    Given the developments within this episode it should have been a corker, but Max's reunion with Manticore buddy Zack is questionably underplayed. Maybe it's due to Gregory's acting, who contributes little else other than giving Logan's character a run for his money as the most boring man alive, but I suspect it has something to do with the meandering script and a subplot as involving as being a third wheel. Even Lydecker's involvement can't elevate this snorer. Why Zack waits till Max confronts him to talk is never really explained and his "I in team" attitude already irritates and he's set up to be a reoccurring character! Gregory Lee just can't deliver a line to save his life, never mind acting as though he's working for a delivery service – his acting hasn't improved much since the series, but you can catch him in Dante's Cove, a soft-core porn sci-fi show with about as much sex appeal as a trip to your local old folk's home.moreless

    This wasn't one of my favorite episodes. Yes there was the usual action sequences but the storyline wasn't as strong as other ones. Yes she does find one of her siblings in this episode. Yet I found myself wanting a little more of the storyline with her and her siblings. This episode showed a lot more of the secondary characters and how they affect Max's life. While it was somewhat boring it does bring new perspective on the life in Seattle. The friends of Max and the her working environment. This one has a bit of a surprise ending for me. I didn't expect it to end this way.moreless

    This episode shows the first appearance of Zack who will be pivotal to the series later on. Max and Zack\'s teamwork during the fight is excellent despite the 10 years of time they\'ve had to forget everything which is exactly what Max has been doing.



    Vigelsang coming back just to get killed was pretty pointless unless they just wanted to show how ruthless Lydecker can be when it comes to his kids. Valerie, logan\'s ex coming back to extort money from him was also pretty useless as it didn\'t make Max overly jealous or have any real impact ont he characters or the storyline.



    The writers on this show need to come up with some new names. Zack in this episode says his name is is Sam which is Max\'s clone\'s name in Season 2 \'She Ain\'t Heavy\'. Max uses the name Rachel when she goes to that conference which is the name of the girl Alec was in love with in \'The Berrisford Agenda\' or maybe they were using them on purpose. who knows?moreless

  • TRIVIA (6)

  • QUOTES (10)

    • (Max shows Logan the personal ad containing the numbers 332960073452)
      Logan: A random series of numbers is significant how?
      Max: Those numbers are me.
      Logan: This is your bar code?
      Max: Black and white for the whole world to see. It's like opening the paper and finding my panties.

    • Normal: I don't want to interrupt your social life with my petty concerns so why don't we just close down the business and live off the charity of strangers, huh?

    • Sam: Who would I talk to about working here?
      Sketchy: Well, if you're smart, no one. But if you're desperate and male prostitution is out of the question talk to that fool. (pointing to Normal)

    • Logan: It's gonna take more than Feng Shui to get me back on the dance floor, but thanks.

    • Max (talking to the guard dog): Let's get one thing straight. I'm the leader of the pack. Back off!

    • Max: I let Normal's screeching roll off me like water, I let cheating boyfriends roll off me like water, I let everything that is wrong and lousy in this world roll off me like water...but this is my motorcycle.

    • Max (in a voiceover): But then there are those nights that just plain suck.

    • Max: Ninja...650...black, like my mood thanks to you.

    • Max: I never pictured you as the married type. You're more the lone warrior. You know - windmills, armor.

    • Max: Oh, please tell me you're not one of those people -- Because a raindrop fell in the ocean 10,000 years ago and a butterfly farted in India, you and I are sitting right here right now enjoying a cup of coffee that tastes like goat piss.
      Sam: Anything's possible.
      Max: Unravel this mystery, grasshopper. What's the sound of one hand hitting you upside your head, hmm?
