  • Humour and Heartbreak dominate in "Family Values."

    9.5
    The con-men that Dante and Luc capture on Mars are a fantastic set of clowns. But the fun times come to a screeching halt when a Raider ship attacks the group. Heartbreak weighs heavy in this episode. We are shown the pain that Dante feels as he continues to hang onto is dead wife through painful trips to a virtual world where her essence still remains, but is degrading. Over and over again she begs him to find their son. It's effect on Dante is maddening. When Dante finds the Raider boy, the audience knows it is not his son, yet we sympathize with his irrational need for him to be Travis. We know that if Dante ever finds his son, he will be a stranger. However, as Dante takes the boy home to his parents, we are shown a glimmer of hope as the boy looks forward to meeting his family and turns to Dante for strength. It shows that living among the Raiders has not destroyed the boy's ability to connect.moreless
