a fascinating departure
7 October 2010 | by (Estero Island) – See all my reviews

What's going on, and why is the are the aliens suddenly more compelling than the humans? In the wake of Charles' unsolved wedding night murder, Diana and Lydia are forced into a gladiatorial death match. It's freaking brilliant, over-the-top and sublime. The episode starts off with an overhaul of the credits, and for a moment it feels like everything's been revamped...the writing feels more realistic, and most of the characters seem to be gone. Mike gets swept into the resistance struggles in a small town, and it suddenly seems like he wants to make it his home, as he shacks up with a widow and her daughter. But what about his romance with Julie, and deep commitment to the L.A. resistance, you ask? Go with it, the episode says. The writing quickly falls into hackneyed, however, and at the end Mike does an illly-explained about-face and heads home. Still, a fascinating episode.
