  • Excessive and meandering verbiage from every character. Actions are not very well explained. Overall, a disappointing episode from one of the best tv series ever made.

    6.5
    Yes, the episode is extremely well shot and scored - as usual. However, the characters seem to be stepping outside themselves too suddenly. Such abrupt and yet unexplained turns are not in keeping with the well developed plot progression in previous episodes - especially the first season's. So much screen time is taken up by the various and wordy monologues, that there isn't any time left to show the actions which give rise to them. Additionally, the direction seems to be lacking the exactitude of the first season, letting the actors off the hook for delivering relatively wooden line readings with respect to what we have come to expect from this fine cast. Not having yet seen the rest of the series, I hope to see the levels of writing and direction restored to their previous superb standards.moreless
