Just been aired on Sky here (which means free to air next week), so what was the concensus over there?
It certainly got outside the format box, and I wonder whether that was seen as a good thing? Or whether Liotta’s ‘visions’ were thought to be a bridge too far in a ‘science’ based show?
Haven’t searched here as I dont know what episode number it was, and I’m more interested in the long view.
Personally I thought Liotta was awesome, and that it was generous of an ensemble show to give such an opportunity.
Your assessment is far kinder than mine. I found it plodding and relentlessly pessimistic. Ray’s performance was fine, given the material, but juxtaposed with the numbingly heavy mood of even the visions I just found it… serious but uncompelling.
I don’t watch the show anymore, but NBC was certainly stumping the episode really hard.
Then again, they stump every episode really hard: “Tune In for the Most Amazing, Totally Incredible, UnFuckingBelievable Twisteroni Shockeroo that the ER has Ever Experienced Ever!
