Living by the book
24 July 2008 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Even though most of the elements in this episode have already been used, up to the sudden arrival of a legendary character in San Francisco, this episode contains so many very good moments that I really love it. Not to mention its main attraction, to know, the astonishingly seductive Billy Zane. He's a demon, you see, but a nice demon. And guess who immediately falls for him ? You cannot blame Phoebe though, because this Drake really is a good guy who's accepted a tragic Little Mermaid deal to become human. Now, I don't want to nitpick, but we've already had one demon who wanted to be human a few episodes ago. Couldn't the script have avoided the repetition and turned the two plots into one pursued arc ? Just a suggestion.

Other great moments of the episode are the revision of Robin Hood by the script. Apparently, in our age, the classic hero would be a communist trade unionist and a terrorist to boot. Here's food for thought. Still, he does manage to put the sisters back on their path, which is even more ironic when you know how he's come to be here in the first place. Even so, his mere presence, and Zane's histrionics, are hugely entertaining. Oh, and good points for continuity : Kyle is busy off-screen, making up for his rash actions, so Sheridan is back. I am happy that the script didn't forget about her, and didn't leave her in a coma. That thread still hasn't run its course yet, and it might still be interesting.
