    This was the strongest episode so far into the season. It Really should have been the season premiere. It had a lot more of the ingredients than "Stairway to Heaven" Parker has to stop a major political assassination, The backstep crew all has a worthwhile contribution to the episode. Talmadge, Ramsey, Olga and Donovan all have parts that are more than a simple cameo.



    The Character of Rhino fit well into the flow of the episode, a character who had history with Parker that was established very easily by a brief conversation with Donovan then confirmed by Parker and Rhino battling in the alleyway. With the Parker-Rhino relationship, they were going for some good action with some good comedy. They made more shots then they missed on that front. but there were things that could have been excluded. Most notably the sewage getting dumped on Parker. Not to be a prude or anything, it just was trying t make a joke and it was a miss for me as I'm sure many others.



    One of the reasons I would have put this as a better candidate for the season premiere was due tot the fact that there was some strong Frank/Olga interaction. Being that the second season ended with them seeming to be getting a little closer, the scene where Parker expressed concern for Olga's safety would have been at least a god nod toward that connection, even if they weren't going to make any great strides forward. This episode at least paid proper respect to the development the viewers were expecting.



    There were a number of good touches in this episode. Parker's "Golf Practice" was a very enjoyable scene. The briefing about the US soldiers killed in Columbia was good to establish the drama of the Program's mission that it can't always fix everything. The viewers were of course glad when the backstep was in time to un do that event. Finally, the moment where Parker is about to board the sphere and asks the entire room if there's anything he can un do for them was excellent. If you worked in that place and had access to Parker, I'd imagine in real life many people would try to get him to give them warnings about upcoming events or problems.



    An enjoyable adventure with plenty of action and comedy, exactly why we watched 7 Days.moreless

    • Darrin/Durwood
      In a homage to the classic TV sitcom, Bewitched, Olga's date for the welcoming ceremony is named Darren and Parker mistakenly refers to him at first as Darwin and later as Durwood. On Bewitched, Samantha's overbearing mother, Endora, frequently used those same names to refer to her daughter's husband, Darrin Stephens.
