10 out of 10, a perfect episode
27 July 2019 | by greg-goremykinSee all my reviews

"The Anatomy Lesson" is an episode I'd been looking forward to with equal parts anticipation and trepidation. It was judged by DC editors in 1984 as one of the ton ten stories of the year, and Alan Moore's first really huge step towards super-stardom in the comic scripting world. With the changes the series has made to his original story arcs, I was worried this would be a big let down, just because of how unique the comic was, especially with the framing narrative of Woodrue remembering it all happening exclusively in his memory.

But this episode, though with a lot of changes, still captured well the huge turning point in the story of the Swamp Thing, where a new type of Swamp Thing fully emerged, and a lot of long and lingering storylines wrapped up while simultaneously opening up new ones. What a pity the show got cancelled, it is just getting better and better with each episode.
