  • 9 out of 9.5 go out to a total surprise - a BRILLIANT Jason Priestly!

    Standard episode, plot-wise: search operation, bad guy, trouble... BUT then enters Jason Priestly - yes, Brandon from Beverly Hills, the uptight, clean, boring Priestly - who mops the floor with his paranoid egomaniac God-complex military freak persona - this is ABSOLUTELY the best performance from any actor in this first few episodes of the series and one that will have me reconsider cringing in fear whenever I see his name on the credits. The other .5 for the episode goes to the revelation that there are dozens of army bases strewn all across the USA - and no one knows who controls them now - which is indeed a scary proposition. The score fails to get a 10 only because of the very naive premise of the last valiant revenge scene where Priestley's former girlfriend blows up the rest of the bombs - but the though of them being armed while not put into play somewhere is REALLY stretching it. Still, a tour-de-force episode!
