Gotta agree, Creeper. Some f@%ked up shite here. Never trust a pilot who approaches the plane with his helmet on and his visor down.

9!

Now this one I really dig.
Its just solid all the way around, and fast paced and interesting.


There is but one reason I can't give it a 10.
The ending. :(
I think the ending is great don't get me wrong, but it was never fully explained.

So everyone left the Village just to trick number 6??????
They let him go for weeks, only to toy with him and bring him back?

OK, lets say he got away, and they eventually got him back, and "brought him home". Fair enough.
If thats the case, why did everyone suddenly "disappear" at the beginning of the episode, and the regular functions (like running water) just stop for no reason?

I personally think this may be the best episode of the series I have seen so far, but I am slightly pissed at the ending and lack of explanation.


Strong 9 here.

Indeed. Back-to-back strong episodes. This goes high on my list as well. Number 6 actually escapes, or so he thinks. We actually see him in 'the real world', but yes, the ending was damn fun.

9!
