Ages Off
24 May 2009 | by See all my reviews

It just seemed to me that some of the characters' ages were off in this episode. First off, when they discover the woman's body by the well, Lilli says something to the effect of her being gone for about 50 years, however, the crime happened closer to 70 years prior. That said, some of those characters (Will Paige, man standing next to Audrey in the soup line) would be close to 100 years old. I know it would be difficult to find actors close to that age (or apparently, apply sufficient makeup to make them look that way), but I just found the entire episode very disconcerting because of that fact. Overall, I did enjoy the episode's content, though.
