    Like a fan of garcia i love this episode, mostly because she is great and because the team was there too doing a good job. The story not very acurate? But i really enjoy it Love everything has to do with internet, hackers, and investigation

    What an awful episode! It seems that the writers had a lot of undeveloped ideas and tossed all them into this episode, making its story confusing, badly executed and full of deus ex machina. The discovery of the second killer is the bigger example of the latter. I don't remember seeing him between the hackers or having any role in the story previously to the scene where he appears, talks with hackerboy about the price of tea in China and, btw, drink this poisoned beverage because maybe someday you'll realize that I am the second killer, niej niej niej. And, oh wait, the good guys arrive just in time to save the dying hackerboy because Reid has the magical antidote in his magical bag.

    Not to mention the Black Queen Garca and her anarcomoronic rant. Yeah, right, me Badass Emo Fat Hacker hate the System, man, down with the Man, man, me Badass Emo, yea.

    I wonder if the writers ever been around a hacker or an anticapitalist activist or a real human being.

    And is it me or the hackers had a huge nostalgia for the 80s and wouldn't accept any computer more sophisticated than an Amiga 500? Why everything about the Breakfast Club (or whatever the name of the hacker group was) seemed so outdated, so predictable, so cliche?

    The virtual talk between Hackerhunk and Garcia? C'mon! Big pixels in the background to tell us that it was a cyberchat? And they have to connect using a solitary that runs in Windows 3.0? Please!



    Ugh! CM is worse every season, but at least they kept a minimum of quality. Not the case of this episode. Here they hit rock botton, made a hole and went straight to the centre of the Earth.moreless
