A very, very good episode undone, a bit, by an annoying character.
25 June 2010 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is a very good episode as the basic story idea was wonderful. Unfortunately, the main character is so darn annoying that it did detract, a bit, from the episode overall.

Bunny Blake is a very talented but incredibly superficial and annoying star. It's obvious she must be a bit star but behaves in a way that rubs me and everyone else wrong! She is every bit the self-centered and self-possessed celebrity--and this ego-centrism is a problem for the episode. This is not just because it's annoying but that in the show has be doing something rather selfless at the end--something that just doesn't seem to fit. If you can ignore this, the rest is gold.

Bunny begins to behave very strangely. When she looks into her ring, she begins to see things--but exactly these images are is uncertain. She is going to be returning to her old home town but once there she STILL sees things in her ring and has fainting spells. What happens next I can't really say, as it is bound to ruin the nice surprise twist.

The bottom line is despite an annoying character, what happens in the small town is pretty incredible--and just the sort of thing this series did best. See this one...and just ignore Bunny's histrionics.
