  • I wanted to like it. I really did. It didn't happen.

    3.1
    The elaborate set up of part one was utterly wasted in this episode - one that ended in an absurd shot out at a TV station. Then we're left with the depressing revelation that the doctor who had been hiding in Costa Rica wasn't in fact the Jack of all Trades. Sure he's a bad guy and we're glad he's been caught he's just not the bad guy we wanted caught.



    Summing up this episode: Ham handed.



    Part one wasn't perfect but it was strong and subtle, a smart series of scenes and moves that got the various plot pieces into place with a minimum of fuss. This episode was ham handed on al fronts. When this episode first aired, it seemed like a simple misfire - from the distance of time, it seems more a matter of having no clear idea what to do with the pieces from part one. They didn't misuse them since they had no clear idea what they wanted to do in the first place. Having set things in motion they had to resolve them. And rather than follow the mood and intent of episode one, producers were caught up in a rapid get the resolution quick mood.



    Nice visuals and some not so subtle commentary about parenting but otherwise an episode that should have been so much more and ended up being so much less.moreless
