  • This two part episode involves 3 nations -- an enemy nation forcing Dr. Rojak to build a missile by holding his wife hostage; another enemy nation trying to kill Rojak, and our IMF trying to get Rojak and his wife out safely, and destroy the missile.

    This is an engaging plot, with Barney involved in high technology as usual, including a drone hovercraft. The foreign nation where the bunker is located has a weird language that is a combination of slightly altered English words, German words and one Italian word; as shown by the many signs prominently panned by the camera throughout the episode, including many on the electric panels. The writers liked to add umlauts (two dots) over most vowels. Thus, at the entry to the bunker are the words "Entrat Verbaten," similar to the German "Eintritt Verboten" (entry forbidden). The control panel has "foreign" words that we can easily understand like Intercöm, Openz and Klöse. On Jim's security pass is a word derived from Italian --"Divizione." Both Jim and the enemy agent manage to get into the bunker, and Cinnamon gets herself captured and sent to the same jail that Anna Rojak is in so that she can impersonate Anna. The episode comes to an end, to be completed next week, as Willy and the real Anna are escaping up the chimney.
