Bad bad trip
21 August 2010 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

I have been looking at the whole show again to see/appreciate how much I'd miss it... and I've been really disappointed in the second year. Yes, Summer Glau is more glamorous than the previous year, they brought in extra people to bring out her attributes, but that's about the only positive aspect.

This sleep episode is its nadir, unquestionably. I kept stopping and wondering what I'd missed. It's incomprehensible across the board at a time when the series needed to be peaking and sparking sponsors to be screaming for it to be kept alive.

Writing this makes no difference. The show is gone. But it's a reality check. I'll miss what they had the first year. The showrunners killed the show; the director killed this episode.
