This episode did reinforce my opinion that the transparent future displays that people think are cool, really suck for legibility! I was trying to read some of the screens and it was very difficult. I don't see the attraction of having displays you can see the background through for everyday use. My eyes don't need any further strain.
I liked this episode, wasnt "outstanding" but enjoyable. It moved the story along and started to bring more of the outside world into view. The people we saw today remind me of a character(s) we saw in a previous season.
As for the shoutout to SA, this show has always done this for classic Sci-FI movies\shows as well as past JJ shows......I think it was the 1st season where the license plate was R2D2........They had an episode from X-Files on the TV on an episode which was basically a dedication to it......Lets not forget the reference to Lost last episode with the hatch as well
Looks like you have a case of the old grumpy magoos
its different seeing the displays in person than it is via being filmed. Not to mention that the writing was not done too legibly, so that would ahve added to the difficulty seeing what was written. You are not alway supposed to see whats there and in this case I believe you feel pray to looking for detail when there was none to see. The screens will probably be easier to read when the Blu-ray comes out
After hearing an interview with Joshua Jackson before the premiere of Season 5...I put it into spoilers just in case
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The next episode will be the end of book 1, beginning of Book 2 for the final 13...Makes things very interesting to see what will happen IMO
