Goofs

When Richard is walking down the street, before being picked up by Tara (that is supposed to be in Montana), you can see that the speed limit sign is in KM/H. Even though it is filmed in Canada, this is an obvious oversight. See more »

Weight of the World (#2.3)
17 June 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I really like the idea in this subplot. A guy's spit is helping people top lose weight but they end up starving to death. I just thought they all didn't think it through well. One of my first thoughts was "Well, when do they know when it is time to stop losing weight?" It doesn't surprise me that people who consumed his saliva didn't think of it, people are pretty dumb especially when they see the benefit of weight-loss. But I would expect the company paying millions for it to think a little. Nevertheless I like how it ended and the benefits of it that are predicted.

Richard and Lily are still on the run. To be honest I am not so sure why. They can still report themselves in like the rest does. Lily gets a bit annoying. The writers are getting a bit lazy on her. Hope this will change soon, because for the most part I like the characters.

Kyle's condition seems to be very interesting, I really want to know what happens now with him!
