  • This was an excellent episode of My Own Worst Enemy, and it made me even more upset that this show was canceled. It just keeps getting better and better. (Spoilers)

    I loved this episode of My Own Worst Enemy, and in my opinion it is probably the best episode of the series. It definitely shows why canceling the show was a bad idea. I loved the action in this episode, especially where Edward and Raymond teamed up to shoot some of the KGB agents. It was very suspenseful and entertaining at the same time. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens with Edward and his deceased parents. I like this new revenge plot they're starting. Overall though, I give this episode, The Night Train To Moscow, a 9.5 out of 10.moreless
  • Not bad but could do better

    I have to confess that I felt rather lukewarm towards this show for the first few episodes but felt this was the best one so far. It filled us in on more of the back story to Henry/Edward and helped to sort out some things I felt had not worked for me earlier.

    It's sad that this show has been cancelled before it really got going as there was probably quite a bit of potential here. However, perhaps it is best to let it go now and hopefully learn a few lessons for next season. Not the best show ever but not the worst either.moreless
  • one of the last episodes

    It's official: My Own Worst Enemy is cancelled. That means, or anyone who does watch this show, or cares, the show will most likely end abruptly. It won't have an ending, it will just stop. I did enjoy this show while it lasted. It deserved at least a whole season. And it doesn't seem fair that Knight Rider gets a pass but this show doesn't. One crazy last minute option is that more people watch it but that probably won't happen. So, rant over. This episode has Edward/Henry teaming up with a Kazhtstani spy, yes, there can be more to that country than Borat, to retrieve her husband she was forced to marry but she loves him and she wants to save him. Henry is having his own marital problems. He believes his wife is a spy. That means that any shred of normalcy in his life is gone. He confides in Skinner while still being unaware that she's Edward's lover. Edward doesn't care about love, or so he says, and he doesn't love Skinner. Skinner, however, appears to want more. Finally, it's revealed a little on hy Edward is such a womanizing jerk. His parents' death was the main reason for him becoming a spy and because he's a spy, he can't get into a real relationship. He doesn't understand how Edward could love his wife. Meredith, the spy, doublecrosses her agency and has Edward helping save her husband, on the pretense that if Edward will help her, she will reveal who killed his parents. She also indirectly helps Henry with his wife but she gives him the right but wrong information about her. Edward, Raymond, and Meredith find her husband and he's safe but sadly, Meredith died protecting him. Back in the US, out of her personal concern for Edward, Skinner helps Henry with his misconceptions with his wife. His wife is not a spy. Her roommate in college, Sarah, which Henry has pictures of, was a spy and she was planted to oversee Henry. She was the one he was supposed to fall in love with. However, she tragically died in a real accident and Henry fell in love with his wife due to the surprise of the agency. Henry's wife reveals that Henry has been acting cold to her and it was Edward, that in his own grossly twisted way, helped save their marriage. Henry promises he will pay more attention to his wife. For Edward, luckily, Meredith and Henry were able to provide for him the information about his parents' killers. Nice episode and like it or not, it's the beginning of the end for this show.moreless
