Best Plot & Action Ever
1 August 2014 | by garysteinwegSee all my reviews

Took me two weeks to watch this episode as I'm recording several series on the DVR. Single word review: WOW!!!

This episode is obviously the promo for a related "spin-off" series as all sorts of new people were introduced. Also introduced was all manner of new "technology" and almost non-stop action. The story was very well spun, leaving us/me guessing wrong until the very end.

If there's to be a new series, it's going to be one that I will really want to watch.

If you can somehow find this episode to watch, it's definitely something you'll be glad you did.
