How did this pass for an episode?

Unless they had some kind of writer's strike in the UK as well, I dont' understand how this episode turned out so god-awful. Everything progressed way to quickly, the stakes really didn't seem that high, the moment between Tosh and Owen is lovely though there is no real build to what happens, an the guy who plays Gray is terrible. He looks like a friend of the directer who just needed a role in a show and threw him in with no acting notes.


And Owen being un-dead for half a season just to (not spoiling anything at this point) go out like he did is crap. He should have had a more signifficant purpose for his condition, or else what was point?


This story seemd to have been really neglected and didn't have enough time spent on it to make it seem like THE SEASON FINALE. I dont' see how it passed as an episode.

lol yeah Gray was pretty bad, but the rest of the episode I didn't mind. It made me cry.. :((
Well.. if you want to know about the 2 characters dying, and if they really did die, you could go read a few spoilers for next season :)
I suppose that if you compare this to let's say Dr Who.. it did seem a bit rushed. I think we're used to 2 or 3-parter finales.

I thought this episode was really good. (Besides the actor that played Grey) It was very unpredictable. I thought that John Barrowman acted very well in this episode, as did Naoko Mori. It did seem a little rushed, but I thought it was a terribly good way to end the season.

Cytem, I am right with you. This episode was awful. The guy who played Grey was terrible and the whole thing seemed to be nothing but blood, hugs, and crying with corny music in the background. Not at all up to Dr. Who standards. Also, nuclear reactors have redundant backup systems and the idea of a power failure causing a melt down doesn't make a lot of sense because the reactor creates power.

Yeah, I thought it was pretty terrible. I found that Gray's motives were poor to be attacking a whole country just to revenge his brother (WTF?), and it was made too easy to forget just how dangerous the circumstances were.However, all the non-Gray characters were excellent, and I totally disagree about Owen being 'wasted'.
