The Wait Is Over!
1 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After over a year of a wait which seemed much much longer if you're a fan, we get the premiere episode of the third season. And for my money, it's a doozy.

This was definitely worth the long delay. As stated by Jackson Publick, this episode answers certain questions in quite an obscure way. While much of the anticipation stems from finding out just what the Hell happened in the escape pod last season, Doc and Jackson spend a lot of the episode with simple hilarity. The episode deserves a second watch just to hear what you missed the first time during fits of laughter! As far as specifics, without giving away too much, the explanation for the title is pure genius. Myra makes a cameo which may or may not confirm her story (at least, it confirms part of it...). I think the biggest surprise is the absence of our main characters. The story focuses entirely on the relationship between The Monarch and Dr. Girlfriend and it took two viewings before I realized there is no sighting or even mention of Hank and Dean. In fact, only Brock make a quick, silent appearance. These facts are not faults, as I said they're not even noticeable.

All in all, a good solid episode and an excellent kickoff to what promises to be great season of television! Check it out!
