Premise

Kiera deals with another apparent time-traveller as the team investigates a high-energy, high-tech thief. As Kiera and Alec drift farther apart, she and Carlos grow closer to Liber8 while Alec strikes a deal with Kellog.

High Points

Our first scene with the high-tech theft gives this show a boost of visceral excitement and energy.

Low Point

While the acting is generally good, the tensions this week between Alec and Kiera feel very staged and televisional.

The Scores:

Originality: 4/6

Effects: 5/6

Acting: 4/6

Story: 5/6 This a good episode, but its parts felt disconnected.

Emotional Response: 4/6 Is it cheesy, clever, or fortuitous that they’ve named the security company Gray Point? Once the detectives arrive here, they definitely no longer see their world in black and white.

Production: 6/6

Overall: 4/6 Alec probes deep to remain on the cutting edge of technology.

In total, “Minute of Silence” receives 32/42
