They're back and still in Panama
22 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

Well, at least we know what all Fiona's screaming was about in the trailers we've been watching for several months - arguing with Sam (surprise). The writers just don't seem to ever let Fiona grow up and become a true member of the team. She's back to her tiresomely old gritching, moaning and arguing again and Sam nearly comes to fisticuffs with both her and Mike in order to prevent them from ...(spoiler). Luckily Jesse was there to back him up.

Frankly, in my opinion, this season has gotten the entire franchise so screwed up that we don't know from one episode to the next what the show going to turn in to. It's gone from a protagonist who is clearly the good guy, altruistically helping the world, to one who is merely "hanging on" week after week. Matt Nix claimed that he wasn't going to make this into another continual "man behind the man" show but it is EXACTLY what he has done. Card's only connection to Anson simply has to be that he was somehow on Anson's list. Which makes him one of the "Organization" – a man behind the man.
