Silly and Fun
21 May 2018 | by GunnersMateSee all my reviews

It's Not Easy Being Green is a mostly light and goofy episode built around an epicenter of a bowling rivalry between Eureka and Area 51 scientists. It is fun, it's silly, and we get a monster-of-the-week feel which makes for happy viewing. Padding out the episode is a follow up to the Insane in the P-Brane episode with Lexie's baby daddy. It is fairly predictable and innocuous and sometimes that is just what the doctor ordered for viewing pleasure. A disappointing element is that the latest story arc seemed haphazardly appended to the tale, which felt forced and does not bode well for the development of the arc itself. Let's hope the arc improves in the future episodes.
