Reviewer : Indefatigable Rating : 2
Review : Another 'issue' episode, this time attempting to tackle the death penalty. In some ways, the Nygean justice system is exactly what some people want, which might well be the worst thing about it from other points of view. Other than that, there did not seem to be much to it, although I am not sure why. Jeff Kober put in a half-decent performance, and his speech at the end was the best point of the episode. I half-expected the family to commute his sentence to life imprisonment, even though I think that is worse than death. There were a few other nice touches, the Doctor and Seven discussing the death penalty early on, a balance between her 'efficient solution' and his 'life first' beliefs. Her turnaround was fairly interesting, but expected. However, much of the episode seemed to be a fairly superficial discussion on the death penalty and guilt (and obviously repentance). Nothing really outstanding. Incidentally, the pineal gland doesn't have any direct effect on conscience in Humans, although it does control sleeping patterns (disturbed sleep can make people bad-tempered). Still, maybe Nygeans are wired differently, and I'm not a xenobiologist (obviously).
