The Root of Evil
11 January 2011 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Oh-kay... My fellow German viewer was so passionate in their review that they forgot grammar and spell-checking. But since he's condemning Tony, it's only fair that someone examine his judgment of Tony. But a couple of things out of the way first.

Ducky's character goes through some development in this episode and David McCallum gives a touching performance. Ducky's moments add drama to the usual light tone of many (but by no means most) episodes. The main plot, meanwhile, is sufficiently twisty to keep us watching with interest, although it's hardly groundbreaking. The usual high standard is followed, resulting in a 7/10 overall.

In the end, I was left wondering, "Why does my German fellow user get so upset?" Tony's actions fall into the gray area at worst, but immoral? Hardly. Then there is their harsh 1/10 rating for this episode. And the fact that their claim of lack of character development is completely contradictory to the evidence in recent episodes.

Even if my opinion is not considered, the plausibility that this episode would be a 1/10 is definitely approaching zero when you start to think about what 1/10 means: The. Worst. It. Can. Possibly. Be. IMDb Bottom 100 bad. Waaaay too many users throw ones and tens haphazardly, not realizing the extremes that 1/10 and 10/10 imply. It's a good thing the ratings of these people do not affect the IMDb Top 250 thanks to the undisclosed, but obviously effective filters and the vague "only votes from regular voters are considered" declaration. I'd be willing to bet most of these extremists are not users dedicated enough to earn the status of a "regular voter"...
