  • If you go down to the woods today you're in for a big surprise...

    8.4 it's not the teddy bears having their picnic, it's every young person from Roswell sharing the pain of not only camping in a forest, but having to do so with their fathers.

    Something's going on - there are several reported sightings of UFO activity near to Roswell and Max, Isabel and Michael know they have to find out whether it's something real to them or not. The perfect cover comes in the guise of a father/offspring communion in the woods.

    This is kind of a contrived episode but with lots of good stuff. I would have thought that if there was a sighting, given Roswell's reputation for government cover-ups, that nobody would be able to get even within 3 miles of the site, and that the actual site would be crawling with people.

    The orbs make an entrance here, and Michael as usual manages to be in the wrong again for the right reasons.

    It's not quite clear either whether Michael has developed healing powers, or whether because it's a broken bone he can manipulate it like he does other stuff.

    A reasonable episode - and Maria's aqua bra is a highlight, especially when in the woods it's turned into an ice bra!
