The Ten-Fold Debt
24 November 2009 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This is a likable episode complete with quirky characters, poignant flash-backs and even a little period music. Not wanting to spoil anything, the only thing that mars this episode for me is the mixture of feline experiences from death to dropping from high places to spinning in a bucket.

The best thing is undoubtedly the characters, an Irishman with a hot-line to his maker, a wonderful hillbilly Daddy played superbly by Royal Dano (I had no idea who he was until now but he really took quirky to a new level of character acting) and the disabled ferry-crossing matriarch played by Geraldine Brooks. And through all this walks our bemused hero dispensing wisdom, healing and pain in measure each each according to their need.
