  • A very moving episode with all the right elements - family and friends close and willing to risk all to help a brother/friend.

    An excellent episode with the right mix of everything - family, friends and another world. Brilliant acting from 'Rodney' as he devolved into a second childhood, touching moments with his sister (who he has always been so competetive with). Overall this episode showed the value of friendship and how much real friends will sacrifice for a friend in need. The present and the past were brilliantly handled with taped messages (full of sensitivity). The special place where the victims of 'second childhod' were afforded one final day of clarity was both visually and creatively inspired. The end (while predictible in order to save a central character) was inspired. After my criticism of the 5th season I was delighted that this was on the mark.
