Sci-Fi Fridays returns with a bang and a multitude of reminiscent conspiracy entertainment we saw in all those thriller genre films from the nineties and eighties. I kept imagining Sandra Bullock or Mel Gibson to pop up from a barrel and bite someone's head off. No, like literally, Sandra Bullock needs to come out of a barrel in a speeding bus and just bite someone's head off. That's my critique for fox.
So what happened this week in three sentences? The Connor's took a road trip to Sarah's old flame who's now living in a white house just waiting to get shot and killed by a janitor at the end of the episode. Derek learns he and former beau lost a fetus from Cameron who saves his human ass (boy can she turn a gay man straight) from a few more janitors. John Henry came one more episode closer to killing the crap out of Savanna Weaver (here's to hoping) while revealing to us that he has an angry vengeful brother hell bent on slowing down the internet and stealing the world's bandwith in an evil plot to kill the internet...not really. BTW, did I mention Sarah got a bat tracer stuck in her left boob? Cause she did.
I began liking Derek finally when we came back from hiatus into Sarah's little trilogy of "Oh hey guys, the show is about me remember?" Though the writer's made him intentionally retarded this episode (Seriously Derek? You're going to go check out the mystery van while Cameron the super strength robot changes the tire? Derek seriously?). And why is it that he thinks he can grab the robot's wrist in hopes that he will seem intimidating and threatening?
Charley Dixon: B+
It was a cheap ending to a half endearing character. Not too sad about his departure, but it was expected. I was hoping that after they killed his wife, they would keep him around as a symbol of the show's population that isn't hands off for the robots. Which I guess the writers proved.
Weaver, Ellison, Henry: A+
These characters in John Henry's cavern revealing that a super computer feels a slow and painful millenia of death when you hit the off button was short of a perfect painting. This was indeed the best acting from this fraction of the cast thus far. The revelation of John Henry's brother is enticing enough to bite at. I'm still looking forward to Weaver facing off with Henry or Cameron.
What can I say? The kid doesn't do much. He's cute but he sometimes he'd be better off eating applesauce on screen for five minutes. The best line he had this episode is, "I took his seat? *laughs*".
CamBot was back to form this episode. They gave us a full body shot of her running. I'd tap that gun toting hotty with a philips and a monkey wrench. i was actually fearful for her motherboard when she got zapped as I'm sure you were too, but her reboot was something I was waiting for.
What is it with this woman and hospitals? What is it with this woman and injury? And super fast healing for that matter? I think in the last few weeks she's suffered a gunshot wound, lascerations to the wrists, concussions, and now she's been zapped to high hell. Anyone feel the need to call child protective services? Oh wait, Jesse already did. We all know what happened to her. She lost her duffel bag. Mmhmm. What's interesting about Sarah this week is that Lena Heddy actually looked like she could make it outside of Terminator if the show gets cancelled or has a its series finale eventually.
When is the season finale? Anyone know? Was that it? Gawd damn it. It better not've been.
And in the end, all we have is bread. Oh yeah, John's missing. *eats bread*.
