I thought this episode was fairly good. The homicide story was good. The B-story line about the "Blue Flu" was well told and it fit nicely in with the A-story line. I think Danny and Hawkes at odds was a nice touch. It showed those who were fighting for their rights (Danny) and those who kept at their responsibility (everyone else). However, I think one of the best aspects was the larger role of Adam Ross. Adam is usually just the comedic relief - which there is nothing wrong with, but it was nice to see another side of him. I think A.J. Buckley did a terrific job with the emotion in the interrogation scene. This episode highlighted Adam's ability to connect with a boy who has troubles with his father. Since we learn in an earlier episode and season that Adam's dad was a bully to him, I think it gave their relationship more depth. Instead of just the average "I know this must be hard", Adam had actually connection to the kind of feelings Jake Kaplan was having. Overall I think it was a good highlight of Adam's character and I think A.J. Buckley acted very well.
This movie is solely about five guys who sit around for a long time in a rocket ship headed towards Jupiter's thirteenth moon. Where they find human life, well, rather many "attractive" women, an old man, and The Creature (a horrible costume, if i may say so). The MST3K version made me laugh hysterically and made the movie much more entertaining that it otherwise would have been. if you have an interest in this movie, i suggest getting the MST3K version. It's worth the watch. Too much interpretive dance if you ask me. The Creature could definitely use a little love. The special effects and definitely short of special...then again, we must remember the time period, but come on, the rocket could have been a little better.
