Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In the fine tradition of the original Mission: Impossible series, the new IMF team poses as a European circus troupe. The purpose: to locate an artifact proving the atrocities committed by military leader Savitch (Grigor Taylor) and to rescue imprisoned freedom fighter Father Vallis (Ivor Kants). Written by Robert Brennan, this episode is a streamlined and updated reworking of the two-part 1966 Mission: Impossible caper "Old Man Out," which was scripted by Ellis Marcus. "Command Performance" was telecast on October 12, 1989.
