    EPISODE 3.6
    PHASED AND CONFUSED

    Synopsis: Jack keeps having to rescue his sister Lexi from a bumbling superhero.

    LIKED.....
    I would say I liked most of this episode, but it had one of the most hilariously poor or bad..... those are really too negative. It wasn't really negative so much as a hilarious copout.

    DIDN'T LIKE.....

    Once again we get a giant facility under Eureka. Come on this is dumb. And what I mentioned above. Jack you can't start using discarded phasing technology because the technology was abandoned because people died when the effect couldn't be reversed. Cut to Jack is dying and a magic cure because apparently saving his life motivated them to find a cure while those other folks were just not worth trying hard enough.


    That has to be one of the most hilarious copout endings I've ever seen in a show. It was such a copout they seem to literally point at themselves as being a copout.

    Episode is okay by me. Not my favorite, but it had its moments.

      EPISODE 3.7
      HERE COME THE SUNS

      IMDB Synopsis: The appearance of a second sun makes election week in Eureka a little more intense, and gives Eva Thorne an opening that may mean the end of Global Dynamics.

      I haven't done one in awhile so here is a B5 Guest Star sighting.....
      DEAN MARSHALL - Malcolm Bridges from BABYLON 5: THE LEGEND OF THE RANGERS: TO LIVE AND DIE IN STARLIGHT (2002)

      LIKED.....
      Seeing Dean Marshall make an appearance. I like the tension with Eva Thorne (Frances Fisher). I liked the election stuff, in particular I found Vincent's role to be subdued but humorous. They should have played with his part just a little more. REALLY liked Henry's reaction at the end.

      DIDN'T LIKE.....
      I can't say there was much I didn't like.

      Here is something that I thought would be bad and then it wasn't.

      So Degree Antiperspirant became a sponsor of the show. They played this in with the introduction of Eva Thorne (Frances Fisher) coming in to make Global Dynamics a profitable entity. So sporadically through episodes you will see a Degree Antiperspirant in a medicine cabinet or sitting on a sink. Occasionally they will show a poster or things around Global Dynamics. All very obvious, but not too intrusive - until this episode, but not a problem. In this episode one of the Antiperspirants shows up in the middle of a shot in someone's work station. Not something impossible to happen, but in this instance WAY too obvious. So I thought it was going to be ridiculously all over the episode, BUT in an episode with a second sun I was shocked Degree didn't end up in every scene. LOL

      So I enjoyed this one. 6 out of 10. I know I haven't really used a numbering system, but I felt like it this time.

        EPISODE 3.8
        FROM FEAR TO ETERNITY

        IMDB Synopsis: All of Eva Thorne's secrets are revealed when she pushes for early destruction of the bunker. Zoe begins to experience the effect of the substance in which she slipped, leaving Carter to risk his life and job in order to save her.

        LIKED.....
        Hmmmm I would say I liked most of the episode.

        DIDN'T LIKE......
        I can't think of anything other than the huge spoiler......
        that this was Frances Fisher's last episode. I thought she added an interesting dynamic, though I also felt like she has overshadowed Salli Richardson-Whitfield all season. It really seems like after the whole Nathan Stark affair at the beginning of the season she has been a non-entity for me. I don't know. Could just be me.

        I guess if I was going to say there is one negative it would be that Fisher left. And if there were one pointless gesture it is that Carter was fired. I love that something like that happened, because something like that would have to happen, but it also seems pointless - especially since I know the next episode is called WELCOME BACK, CARTER.


        All and all a good episode, but the ending was a bit contrived and had no weight to it because I know the show isn't over. 😁

          EPISODE 3.9
          WELCOME BACK, CARTER

          IMDB Synopsis - Sheriff Carter interviews for a new job, Zoe braces herself for change.

          LIKED.....
          Very contrived, but still an entertaining episode.

          DIDN'T LIKE.....
          SHERIFF ANDY was a bit too much.
          - I mean the technology used. He was more life like than Data. Thankfully Ty Olsson is an entertaining actor.

          All and all the last two episode were entertaining, but as far as Carter leaving and coming back they weren't really at that level.


          Guest Star Ty Olsson made this one worth while.

            EPISODE 3.10
            YOUR FACE OR MINE

            IMDB Synopsis: Jo displays atypical behavior after a DNA scan malfunctions, unfortunately it's while she's interim sheriff when Carter is required to undergo a 48-hour DOD recertification test.

            LIKED.....
            So Colin Ferguson directed this one. Usually one might assume this would be the week Carter was off, but not for this Director. I was surprised how much he was in it. Decent enough episode.

            DIDN'T LIKE.....
            I can't think of anything I didn't really care for other than the base things that have always been around that I don't really care for...... Zane.

            Highly predictable episode, but I liked the episode focus on Jo. 👍

              EPISODE 3.11
              INSANE IN THE P-BRANE

              IMDB Synopsis: Carter finds out more than he bargained for when he's trapped in an alternate dimension.

              LIKED.....
              I'll just say that this was a fairly middle of the road episode for me. I enjoyed some of it.

              DIDN'T LIKE.....
              Not really sure what the whole point of Ever Caradine's character has been. Overall I really have found her to be unnecessary and I'm wondering what the original intent of adding her was meant to do because it really hasn't done much for overall scheme of things.

              Wasn't much of a fan of them introducing another character to serve as romantic tension. Also I'm not sure I can take much more of Episode after Episode threatening the entire world. I see no reason they needed to escalate this problem to that level. Even threatening the whole town wasn't necessary. Come on! Eventually with town and World being threatened with destruction because of issues coming out of Eureka someone would eventually pull the plug and say that these projects shouldn't be done in such close proximity. ....
