  • Another great show that got cancelled!!

    9.5
    This episode revolves around human cloning and the issues surrounding it. A scientist known as Geppetto is cloning and four identical babies are the result. Three of the babies are rescued in an illegal alien stop, but a couple gets away with one of the babies. They are chased by an assassin working for Geppetto who needs the baby as soon as possible. What Geppetto has done is cloned herself in order to have organs harvested from the babies to replace her own failing organs. This episode also had a very heartwarming side to it. It showed how humans can put their differences aside and help each other. The Hispanic couple was helping the baby; on their journey they received help from a nurse who was a complete stranger. The nurse gave them what appeared to be all of her money in order to take care of the cloned baby.



    I really love this show and wish it hadn't been cancelled.moreless
  • Another episode revolving around Gepetto and her cloning operation.

    8.5
    This was a really powerful episode, the second about Gepetto and her cloning business. Last time she got away but this time she got caught. It turns out that she was producing cloned babies to cure herself as well as her clients. Hood clearly has very strong opinions on the wrongs of doing this. After Gepetto is captured he says to her that he would sacrifice her talent for an insect, showing how much he reviles the practice. There is still too little interaction between Hood and Rachel though. I would like to see more of them outside of the cases. I don't know where this series is going but the cases are certainly quite interesting.moreless
  • A different side of Hood

    10
    With a very controversial topic, this episode was very good. Finally Gepetto is caught and she was cloning human beings for personal reasons.

    I saw a different Hood this time. A little bit emotional and vulnerable. He talks to Rachel about it but I wonder if it was the truth. I'm sure there's more to it than that. And I'm sure it has something to do with his wife's death.

    The dynamic between the lead characters is still very good. This time there was concern from both of them; Rachel is hit and Hood is emotional. I hope Hood's thoughts are addressed soon.

    Happy ending, good episode. Keep up the good work.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Rachel: What's on your mind, Hood? And don't say nothing.
      Hood: When I was, am, holding that child, that cloned child, I had a feeling for a second what it must be like to be Geppetto, God-like, and it made me dizzy. I mean, if this is really where we're headed, if, if we're really going to be playing God, then I don't want a part of it.

    • Miranda: You're a coward, Dr. Hood. You play being a good man, but you'll never be great.
      Hood: I can live with that.

    • Miranda: You would sacrifice a talent like mine for a cloned infant?
      Hood: She has a name. Esperanza. And yes, I'd sacrifice your talent for an insect.

    • Wayne (talking about Geppetto): You know, she wanted me to kill you?
      Hood: Wow. I must be doing something right.

    • Pete Hammer: So you're saying, Jennifer committed a crime?
      Hood: Well, the problem is, cloned babies are people. No matter what their origin and some organs can't be removed without killing a person. If you remove the organ, in order to put it into someone else, the donor's going to die and that, last time I checked, was murder.

    • Pete Hammer: I'm not saying I won't take a drink now and then. How about you, Sweetie?
      Rachel: I like a glass of Italian red. Or three.

    • Rachel (to Hood): Why would you even think of cloning yourself? That's twice as many problems. I guess some people just can't get enough of themselves.

    • Pete Hammer: I'm sorry for you, Dr. Hood.
      Hood: Me? Why?
      Pete Hammer: The burden you must carry, with the things you see.

    • (in a nursery while Hood is holding a baby)
      De La Peña: It's kinda eerie, isn't it?
      Hood: It's not eerie. It's profound. The chances of identical triplets is one in 200 million.
      De La Peña: That's why we called you in, Doctor Hood.

    • Hood: Could've been you in there.
      Rachel: You don't get rid of me that easy.
