Hoped for better
13 May 2018 | by KingslaaySee all my reviews

I am a fan of this show and have enjoyed some high quality episodes in the 'past'.

However I feel this has been the weakest episode in the show's history. The strength of the show is the great historic events the team travel to and the internal conflicts they face. Lucy, Wyatt and Rufus are very likeable trio who are interesting and fun to watch. Even Jiya and sometimes Connor hit a few home runs but they and agent Christopher are sideline characters. It's fine to have them come along for the ride but the episode should be about history and the beloved trio. They did this right with Connor coming along for the ride with the blues singer episode but it was not all about Connor. I can see the need to involve the sideliners more but the mistake was to make the episode all about the agent and history took a back seat. It should have been more about the historic event. This is where the show shines.

Not a great episode and kind of weak for such a great show.
