Goofs

Firstly, during the brief on the VX nerve agent, the formula on the screen isn't VX. Secondly, Malcolm says "Look at that chlorine bonding...": there is no chlorine in the formula on the screen. Thirdly, VX is C11H26NO2PS. No chlorine there either. See more »

The Only Tedious Episode So Far
22 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The beginning of this episode is really gripping. As the hour unfolded I found myself looking at how many DVD chapters had elapsed. Whilst for the actors this was a cherry episode because it was shot chronologically, as a viewer it was rather predictable in the style of "Lord Of The Flies." I knew how it would end, just not when, but as the DVD chapter was 9 & firearms were produced, it knew the end was near. The acting was superior, the idea was brilliant. As they say, the operation was a success but the patient expired.

Overall, one tedious episode out of all the ones I've seen is about the worst thing I can say about MI-5. It's just a brilliantly acted, directed & written series! What I really like about it is that the main characters come & go, just as in real life. & there is mortality on screen just as there is what is jokingly known as 'real life'.
