Let’s face it, the first group of episodes weren’t exactly barn-burners. But last night, we got new characters, chills and…
Morena Baccarin’s Anna might well be the hottest character currently flashing — last night, literally — across our screens. Never has impassionate coupling been so intense. And talk about a lesson in the consequences of mating before marriage!
Fans of the original series will never forget the moment Jane Badler’s Diana unhinged her jaw to swallow a mouse. So when Valerie eyed the dead rodent with a look that said, “You know, I could go for a little nosh,” we couldn’t look away… no matter how badly we wanted to!
Throwing Charles Mesure’s Hobbes into the mix not only gave the resistance a literal fighting chance, but, unless we miss our mark, set up a fantastic little triangle with good (hunky Father Jack) and evil-or-at-least-morally-corruptable-for-cash (Hobbes) duking it out for the affections of Erica.
The Mother Of All Battle Build-Ups
Sure, it’s a little odd that the fate of the entire planet seems to have come down to Anna and Erica, but let’s face it: We haven’t looked forward to an inevitable girl-on-girl showdown so much since Ripley took on the queen in Aliens.
