Capt. Elizabeth Lochley: Personal log June 16, 2282. My first CO once told me: "Wen someone asks you why you took on a job, the worst answer you can give is 'Because a friend asked me to.'"

See evil telepaths fighting evil (but less evil) telepaths
10 June 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This and the following episode featuring Bester are the worst of the season, as we see more and hear much more of poor old Byron's angst. He's sad,...he has a secret,...he's pained,...he doesn't want to tell his beloved Leta the truth,...he spouts poetry,...etc., etc., etc. Byron is among the whiniest and most annoying characters in the show. The only good is that he's only in one more episode. Also, for the most part, Bester is wasted in these shows as he appears weak and ineffectual for the first time--and the chemistry between him and Byron is such that you almost wonder if their relationship was a lot more intimate than audiences were willing to hear. Actually, playing up this aspect would have greatly improved this show, though at least there are some relatively evil telepaths that break away from Byron and run amok on the ship--providing SOME excitement. All in all, this and the previous episode were rather poor in spots, though the next one sinks even lower into the abyss. It's a shame, as I loved this series and hated to see it just fizzle out this way.
