A wonderfully meta and self-aware send up
4 February 2016 | by OwlsWatchSee all my reviews

This episode will certainly be divisive--but it is a fantastic throwback to some of the older, sillier "monster of the week" episodes, much like a top-tier "comedy" episode of Dr Who. It is bizarre and utterly hilarious with a brilliant performance from Rhys Darby.

I was very skeptical at first, but by the end I was absolutely in love with this episode. It is a departure from the ultra-serious 2 episodes that came before it but it pays homage to everything that made the original run so special--even at its silliest. When this new run is finished, I expect this episode to become a fan-favorite. It brings some much-needed levity to the modern series.
