Almost Gets Back To Intensity of Season 1 Episode
28 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode approaches the intensity of a Season 1 episode directed by Richard Donner (SUPERMAN THE MOVIE), "The Night of The Murderous Spring". In that episode, West is drugged and thinks he has murdered Arte. In this one, Arte thinks he has killed West. Both episodes play on the attachment & comrades that West & Arte have become for the viewer. These are not the only times they almost kill each other in the series, but these are 2 of the more memorable ones.

The major difference with Spring is the presence of Dr. Lovelass who has a plot to take over the world, where in this one Emmett Stark has a sworn vengeance to kill West & Gordon when he breaks out of prison. Both episodes have a quality & intensity to them.

For some reason, the black & white season 1 episodes often seem better than many of the color ones, but this one approaches & competes with that episode quite well. I rate this one as highly as that season 1 episode.
