Excellent topic that reminds me another one...
13 February 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

This scheme where spies try to brainwash thru a fake room or prison camp stuff reminds me strongly the MISSION IMPOSSIBLE Tv show line. Remember in this series from the US, you often found this kind of topics too. So I find interesting these paths between series: WILD WILD WEST, as I have already told, AVENGERS, OUTER LIMITS, and also great movie industry topics too, which most of those schemes are inspired from, most of the time.
