What's the matter? Cat got your tongue?
7 July 2009 | by (Sandy, UT, United States) – See all my reviews

I have mixed feelings about 4-D. First of all I don't like the fact that they threw in the double meaning for the title by making Lukesh's apartment number 4-D. Seemed kind of pointless to do that. While I don't hate Reyes in the episode, she still has a few moments that kind of irk me. Like the completely random changing of her mind when she goes all Million Dollar Baby on Doggett right at the end. The idea for the episode is a sound one and a good one. A serial killer who can travel between alternate universes. I like it. But there were some things that needed more explanation. For example, how did Lukesh appear out of nowhere when he was nowhere near his little portal in the alley? Or was there no little portal, rather Lukesh had the ability to make portals? Or were there just multiple portals at different locations that happened to be where Lukesh needed them, and if so, how did he know where they were? Another problem, the whole if you kill the paralyzed Doggett then the non-paralyzed one comes back. First of all, two Doggetts can't be in the same universe, then how come two Lukeshes could be in the same world? If Lukesh is crossing back and forth then wouldn't his alter self in one dimension be transferred or was the alter Lukesh already dead? And if he was dead then why was he still living with his mother in apartment 4-D in both worlds? Anwyay, as I say I really do enjoy the episode for the most part. I don't like some of the unexplained stuff that doesn't make sense. I do like the final scene when Reyes see Doggett again after just killing him. But I also wonder why it was just her that remembered the whole ordeal. Maybe she was just on an acid trip or something. I give the episode a 7 out of 10.
