  • An excellent episode. It has aliens, bounty hunters and a myth-arc, what's not to love?

    A great episode! I was starting to get a little sick of the mix of simple soap opera drama and monster of the week fare. Finally a story that I was not only pulled into, but left waiting for the conclusion. There has been some talk that this is just a rip off of The Terminator and I agree that there certainly are similarities, but my point here is not to press the point but to point out the irony(?) that the bounty hunter (Brian Thompson) was actually in that movie! He is killed by Arnold for his clothes. Anyways, I digress, an excellent episode and I'm cueing up the conclusion as I type this review! A must watch for fans of the series and fans of the genre in general.
