  • Mixed feelings about this one...

    This one is an odd episode. On one hand the writers are clearly trying to push the boundries of the show and it does not follow the ussual formula. On the other hand the plot is strained, nonsensical and at times badly written. The episode is clearly a refrence to how black people were treated in America during the last century which is a bit obvious and not brilliantly handled in my opinion. I applaud them for having tried it though which is why I've given the episode a good mark, however I would be lieing if I said this was a favourite. On the plus side the Blind ape and her relationship with the humans is well handled and a highlight.moreless
