So, this was the episode that I had been anticipating after a 7-month-long hiatus. Umm, what? I can remember being disappointed. First, the episode throws you into the action, and it took me a good ten minutes to figure out what was going on. Then, it seems to be really random with the robbers showing up. And the monkey/hyena hybrid robbers are super annoying! During the original series run, after this episode my viewing became kind of spotty. Although, I'm not sure why I didn't make "Why so difficult?!" my favorite phrase immediately.

Anyway, on my first re-watch last year, I was still not overly excited about this episode, but I can appreciate its strengths, now. The interaction between Scorpius and Rygel is great, and of course the physical comedy of the linked Braca and D'Argo, too. It is yet another example of Moya's crew being in the wrong place at the wrong time and everything getting frelled up. And, it sets up the next set of episodes, which are epic!
