Good shows, even great shows, have their ebbs and flows, their ups and downs.

Sometimes the producers will sense that a change of pace is needed and they will, like that famous TV chef, kick an episode up a notch by adding "creative salt." That said, nothing to date in this series prepared me for the raw emotional power of this episode. Wow.

Perhaps it was an inside joke by the writers to feature the marquee for one of the BACK TO THE FUTURE films in their alternate universe, but intended or otherwise the reference was spot on.

In terms of production standards, writing, directing, special effects and even the excellent makeup, this single episode packs the emotional punch of a freight train and as good as anything you might see on the big screen.

Wow.
