    So begins the Franklin walkabout saga. One of the least interesting series of episodes.Report

      I don’t find his storyline here especially compelling compared with what’s going on, but I think the show deals with it pretty effectively by having the bulk of the episodes be about larger things. This one may be called “Walkabout”, but its primary plotline is the tide starting to turn in the Shadow War, with the alliance using telepaths to finally be able to go head-to-head with Shadow ships and win.

      The nice thing about a show with a lot of different plotlines is that you can pretty much always find at least one that interests you.Report

        I agree yes. The whole Franklin thing is just a distraction for me. I liked the last episode in this little story arc but the two before were meh.Report

        I thought he moved from being a boring character to an interesting character (remember the one where the kid died?) to being a boring character again in this arc.

        I hope he becomes an interesting character again.

        The problem with relying on telepathic powers to defeat CGI enemies is that the acting involved all rely on making straining faces. This is a tough tightrope to walk. Tough to the point where I’ve never seen it successfully pulled off.Report

          Yeah, I know what you mean. I think Feanklin is most interesting when he’s confronting his mistakes. I don’t actually care enough about him to want to know “who he really is”.Report
