Much better than the pilot
13 August 2020 | by cartoonnewsCPSee all my reviews

This episode was better than the pilot. The pilot was fine but it just had too much going on at once. I liked how this episode was able to relax a bit and only have two plots (Mariner/Boilmer and Rutherford). The pacing was better because of it and Mariner of course takes center stage again with her witty humor and proof that experience trumps book studies. And the ending was sweet with Mariner staging the whole thing to help Boimler boost his ego. She's such a good friend.

As for the subplot, just loved how the upper guys looked mad at first but then supported rutherford's decision. Really cool that he wanted to spend more time with Tendi.

I'll give this episode a B.
