    NICE ABS! (And nice rear view, too)

    I liked the Sam Beckett/Quantum Leap "Oh, Boy!" after he jumped into Zane.

    Of the set, I liked Jack as Fargo best.

    WTH was that white tube floating across the top of the screen in the operation scene? It was in the shot between Allison and Jack favoring Wallace Shawn.

    Weird.

    Now this is what Eureka used to be like. Great ep.

    Agreed, though I've never really thought Eureka was bad. I've enjoyed the entire run.

    But I laughed more during this ep than any recently. :up:

    And they did a great job of using the plot device to further the relationships between characters as well.

    Great episode!

    Watching all the actors trying to be Jack. Colin trying to be the actors was great. I think Zane did the best Jack and Colin did Fargo the best. Allison was trying way too hard.

    It would have been funny if Jack had jumped into Jo, then the line "and I was in Jo and, oh wait...." would have funny.

    Best scene was Zane/jack and Jo in the shower.

    I also liked how they had Fargo show that he is handling his grief. He had a chance to maybe see Holly again and he knew he had to pull the plug to save Jack.

    And I was impressed---muy!---with Allison when she popped out of bed.

    Niall Matter/Zane in the shower was pretty impressive too. Oh my yes.

    Carter and Zane mocking each other's bodies was amusing (although Zane was a bit more, shall we say, plausible).

    I have this image of the cast members amusing themselves between scenes by doing impressions of each other, and a writer seeing it and thinking, "I can work with this!"

    That's exactly what I thought.

    I think Fargo did the best Jack, and I think Jack's Fargo was better than his Zane or his Alison.

    Great episode. Fun premise.

    I didn't notice them give Wallace Shawn any synonym for "inconceivable" like they did the last time he was on.

    I was a little disturbed at Zane continuing to poke fun at Jack's body, as if Jack is some plump doughboy. If Jack's in bad shape, I'd hate to see what he'd say about me. ;)

    Then again, if you'd worked as hard as Zane obviously has to get his body, you'd probably be pretty upset at the extent of the setback... ;)

    And how long it was going to take him to work off that bacon egg scone. ;)

    Yeah, but I think he would have been sadly disappointed. I'm pretty sure the person still connected was Senator Wen.

    I don't know about the story lines, but the scenery has been excellent lately! :D

    I'm thinking that that's what the writers want us to think, and that Zane finding what he thinks to be Holly would have been a tool for Wen to escape, or for even greater heartbreak for Fargo.

    She's back in her Season One shape. They had her traipsing around in underwear like that back then too.

    She was in "Leah Remini" territory for a few of those middle seasons. :D


    Let's say the pattern in the machine was Holly. How were they going to put her mind back into her dead (and somewhat decomposed at this point) body and reanimate it?

    Or are they going to upload her into a Holly-bot? I hope they make her "fully functional". ;)
