Across The Sea
12 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Someone before me wrote that this was not a good episode. Not sure what they watched but this is one of the best ever if not the best. I loved this story and thought the actors, especially the 2 boys did a phenomenal job.

It is episodes like this that make this show one of the best ever. I cannot wait for the final 2 episodes. The writers of this show are nothing short of genius.

Referring back to season 1 and showing a scene that related to last night's story. Pure genius.

I loved it. You can't get much better. Anyone who things otherwise doesn't know good TV.
