And So It Ended
2 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

Worthwhile conclusion while maintaining the opening for future episodes which obviously never were to be, the final episode delved into outside time traveling exploration (slightly resembling that Ben Affleck-Uma Thurman movie) and was a decent wrap-up to the saga of Jeff Slade and Holly Turner.

Now Jeff must time travel to rescue Holly and we get a brief glimpse of how being caught in a time loop might appear with the villain of this piece.

Holly's damaged machine part now seems to have what it needs to operate once more, thanks to Jeff's contribution and bravery, and we are left with Jeff's hand holding out the no-longer-broken crystal to a receiving Holly's hand.

This will clearly go down as one of those shows that was ahead of its time.
