Before the prison riot the cons are using mirrors to look outside of their cells. When one of them looks at the clock through the mirror, the image is not reversed as it should be. See more »
A ridiculous poorly made mini-movie about Revelations and Science. It's poor science fiction, if that what intended. Direct portrayal of contention between Religion vs. Science is in poor taste for a national network even if done vaguely or for fiction. But there is nothing vague about Religion vs. Science in this mini.
My first instinct was that NBC has gone evangelical. But then reason took over. No NBC is pandering to the religious and religious right for ratings. Shame on NBC anyway for a bad plot and schlock! The only thing NBC has going for it are all the L&O's. NBC's High Definition is the best but is wasted on Leno.
