Good, but could have been better
24 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

Many TV shows have become expert at *seeming* to advance the story, but not actually doing so. This episode was good entertainment, but we weren't really told much of anything. How do any of these acts contribute to saving the world? How did anything anyone did, actually make a difference? Peter deliberately shows up for the scene containing his apparent death - why did he actively try to make that scene come true instead of actively trying to change it?

I don't think there is a consistent logic in these events, and ultimately we didn't really learn anything new about the underlying reasons for it all.

Still, good show, and I'll certainly keep watching. Great characters all-round, even if that walking fan-boy's dream, Ali Larter, had much too little screen-time!

8 out of 10.
