  • In this episode Renton, Eureka, and her kids meet a member of the Vodarac, Tiptory.

    This was a good episode in that it sets the show up for much later in the seires, as it introduces the Vodarak race, which is sure to play a much bigger role in later episodes. When Renton and Eureka with her kids meet a Vodarac lady, Holland and the Gekkostate interfere wanting to capture her for money, as the Vodarac are being persued by the government. Its a wild-ride episode that is just a exciting one to watch, as it gives more insight on the way that Holland, and Renton act.moreless
  • A very enjoyable episode.

    This is the episode that will make you raise an eyebrow. If you’ve been following the show since the beginning, you’ll see how shocking Gekko State behaves, both from the team and Eureka herself. Because of this, you will be connecting with Renton more then anybody else. Take that, as you will.

    Now to me, for some odd reason, this episode felt extremely American made to me, especially the comedic moments. Everything else is solid although Eureka, at times, looked different from how she usually looks and of course sometimes-weird choices from the English cast and crew (Dialog for example).

    Other then that it’s a very well done episode, one of my favorites in fact.moreless
