Ok, the show is getting a little better. They give us another colony location and this time it's a cool room called The Eye. It's a library of sorts and Jim has taken youngest daughter, Zoe, there. One of the colony's teen boys thinks he's been hungover for a few days and is convinced to go to the clinic to get checked out. Dr. Shannon finds that instead he's got a (roughly) 30 ft. parasite inside of him. Ew. But still kinda cool. And lastly there's a meteor headed their way. When it hits it sends a sonic wave right to the colony which, kinda looks fun until it knocks out their electronics. Wouldn't you hate to be the kid with the parasite now?
Oh and I almost forgot that the Shannon's elder daughter (I should really learn the teen kids names but I can't be bothered) is off on a romantic nature hike with the cute soldier boy. He takes her to a field and I'm having Twilight flashes:
|If he starts to sparkle I'm so outta here|
|Yep, I'd be making that face too.|
Jim Shannon and daughter Zoe are locked in the Eye room since all the electronics were knocked out by the sonic wave. Zoe is adorable and one of the few child actors who doesn't annoy me. Jim figures out that there's an access route under the floor which would get them to the other side of the door where they could open it manually. Unfortunately the access is pretty small and just the right size for a child of Zoe's size. Zoe wants to help but is hesitant because of spiders. Girl after my own heart. Jim makes up the spider song which works and keeps the spiders away while Zoe crawls around. He loses track of her and panics only to have her let him out of the room. She rocks.
|An old-school firewall. Neat.|
So are you still watching? Do you think the show is getting better? Did you like the big dino? How 'bout that parasite? Am I asking too many questions?
