  • Air Force One goes missing with the President on board. Race and Benton are accused and arrested leaving Jonny, Jessie, and Hadji to prove they were framed. While being chased by agents, the kids track the plane to Utah and save the President from Surd.

    This episode was pretty good (probably because it mostly focused on Jonny, Jessie, and Hadji, the eps that do tend to be the most fun to watch it seems). The way Surd hijacked Air Force One through Questworld was creative and so was the way Jonny, Jessie, and Hadji got rid of the nerve gas on the plane. Oddly enough, the Questworld scenes were shown in regular animation with a strange boarder-type thing around them to make it look slightly different from the "real world." I'm not sure why they did it that way instead of using the CG graphics that were standard when showing Questworld, but it wasn't a huge deal. It was entertaining to watch the three kids give the government agents chasing them the slip and to see how they not only figured out who was behind the kidnapping of the president, but how they figured out where Surd had placed the plane. Surd's reasoning behind why he kidnapped the President in the first place was also well thought out and fit really well with his past (apparently back in the 70s when Surd developed his nerve gas the current President was a congressman and shut him down which started a chain of events that end with him becoming a quadriplegic). And of course Benton and Race were free to go after the kids proved it was Surd and his minions who had taken the President. Overall a very entertaining episode!
