Action Aborad a Classic Train: Most Cool:
24 January 2011 | by (Cornwall) – See all my reviews

Not as Good as Previous Attempts, but quite enjoyable, regardless of some weak Plot Points! The Character of Orwell is beginning to Mature into a Formidable adversary for anyone challenging The Cape, who it seems is played by someone I've never Heard of before (though he does look very Familiar, I'm sure I've seen him on Shows Before, and when I recall, I'm sure it will be a Big relief!) But I digress, casting a person in the Lead who I have not watched before, often makes me dislike a Show, but since this is Brand Spanking New, I will reserve Judgment until at least a few have aired, if it survives that is! Saying all this I still like this episode Very Much and will now Continue to catch it Because I love Summer Glau, and will watch her to see how good an actress she is developing into:

Thanx for Tuning in: Cheers T:
