This episode defines the style of the series.
4 July 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this episode as it was so real. This was a much more accurate representation of what war is about. It is not all action and glory. It was actually depressing which made it much more believable. The circumstances in this episode tested the limits of the characters' human spirit. Most sci-fi/war shows are action and battle. The battles fought by the '58th' were from within. It was refreshing to see a (sci-fi) series tackle the idea of fighting from this point of view. I would love to see this series come back some time. Or continued. I think the general viewer-ship pool just prefers their stories tied up at the end with a neat little bow.
