24 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is worth watching all twelve previous episodes of this show just to watch this one. Most of Season 1 was fairly well done, but not brilliant. A couple episodes were bad, and a couple were good. The three episodes of season 2 that precede this one are decent, and not necessarily boring (the premiere being the exception, in that it was better than the others). In any case, this episode is the one I consider to be the best in the whole series. Even if all the other episodes were complete crap, it would be worth watching the whole show just for this one episode.

I don't know what happened to the show for this episode, but whatever they did, it worked. This is what I wish the whole show had been like. Sadly, only a few of the other episodes measured up to the quality of this one.
