  • very entertaining

    it's another week and it's another mission, JT and the pentagon discovers a possible biological attack in the US mainland. they track a terrorist cell that might be planning the attack. this sort of story wasn't yet done in E-Ring, it's been done in other shows, and it's nice to see one for this show. the writers did a good one, they didn't make it over the top, it's just right. the pacing was nicely done, the scenes were directed well enough to make it entertaining and not silly. i really enjoyed this episode, it's a really nice storyline, i had a great time.moreless
  • Not well written. I think, CSI poster meant that it was an interesting story. It definitely was NOT well written.

    Although the story and events were intriguing. The episode was very poorly written. There was SO MUCH exposition that I could barely watch. Every little thing was explained. They pulled up a map every 3 minutes which felt very repetitive. The dialogue was corny and at times blatantly put down just to move plot along. Also, the MI-6 dude didn't even sound British. They probably cast a stunt person who tries to impersonate Roger Moore every now and again. Bratt is good in the role and the other principles are doing the best they can. I'll bet they cringe at the dialogue they get every week.moreless
  • A well written episode.

    I thought this episode was really done well. We live in a world where we have to constantly wander if someone who has a hatred for are way of life will do something of this magnitude. We all know this is television, but it something like this was to come about, I would hope the response would be quick and the bad guys apprehended quickly as well. Also, I hope Sunny getting promoted doesnt affect her and JT's relationship.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • The depictions of London, and England more generally, are also very inaccurate:

      There is not, nor has there ever been, a "King's Crossing Station" in London, as referred to twice in the episode, rather it should have been King's Cross Station.

      The English police officer's uniform is also about 20 years out of date, and whistles have not been used by the Metropolitan Police, or indeed any other forces, in a rather long time.

      Further, MI5 agents, not being police, do not carry ID of the sort shown in the episode, if at all.

    • Surveillance video allegedly shows a terrorist and companion entering the United States on foot "just west of Buffalo." However, the U.S.-Canada border anywhere near Buffalo is entirely water.

    • The depiction of the Washington D.C. Metro system is inaccurate in a number of respects. A major factual inaccuracy is that the Chinatown Metro station is not on the Blue Line; however, the Yellow line could have been referenced as both the Chinatown and Pentagon are Yellow line stops.

      The set used for the Pentagon Metro station in no way resembles a D.C. Metro station (and the Pentagon station, which has one track per level, even less than most). Although this and the related errors (signage not used in the D.C. system, different types of garbage receptacles) could be easily excusable as production errors, there were still additional factual inaccuracies, such as the announcement of a train to be arriving from Chinatown (no such announcements are made; a train would not be from Chinatown, which is not the end of a line, or any other starting points but rather identified by the station that is its final destination).

  • NOTES (1)


    • The London terrorist target was verbally identified as "Kings Crossing", the map of London's subway clearly showed "Kings Cross".

      Kings Cross was the site of a real terrorist attack on July 7th 2005 in which 26 people died.

    • The team of counter-terrorist experts is referred to as Red Cell.

      During the 80's, there was a elite of Navy Seals, led by Richard Marcinko, which was responsible for thinking like terrorists and inflitrate military bases and other government installations. This team was known as Red Cell.
