  • A lot of inconsistancies; Bianca is more and more unlikeable.

    7.5
    Character, storyline and scario consistancy is very important to me, so I had a lot of things to pick on with this ep:



    Firstly, the man who's lover had got her hair stuck in the spa fan: would he have pulled the plug, or got a bucket and started bailing? No way would you just let someone stay under water like that.



    And Bianca's reaction to Dan finding out about her marriage, and blaming Jack, was vindictive and short-sighted. Did she really expected Jack to keep his mouth shut, especially since she didn't offer any explaination as to why she was sleeping with her husband AND his best friend? I thought Bianca was extremely selfish about the whole thing, not thinking Dan at least had the right to know about her marriage. If it was so 'open', what was wrong with telling him?



    Her blaming Jack seemed typical of her self-entitlement. I don't think she's going to last much longer as a character - she's got Frank and Gabrielle's backs up as a result of blaming Dan for her failure to order medication. There seems to be nothing redeeming about her personally, for all she's a brilliant surgeon. Maybe she's a character we can see from time to time, but I don't think she'd work out as a fulltime character.



    I didn't see why Dan took Bianca back. She had proven that she was willing to pin the blame for her mistake on him as soon as things went sour. No wonder Jack was so judgemental when Dan admitted he and Bianca were back together; in the same position, I'd show the same concern. I thought it was incredibly ungrateful of Dan to basically throw Jack out, and I hope we see Dan to a bit of grovelling and Mea-Culpaing over it. I was glad Dan finally got the spine to call it quite with Bianca, and liked that the medical storyline with the man and his lover - who both turn out to be married - resonated with him, about not wanting to be 'the man always skulking around on the lookout for the husband'.



    Finally, we got to see why Sean had left neurosurgery, as well as his devotion to his sister and niece. But Chris Vance's performance felt a little wooden, kinda took away from the effect. And once more, the show is suffering from too many cooks - Zoe had little too contribute, samd with Bart (except when he asked if Frank was leaving - that was a hoot, and it didn't surprise me that Bart was the only one brave, or stupid, enough to ask him that.)



    Cate's old girlfriend Jo shows up after traising around the world. Jo seems like she could be a fantastic character, and make short work of the 'cute guys' - my money's on her hooking up with either Jack or Vincent :p She also has the potential to show us more of Cate and her history - I think they could be real foils for one another. Wait and see...



    Altogether, not too bad an episode, although a lack of attention to detail bothered me. I liked how the characters reacted to the medical storylines, and hope they show more of that.moreless
