Is it me, or was the construction orange jumpsuit near the beginning a recycled deck gang jumpsuit from BSG?
edit; and now that I'm done the episode....
Keegan Connor Tracy! Fell in love when she first showed up on BSG, and no less so now.... *drool* And she was hilarious to boot
The talking statues were creepy as hell, and then the stone Dr. Zimmer in the jail cell really really reminded me of the Weeping Angels in Doctor Who. And then the little Doctor Who reference shortly afterward was a nice touch too
I'm really, really frelling sick of the Carter/Allison 'ship though. Jesus. It's been over since the end of season 1, LET IT GO. I'm also really starting to be bothered by the lack of duplicates in the alternate timeline.... They travelled back in time and caused a divergent timeline, their return to the present should've posed even more problems because there should be alternate timeline versions of themselves already there since the alt-timeline versions of themselves never went back in time.
Goofy ass Henry ending too lol. I kept expecting a cameo from Bill Nye.
But WAHOO BEVERLY! And great preview for next week too

Here's a thought.... If Kevin was never autistic in this episode, maybe he never absorbed the energy of The Artifact, and Beverly's group has it somehow.
Pretty good episode. I love me some Zoe, I love me some Carter/Allison (I've learnt that the writers want it, and we can't stop it. Might as well just ROLL WITH IT... I still miss Tess though. ), I love Henry actually getting a measure of happiness and I especially love that Jo's getting tortured this year. It's fun!
And Beverly's back. Awesome. Awesome to the max.
~ When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade. Make life take back the lemons back! Get mad! I don't want your damn lemons! What am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life's manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! WITH THE LEMONS! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that BURNS YOUR HOUSE DOWN! ~
~ Burning people! He says what we're all thinking! ~
When Zoe bumped into Zane at the start of the episode I think it was pretty clear the 'mystery man' was Zane.
I hope Jo gets back with Zane some how, the two actors work really well together.
It feels good to have Beverly back, I wonder how they're going to play it. Why is she in accounting? Maybe the Consortium is back too and they have puppets everywhere? I'm looking forward to this part of the story line.
As for the episode itself, I think it was pretty slow, I was fairly disinterested at the start. I don't think they wrote the perm part well. Everything else was interesting though.
The Henry + Grace part was quite funny Do you think that was Fargo's idea?
And an episode without Sarah is weird.
Love love loved the end with Henry/Grace, them singing and dancing to "She Blinded Me with Science"
Loved Zane offering to look up the TARDIS blueprints! Total geekout moment there for 3/5 our household.
Jo angst! Just when we think they might slowly bring Jo and Zane back together something else interrupts them.
The whole Zane/Zoe thing? (wow is that weird to type) I'll be ok with it if it lasts like 2 - 3 episodes with one or the other realizing it is just a crush and they never speak of it again.
Beverly will be awesome! It'll be interesting to see how all of that plays out.
I thought the episode was awesome--and yeah! Allison and Carter! And I feel so bad for Jo. And the Henry and Grace thing is really fun to watch. She's awesome!
And the stone people reminded me of Dr. Who Crying Angels, too. Although the Who ones are completely bone chilling and I can't watch them. ***shivers***
But I'm liking this AU thing--I think it's a great take on things. And who says that the bridge device didn't suddenly transfer the dupes to the original time line? I'm not having a problem with that.
Carter and everyone from alternate timeline with know Beverly is bad even if she hasn't been outed in this storyline yet, but will she blackmail them? Will Grant work with her to get back at Jack for getting the girl? I liked this episode!
I still don't really know what to make of this new direction. I hope they find a way to get the timeline back on track. I did like Carter in this ep, his expressions were pretty much mirroring my own half the time But I do wish they would put this whole Carter/Allison thing to bed now. I mean we haven't got anything with Carter/Allison for the last two seasons and then it's all back on at the beginning of this season? I thought he was over it Either get them together for real or just leave it well enough alone. Just do something instead of this they have the hots for each other/no they don't/yes they do scenario. They should have kept Tess, I liked her And Tess and Carter go well together.
Oh and Jo is really getting put through the ringer this season Poor Jo But isn't the angst great
And the comment..."Your house is getting more action than either of us" That is just so wrong
