User Reviews

 
Not the best of the season
25 June 2020 | by BirdzOfParadiseSee all my reviews

The weakest episode of this otherwise stellar season. Great suspense at the commercial breaks but the show was otherwise lacking. I get why they jumped to the 70s with the bicentennial, but otherwise it was a lackluster decade for the tv approach they took.
