Stopping A Group Dealing With Villain Smuggling Operations
6 August 2019 | by Desertman84See all my reviews

"Underground" consists of many familiar plot elements and themes from episodes from past seasons such as false illnesses,psychology,disappearance of thieves, deja vu moments, and psychedelic brain washing. In it,the IMF tries to stop a gang that tries to smuggle criminals outside the country.The IMF tries to stop them by having Jim Phelps disguise as a doctor wanted for murder to get close of group that deals with villain smuggling.

It was one of the better episode the show had in its final season. No question about it considering that there are limited of them in the seventh season. It was obviously a good one despite the fact that the themes are far from original and truly recyclable.
