  • A life-sucking creature from Mongo visits earth.

    Hmm, a life-sucking creature that ages its victims is not very original, but at least this episode didn't have major plotholes (there was a minor one, but I'll come to that). I even think it's been one of the better episodes notwithstanding the unoriginal plot. I thought the comic relief in this episode, the dead soldier was used quite effectively, no matter how odd that sounds and even if that plot has been done before as well (entire movies have been based on it actually). Still, a dead guy getting a business card from an interested saleswoman was fun.

    Sooner or later, the writers will have to deal with Joe. I actually thought this would have been a good episode to finally tell him about the situation, but no, conveniently in his case the aging process also affected his memory even though the two athletes remembered what happened and who they were.
