Okay, well they looked liked LOLCATs and people on the twitterfest kept making lolcat jokes so I can only assume I wasn’t the only one to see it.
I think overall it was a lot better than last week’s episode by being action-y and adding in relationship bits (a.k.a. Abby and Jenny have girl talk, Abby kisses Connor on the cheek after he tries to rescue her again).
The story of having a ‘haunted’ house was quite novel though we never really found out what the lolcats really were. The dialogue was great as well – it had it’s fair share of humour.
There was the sexiest anomoly special effect we’ve seen to date which was shot quite close to the anomoly and then a 360 pan. Really lovely.
It did seem, however, they’d split the cast so that they could film two episodes at the same time and as a result we only really saw Abby, Connor, Jenny and new guy Danny Quinn. We did see the others (bar Rex) albeit briefly.
We saw Becker (i.e. Not!Arthur) and he was quite quiet because he’s rubbish and clearly only there as a totty replacement for Steven when actually the other new guy (Danny Quinn played by Jason Flemyng) is a lot sexier and seems to have some UST building up with Jenny (and we haven’t even seen him with Cutter yet!).
Fat Captain Ryan and Helen both appeared again and in the ‘next week’ preview it seems like they have a bigger role next week. As is the reporter who had a bit part in S02E06.
It does look like the series might be getting into the stride of things now which is great especially as I had such high hopes (like many others I’m sure) and last week seemed somewhat underwhelming.
