The Sixth Finger
A scientist advances the evolution of a man (David McCallum) by 20,000 years which leads to him being covered in rubber makeup and having no social decorum. This was black and white and blurry. It all began in a Welsh village when Cathy brought bread to the local mad scientist who had a monkey who can file. Cathy liked the reluctant miner Gwyllm who is all dirty and brunette. Cathy took Gwyllm to the mad scientist’s house and so began the over-reach of humanity and the consequences there of. McCallum is hot when all the coal dust is cleaned off him but then he got into a machine and a lever is moved and Gwyllm evolves and the make up is piled on. Gwyllm became borderline sociopathic, the Michael Caine looking mad scientist was useless and could only gawk as Gwyllm played piano. This was dull, limited and ineffective.

Best Lines:
“Your ignorance makes me ill and angry.”

“Where are we going?”

“What wonders or terrors does evolution hold in store?”

“Old and misty valley.”

“Can you do that with people too?”

“If I have to beat it into you.”

“He annoys me terribly.”

“Spreading discontent and acting myself superior.”

“The most backward place in the world.”

“Create the man of the future.”

“Our biological future.”

“Useless like the others.”

“Books about everything!”

“What have I got to sing about?”

“He’s not to be laughed at!”

“Man produces little that is lasting.”

Into The White
Teo’s secret is revealed. Joan breaks into Seth’s house to clean it. Calder (Hill Harper) and his libertarian paranoia bores. Auggie contradicts himself. Calder is a prejudicial moron. Teo is combative. Joan uses fair means and foul to get a job. This was haphazard.

Best Lines:
“Lose his moral compass.”

“Wipe the scene.”

“That’s not relevant.”

“You preyed on her sense of loyalty.”

“Sorry for kicking you.”

“Or something very bad will happen.”

Rock A My Soul
How does Annie afford such pricey shoes? Annie spies on a couple. Are Arthur and Joan divorced or what? Their marriage issues bore and have since season 1. This was not new and fresh. Henry plots. Auggie and Annie are morons and the indisputable point is that this ep sucks. Auggie consistently disappoints. Are we supposed to feel relentlessly sad for him? Cos no. Calder shows up to annoy.

Best Lines:
“You still need a story.”

“Filling out exit paperwork.”

“Too many people know too many things.”

“Your loyal silence.”

“My only child is dead and I didn’t get so much as a sympathy card from you.”

“I blame you for Jai’s death.”

“You can leave now.”

Now Is Not The End
It is 1946 and Peggy is in NY for some reason. She pretends to work at the phone company but works for the SSR (Strategic Scientific Research). Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) is in trouble. Women are expected to get married and stay at home. Peggy chafes against this. There are clips from ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’. Peggy’s co-worker Thompson (Chad Michael Murray of ‘House Of Wax’ and ‘One Tree Hill’) is an ass. But her other co-worker Sousa (Enver Gjokaj of 'Dollhouse') is nice. Peggy also befriends a waitress named Angie (Lyndsey Fonesca of ‘Nikita’).

Peggy looks into who framed Howard Stark and enocunters a mysterious baddie (James Frain). Stark’s butler Jarvis helps Peggy look for weaponized stuff. ‘Fringe’ is knocked off. Something called Leviathan is coming. Also Jarvis and Stark may not be trustworthy. This was okay and already is far better than ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D

Best Lines:
“Is it the shoes?”

“He got his personality shot off.”

“Love the hat.”

“My bad babies.”

“Why invent them at all?”

“You’re not going to like the future, such as it is.”

“The Nazis fed us better than this.”

Bridge and Tunnel
Peggy hates a bad radio show based on her and Captain America. Thompson shows off his sleek haircut. Peggy can’t let her SSR co-workers know she is looking into the Stark case so it’s all a bit season 1 ‘Alias’. Ray Wise pops up as an industrialist. There is mention of Project Rebirth and a confrontation. There is death, a symbol and Thompson gets violent. This was okay.

Best Lines:
“Thrillingly realistic.”

“Oh, don’t be lewd.”

“Get wiggling.”

“What a beautiful day to mend these pants.”

“We’re gonna need a new stick.”

“Nazi scum.”

“That’s suspicious.”

“Proper young ladies.”

“Moral guidance.”
