  • A brilliant show. Again it wonders into something that most of us have thought of in science but have never really gone face to face with. Brilliant acting by Sewell, I felt him there for a moment. I'm still warming to Marley (pardon the pun).moreless

    We start of by meeting the corpse of a young woman only to find out shortly after she was dying anyway. We see her as frozen, completely frozen solid. It's not pretty, but it's not gore either.

    The topic around this is cryogenics and cheating death, the use of pharmaceuticals to not prolong this lifetime, but save your future one. It touches on the ethics & science of the issue without beating us with it.

    The support cast are good. Well acted if not stilted. Again we see that Sewell whilst brilliant is not entirely smart when it comes to women, he is sought after whilst he is completely oblivious to it.

    The motive for the murders is an old one, the people die for being an affront to a personal idealism and belief structure. They must die and not cheat death or prolong their life. A terrific episode and is certainly watchable!moreless
  • Good season so far..

    After seing the first 3 episodes I was worried that this show would turn out to be some "Bones" wannabe. Why? Well, first of all Bones and Booth have an unique chemistry, and some sexual tension going on between them, which I believe will be explored indefinetely by the writers.

    But also the show is equally divided between science and police field work: chasing leads, talk to suspects. The latter does happen in Eleventh Hour, but at first everything was coordinated by Hood, making Rachel more like a Chase to his House. I mean, the FBI agent was used only for theory discussions, with the final word always coming from Hood. And she also seldom laugh, making her a very dull character.

    But again, since episode 4, we saw her smiling and standing up more.

    I'm taking the time to watch all the espisodes, and I can say that after the 5th episode, wow.. I think the show has matured some and can have a long run..moreless
  • It gets better...

    It was a decent episode. What is right? To leave this life for good or hold on to it while waiting in storage? The plot was interesting, it's all about business and someone's goals and ambition. One of the things I like about Hood is how he can be talking about science, be very wise and he doesn't show off; you still like him after he explains something. He's humble about it. The conversations between Hood and Young are natural and they always come up with with a personal question that is case-related. Hood talks about his wife's illness, not too much, but I'm sure we'll hear about in the next episodes. I also like how the episodes end with a conversation between the main characters while they get to know each other little by little.moreless
  • CSI, Alias, Fringe anyone? Mystery, Action, Drama, Anyone? Yes, what do you get when you mix them all up. Pure awesomeness

    With a little bit of touch of many other TV shows combined this new franchise by the likes of Jerry Bruckheimer does not disappoint and leaves you wanting more.

    At first this show may seem the usual, out of whack science which you won't be able to understand on a normal day, but the combination of the lead characters with the excellent acting leads on a much different platform. This show not only provides suspense, but fills a void if you don't want to watch CSI anymore with the right touch of Alias and "out of the box" science. In the end it basically comes down to your personal taste. If you like to pass time watching some decent shows which can't bore you on your worst days. Then you should at least give this a try.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • The eruption Hood was talking to Young about in the car is the one from Mount Tambora, located on Sumbawa Island in Indonesia. It was in 1815. The eruption released sulfur into the stratosphere causing a global climate anomaly. In the summer of 1816, countries in the Northern Hemisphere suffered extreme weather conditions and it was called the Year Without a Summer. On June 4, 1816, frosts were reported in Connecticut and by the following day, most of New England was gripped by the cold front. On June 6, 1816, snow fell in Albany, New York, and Dennysville, Maine. Canada also experienced the same extreme weather conditions.

    • Hood reads the patent number as: 8,293,024. This is confirmed on screen at the top right of the document on the laptop screen. A search of US patents does not list this as a valid patent but it does come up with 1 close match using the search. The patent for "Method of Electrical Processing." Filed by Klipsch in 1940. The patent number is 2,293,024 and there are 8 pages. Which gives you the match for 8,293,024.

    • When Hood looks up the patent for the chemical that is being used to kill people he finds a patent "Trimethyl Crozine" that he says was filed by: Adastra Pharmaceuticals, El Segundo, CA. However, if you look closely that is listed as the correspondence address. Below it in blurry text it reads:
      Assignee: GOOGLE INC., Mountain View, CA (US)

    • Goof: When the security guard opened the safe to steal the chemical compound he used a 5 digits code to open it: 2243#. Later, when Hood and Rachel asked the director of the facility to open the safe, he only used 3 digits to open it.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • (Rachel just brought Hood a hamburger to conduct an experiment)
      Rachel: Do you want me to go back to the cafeteria for some fries?
      Hood: Where's your team spirit? Have some patience please.

    • (Janet (student) obviously infatuated with Dr. Hood however, Hood is oblivious)
      Hood: Janet, there's no analysis computer. Is there a T3 connection anywhere in the building?
      Janet: Our professor's computer. Or, if you'd like a little privacy I have Wi-Fi in my dorm room!
      (Jacob is speechless)
      (Rachel blinks)
      Hood: No, your professor's computer will be fine.
      (Janet exhales, looks disappointed.)
      (Rachel closes her eyes, then looks at the back on Hood's head like she's slightly amused.)

    • Rachel: So, you said the ethics of cryogenics is debatable and it's probably crazy to have your head lopped off and preserved for future use. Does that mean you agree with Nash? You think cryonics should be stopped?
      Hood: Oh, on the contrary. When immortality is outlawed, only outlaws will be immortal.
