    The idea behind this episode was kind of lifted from Die Hard ( cops hidden in the building try to foil the bad guys) and probably not so important anyway ( though the facemask gadget was kind of cool). More interesting was the interplay between Dorian and John. There is a lot of heart and humor in their interplay with each other. I thought in the beginning of the series that John would be sceptical about the interaction with an android, but it seems he has no problem accepting his partner for who he is and to treat him as an equal. I thought prejudice against artificial life and the question what their rights are would be one if the themes of this show, but at the moment it seems just like an unusual cop buddy show with great onliners.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The train wreck shown happened on 15 February 2010 at 8:28 AM near Halle, Belgium. It was the railway accident with the worst death toll in over fifty years in Belgium. 18 dead, 162 wounded.

    • Goof. The first call Dorian answers while ascending the stairs is from a woman speaking perfect Brazilian Portuguese, he answers (terribly) it in a female voice and explains that in "Portuguese culture people prefer a female voice in moments of crisis". Although both speak Portuguese the cultural aspects of Portugal and Brazil are completely different. It was a goof or Dorian was not able to differentiate between the Brazilian Portuguese accent and the European Portuguese one.
