I liked it perhaps because of this.
-I liked the whole John is in my head thing, and even though it gets old that every episode is about something he worked on at some time, I looooved the Walter moments, especially during his more domestic episodes:
- “Tell Olivia to come home I know how to find him.”(Referring to the Harvard lab.)
- Concern over his son’s health.
- Follow-up on his mental state, and how hard it is for him not to be able to access all of his brain-data.
- On Astrid’s name: “It starts with an A…”
6… Home pasteurizing.
-I find that I like Josh Jackson more the crappier he looks and the less I see him. Keep this up, and I may cross into 'shipperdom, because I can’t help but think of John as Jack from Another World.
-Another Massive Dynamic-free ep! Hooray!
Best one yet for me so far. My favorite series are always the ones that are character-driven, and I’m happy to see Olivia branching out some emotionally, a vulnerable Peter, a Walter who can be both infantile and wise, sane and insane, and even token minority Astrid having a chance at a smart-aleck quip at Walter’s expense.
