The picture on Olivia's desk that she stares at is of John Scott, her former FBI partner and lover. See more »

Goofs

During one scene where Olivia visits Nina, there is a Windows logo on the back of a flat screen monitor. The time period this episode often portrays would have been before Windows existed. However, this is all part of Walters "noir" story, where characters also use mobile communication devices. See more »

Typically bad, but not the worst episode ever
2 May 2010 | by (SF Bay Area, CA) – See all my reviews

Sorry orizano, but giving this episode 9 out of 10 is just pure fanboyism.

Most musical episodes of normally non-musical shows are bad. This episode was no exception. It was neither a "character builder" nor something to advance the story arc much.

The only positives I can see from this episode was several appearances by Gene the cow, a cool looking prop (I won't spoil anything by saying what it is), and Olivia looking period lovely.

The negatives were many: the mixing of modern devices into the story require the repeated tired excuse of Walter's "imagination," Olivia (Anna Torv) is a pretty weak singer, the song choices were uninspired, the few amusing moments were unexceptional, and the plot was very muddled.

It was possibly not a complete throwaway episode, but I can't think of anything that one would miss by never seeing it.
