Highly enjoyable story driven episode.
27 March 2019 | by b_kiteSee all my reviews

Cocoon has a woman Madeline carrying $5,000 in cash and a cache of diamonds, is in a terrible automobile accident but seems to suffer no serious injuries except for amnesia. A police detective, Richard is called in. He asks his psychic girlfriend, Sarah McPherson, to investigate. Sarah gets impressions of a cocoon, the faces of many different men, and vast time. Richard is attracted to Madeline, and they have sexual intercourse in the hospital. When an angry Sarah discovers Madeline's secret, she uses it to destroy both her rival and her straying lover.

Directed by John Gray who seems to be most notable for creating the Jennifer Love Hewitt series "Ghost Whisperer". Cocoon is a really interesting episode, because even though it doesn't really feature a creature type monster, which in most cases is what saves these episodes. This one however is an example of one where the story really makes it enjoyable. For starters the episode is very darkly lite looking very noirish, especially the scenes in the hospital room, speaking of which we even get a short PG-13 style sex scene in this one, which is really kinda outta place for this series. Our guest star here is Billy Drago actually playing a somewhat good guy. He does a pretty good job as does Kim Johnston Ulrich who is also really attractive, in one interesting note of trivia Drago's psychic girlfriend is played by his real life wife Silvana Gallardo who he was married to until her death from cancer in 2012. As for the final, I still found it really enjoyable, even though many might find it predictable as the story progresses. Our locations here this time around are a dimly lit hospital room and what appears to be the living room of a house, both serve the story good, all in all a really enjoyable episode for its atmosphere and interesting story telling, I've noticed the best episodes of this show seem to be the ones were talented directors seem to get the most out of there 20 minute run time. Highly enjoyable.
