The Doucet breakdown is golden - "Not only is Gavin Fox the sweetest, gentlest goddam delight of a human; his biceps are like pythons that just swallowed a litter of piglets......Michelle noticed the chemistry between them in Episode 202 right away. Gared just kept trying to get Pree to notice him. He stole his bar, fought his best friend, tried to rob Pree’s other bestie, hobbled in on crutches waving a knife… Poor boy just didn’t know how to ask a guy out. I mean, we’ve all been there, right? Pree IS intimidating. How do you ask a sexy hurricane like that to the movies?"

This is such a fun show. The quips, the relationships, the nerve gas (presumably in a tooth), just, everything. The stakes do feel a little lower since this is all setup for the war. Till we get there, it's all a little Monster of the Week.

Well, and I'm sort of waiting to see how they transition from a lighthearted monster of the week plotting (which it always sort of has been) to a "hey we're fighting a city sized ship, this is nuts!" that they're headed towards. On the one hand, it'll feel cheap if they pull a "hey we can just poison the goo again!" like they did with the Khlyen Hullen, on the other hand it'd be a huge tonal shift to get onto a war footing. I'm interested to see how they do it.

I did like the whole heart-to-heart with Dutch and Johnny in the cargo container while the story kept moving along, so it wasn't the death of the show's momentum to have Johnny bitch at Dutch about her holding him back.

Zeph is slowly growing on me.
