Just a note on the other review...
20 November 2013 | by (Tromaville NJ) – See all my reviews

The blonde Lance Henriksen was supposed to be Omar Goopta/L. Ron Hubbard's character, not Jose Chung's, as the other reviewer stated.

However, everything else he said is right. This is another Darin Morgan masterpiece, but I prefer his second Millennium episode, "Somehow Satan Got Behind Me", which is the perfect lead in to the finale of Season 2 (and what should have been the series finale). It's funny (with Charles Nelson Reilly once again shining for the last time in the role, which should have been spun off if you ask me), clever, disturbing in the right way...it's a really great departure and every bit as fully formed and intelligent as you'd expect from Darin Morgan, the only TV auteur who drifted from show to show, never creating one but always with his own unique voice.
