    How Doe’s Doin’.
    Well, this week he was presented with a unique situation where he didn’t quite feel comfortable. Duh. A woman and her 10 year old son came knocking on the door and the adventure began. Doe’s job: prove that the son is not his by use of paternity tests. Of course there was a secret plot in the conception of the child, because nothing in John’s life can be simple.

    Project Auto, ten years ago, was to create a race of super-humans. Although they didn’t kill any Jews or try to conquer Europe the writers still attempted to make this an evil plot of some sort, rather than an innocent experiment. (digression) The scientists must have watched the move Twins and though creating a super-human was a good idea. The movie didn’t make the scientists look evil, but for some reason this show didn’t make light of the idea.

    There was a backlash by one of the project participants who went on a killing spree, picking off each of the sperm donors one-by-one and stealing their brains. Doe, of course, gets involved just as this psycho killer begins his task.

    John finds most of the doners, some alive, some brainless. The living dads get the willies and move into John’s apartment. (Insert intellectual banter here) (then laugh track)

    With the help of his buddy cop, 3 smart dads, 1 smart mom and the super-human child John finds the killer but.. oops, he’s got a hostage. Ooops, it’s the super-child. Buddy cop has to kill the bad guy who’s got all the answers.

    Later on in the bar we find out who the real father is. It’s the cool biker guy. Wouldn’t it be neat if these super smart farts became the Lone Gunman of this show?

    But wait! We’re left with a “who is Doe” teaser at the end. It’s the old lady and she’s just gotten a package from the shanty town governor from the previous show! How’s that work?!

    Next week: John is presented with a crime and must use his super intellect to solve it.

      I would like to correct something… its Project Otto, as in the Italian word for eight.

      I hope they do. I loved the interaction between them. The group scenes in which they work things out in conversation are a much more natural form of exposition than this show sometimes has to resort to.

    Plot hole
    Interesting note, there were 7 sperm donors and one egg donor….

    So why did no one mention that the egg donor is more than likely the boys real mother as well and that his birth mother was probably just a surrogate? Otherwise, why was the other woman even in the story as being part of Project Otto in the first place? Geez

      Eh, its probably one of those unsaid things because everyone thought it was obvious. Even I thought it was obvious, and I can be quite dense at times.

    “The Doe Gunmen”
    I guess John Doe has his Lone Gunmen. Although these guys were much more like the Geneticlly enhanced misfits on ST: DS9
