would have been nice to see this a bit more laid back, rather than feeling like you're trying to run a marathon trying to keep up with the episode.

All in all, this is a solid six stars from me, and I would probably watch it again. I wouldn't put this episode on particularly, but if it was on the television when I was flicking through for something to watch, I'd definitely put this on to play.
