  • Interesting parallel plot where the squad gets some brutal anti-interrogation training: Bob bears the brunt of the harsh tactics while wife Kim come in for some religious indoctrination from Molly et al.

    The training camp story is well done, although stretching credibility to the limit. Meanwhile the wives storyline dribbles along unpromisingly: Kim resists only feebly Molly's latest sordid assimilation strategy centred around getting her to rediscover her religious faith. There I was thinking Kim was going to make the nosey cow understand that not everyone is a Christian or even religious, and that that's just fine 'cos it's the land of the free. But no! The episode ends with Kim having started praying again, while I throw the remote at the TV in frustration. Why can't the writers have the courage to have a character who simply doesn't believe in god? Or at least not to ram this stuff down our throats...
