Nothing but a clip show. bleh
27 May 2008 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

Clip shows will never gain favor from me. This is even worse because a potentially interesting and suspenseful story is cut with clips. Something like this should have gotten its own complete story.

This episode might have been suspenseful during the original run. At that time people might not have known whether the series would be returning in the fall. Now though, it's just annoying having this kind of event occur within a clip show.

But regardless, this could have been a really serious story and plot spanning multiple episodes. And if during its original run with only a couple episodes remaining you give the audience this tragic event and fill it up with clips from previous episodes I would be really annoyed if I had been a fan. Given the ease with which this episode was resolved, this was a complete waste. Season 4 all around was pretty bad.

Clip shows are just nonsense.
