  • The IMF outsmart the bad guys by faking a San Francisco earthquake. Each member of the team plays their part perfectly as the villians walk right into the paddy wagon at the end.

    What do you get when you combine three scientists, their wives, and a communist government looking for the "ultimate weapon?" The answer is Kidnapping with a capital "K." Enemy agent Stavak has kidnapped two of the three scientists who have a formula to create a super weapon. Through a series of carefully planned schemes, Jim (posing as the third scientist) ends up in the cell with the other scientists and their wives. Barney and Willy work their high-tech magic by creating the illusion of an earthquake. Jim helps the enemies dig their way out of the rubble to freedom.

    I love this episode! The action moves rapidly along and the criminals play perfectly into the hands of the IMF team. It reminds me of Wile E. Coyote getting caught in his own trap!
