It's time to take back the docks from a hard-nosed gangster. Jim throws everything in the book at him and a few things that aren't; pressure from the cops, pressure from "the family", a little sabotage, the long lost daughter of his partner who talks to her father's ghost who he just happens to have murdered and, what the heck, the ghost ship on which he murdered his partner. Will that be enough to break him? Probably not. But the "family" may not agree. Written by David Foss

IMF Goes After Another Organized Crime
15 July 2019 | by Desertman84See all my reviews

The episode "Shape-Up" involves a ghost story that was implemented by an organized crime caper.In it,we get to see the syndicate do something in a dockyard similar to the Marlon Brando movie,"Into The Waterfront". Gerald O' Loughlin is a guest on it.

No question that this episode once again involves an organized crime as the IMF becomes more of a police organization rather than a government agency.Added to that,we also get to see let down in both the plot and the performances.
