Best Episode
14 June 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This episode is my favourite because it best demonstrates the potential the show had to offer.

I remember watching the pilot and anxious for the following week when the following episode was on.

John Rhys-Davies was one of the original reasons for me watching the show because I saw him in "James Bond 007" "The Living Daylights" and "Indiana Jones".

I think it is one of the best pilots I have seen for a show.

The pilot gives reasonable insight into the characters of the show before they set off "sliding" into parallel worlds.
