  • A member of the resistance is being held in an escape proof prison, and must be broken out. The I-M force does that by convincing the other side to just hand him over. This happens through clever planning and perfect execution.

    One of the more interesting shows in the series -- the plan is very clever and detailed, with many different actions necessary to bring it all together -- not quite as complex as a Dickens novel but getting there. Frank Burns (Larry Linville) as a young man is no. 2 in charge in the prison and speaks in a normal voice, not the high pitched whinny voice we've become accustomed to. Once again, the other side all speaks English in their prison, eliminating the need for the IMF group to be multi-ligual in countless languages. A nice mix of psychology and strategy wins the day and the IMF team leaves together at the end with the prisoner in hand.
