One of the better season 7 episodes.
6 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Though it could clearly be seen as a propaganda episode for anti-smoking, this was clearly one of the best episodes of season 7. Ifelt as if it really got back more to the moody atmosphere that made the earlier seasons so much better. You also have Tobin Bell, who has been made famous by his character of Jigsaw from the Saw movies. Bell gives one of the best performances that i have seen in any of the episodes. In this episode the agents investigate the global Morley tobacco company. The same company that CSM smokes. The end of the episode closes out similar to the tense unresolved endings of earlier episodes.
