Harm’s Way originally aired on January 14,
Harmony’s feelings of rejection are somewhat allayed
by finding a man
in a bar.
Harmony’s last line.
A right biter? You’d think they’d all learn to go
for the juggular.
This is a new plotline for this series, even if it
has shown up on
other shows. It still scores well for
none of the other shows with this plot have been
quite this comedic.
(Apart from The Trouble With Harry, I can’t
think of anything
similar, and even that had distinct differences.) I
give it 5 out of
The effects were mostly stunts and vamping
out this week,
apart from the single battle scene. Once again, the
effects were well
done, if unoriginal. I give it 5 out of 6.
The story, apart from that one piece of
doesn’t sit quite right with me, was well done.
Well, that and the
complete lack of remaining evidence at the end. I
give it 4 out of
The acting from Mercedes McNab was better
than it usually is,
and David Boreanaz (not to mention his more capable
castmates) was a
very minor character. I give it 5 out of 6.
The emotional response this produced was
usually good. I’d
have preferred to have had enough information to
actually solve the
puzzle, rather than have the solution handed to us.
I give it 4 out
The production was Mutant Enemy. What else
needs said? I
give it 5 out of 6.
Overall, it’s a nice episode, but I was
hoping the first
episode back from the break would have more to do
with the end of the
last episode before the break than this one did. I
give it 4 out of
In total, Harm’s Way receives 32 out of 42.
