One of the Worst Episodes of one of the best series
29 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Chant Down Babylon is right behind Cry Your Name as one of my least favorite Roswell episodes. Even though it is written by series executive producer Ronald D. Moore (who wrote some fine episodes for Star Trek: The Next Generation), it seems as if he doesn't get the series and thinks he needs to remake it as a horror series. The episode goes against much of the characterization that came before. Breaking set can be good, but it seemed like he didn't like the characters and thought it would work better to have them act as if they were possessed. One of the low points of the third season -- and of the entire series.
