Prevention Of Another Reich
6 January 2020 | by Desertman84See all my reviews

"The Fuehrer's Children" is the 7th episode of the second season of the revival classic series,"Mission:Impossible".

In this mission,we get to see the IMF team try to stop a neo-Nazi organization who has been trying to restore Nazism or the fourth Reich through kidnapped children that were psychologically manipulated at an early age. Surprisingly,we get to see the use of computers in the manipulation of these children.

The series - original and the revival - has used the the prevention of another restoration of Nazism in their missions in many episodes. While viewers may find that awkward during the time the show was on air more than 30 years ago and especially today while this review is being written considering that the Nazis no longer have the same impact as they used to have when Hitler was alive.

But nevertheless,it was nice to see the IMF deal with Nazism in numerous episodes to show that they want no other Reich would soon exist anytime in the future. Overall,the show has shown its anti-Nazi sentiment in both the original and the revival classic.
