Well this would certainly take care of our education problems, Speed Learn. I was hoping for more of a Manchurian candidate type episode, it wasn't, but it was still strong and posed the age old question that no one - even the general - can quite come to terms with.

Colin Gordon returns as #2. Eh, something too Mr. Rodgers about him. I'm a big fan of passive assertion but - damn - this guy takes it to a new level. Could have been a stronger episode with a different #2.

Fun watch nicely paced.

7!

Not one of the better episodes, in my opinion, but decent. I gave it a 7.

Make that three ratings of seven for this one. It's good, but not great. It's about to get much better though. ;)

A 7 from me as well. Although in this series, there is no such number....
