    Considering this was a 20 minute episode series, there really isn't much character development shown outside our cast(Lana, Superboy, Andy, etc), so whenever a new character is introduced its rare to have a fully developed character. Luckily the new character is played by the same character actor from Bordello of Blood, who isn't half bad. The episode is not the best and it certainly hearkens back to many of the eek episodes of the first season, but its still watchable. The look of the episode starts off light, like most of the series tended to go by but as they are trapped on the island it begins to get darker, definitely a tension builder in the 80's for a child, now it would be laughable. The fight sequence itself is also quite laughable, but only due to the choreography. Still worth a watchmoreless
