The writing is great, in my opinion. The characters are all believeable. And the moment of revulsion at the end: perfection.

Talk about making your point clear and yet personal, you know?

Nicely said, Hypatia. I agree competely!

Right, I forgot about Sheridan's trouble shaking hands at the end.

I personally enjoyed Lyta's small part in this episode. I seem to enjoy pretty much every time she useds her powers for good in a shady kind of way.

C! ;)

I voted C because I don't much care for the whole Brother Edward story.

D, I truly can't stand this episode.

I had no idea Brad Douriff could act until this episode. ?


Gee, I can't let that pass. :p

Brad is one of my favorite actors. He doesn't always get the best roles, but when he does, he's great. He was nominated for an Academy Award for playing Billy in One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, and he does a great job in John Huston's Wise Blood. Those are two of his best. I'd put PTG up there as well.

Then he goes and shaves his eyebrows off and becomes incredibly slimy and evil. The man's pretty impressive.

I rated it "Good". Excellent concept, shaky execution. Brad Douruff is excellent but, as I've said before, it troubles me to see Douriff almost always typecast as a psycho. You may recall that Douriff also played Ensign Suter, the homicidal Betazoid (who eventually redeems himself) on Star Trek Voyager.

JMS often speaks of the pitfalls of typecasting, but in this instance he fell right into it. Yes, the scene between Theo and Edward near the end is heartbreaking; very good stuff, but the end of the ep is a little to clean, too convenient, too Twilight Zone-ish.

YES, Joe, we get the moral. ;)

Yeah, he certainly played one in Lord of the Rings. :lol:

Well, is "Gethsemane" really typecasting for Dourif? Sure, he played a psychotic killer in it -- but he also played someone struggling for understanding and redemption. A little more interesting. And he sounds like such a gentle soul in the LotR interviews.

He was the gentlest of souls as Billy, in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. His new personality in PTG was also very gentle.
