It’s a risky move to have the protagonist of a series like this change their personality week to week. It’s something that Dollhouse tried before, with mixed results. This episode proved that the series can make these new traits work without making Liv herself inconsequential.

Just as Philip K. Dick used his Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? to explore those qualities that make us human, The Americans uses its own ‘Electric Sheep’ to explore the quality of empathy in the world of spies: specifically, the potential dangers of too much empathy versus the danger of not enough.

Cinderella has always been a favorite. I loved the 1950s version when I was a kid, I loved every reimagination of it since and I couldn't help but love this movie too.

Barry Allen’s first stumble through time turns into a colossal sequence of errors which results in not one but three killer criminals on the loose in Central City. This sequel to last week’s cliffhanger is a stomach-wrencher in the best of all possible ways, and the show's time-reset rocks in a well-structured way with a few surprises.
This was an incredibly dense episode, which is not necessarily a bad thing. And there was a big blurring of factions. Who is on whose side? I don't even know at this point whose side Dillon is on. For that matter, I still don't know whose side I'm on.
Rick has gone over the edge. He has turned into the uncivilized man who cannot live with 'good' people. Or has he?
An alien operating system clashes with the Galaxy-class Enterprise computer, causing the ship to be next to stranded in the Neutral Zone... And when the Romulans are around to notice, too. A nice set up for what turns out to be a somewhat eccentric episode that misses more than it hits.
