Re: EpDis: Passing Through Gethsemane

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.
