    Man, the Nazis made great villains, didn't they? In another episode where the IMF needs to stop an attempt to carry on Hitler's legacy, they stage a dream to get rid of an up-and-coming neo-Nazi leader. This one spends most of the show laying the groundwork for a particularly emotional fourth act and offers a very downbeat ending.



    The key players this time around are Cinammon and Jim, with Rollin on hand to play Hitler in the staged dream. Barbara Bain does a great job, but the best performance of the episode is that of Wilfrid Hyde-White as Kelmann, who meets a mysterious woman who evokes memories of his late wife. When he sees history repeat itself in the final scene, the look of loss on his face is so genuine, you almost feel sorry for him (even though he's another of the bad guys the team is trying to thwart).



    The con this week is a bit far-fetched (how could they know the confrontation at the end would so mirror the scene they portray in the dream?) but it's ultimately effective. Essentially, it's classic "Mission: Impossible," getting the villains to turn on each other and finish each other off.moreless
