I don’t have a whole lot to say except that I really liked this episode. I like when shows do this: go completely out into the woods (literally) with just a couple of the characters, and get out of the one-location rut.
Question about the geopolitical background of the story. The action seemed to take place in the DRC (Democratic Republic of Congo, formerly Zaire). Who are the Mayi-Mayi? (Mahi-Mahi? Ma’i Ma’i?) Are they a real rebel faction? Because if not, it seemed like the political situation in Congo was really dumbed down for this show. I mean, I guess you have to do that, but it still smacked of oversimplification. [Tongue_in_cheek]The backwoods rebels: the silly fools think the West is stealing all of Africa’s resources, and that’s why they’re shooting everyone they find, even the international doctors.[/Tongue_in_cheek].
