After my previous rant about the first episode of the season, I felt the need to shine a light to the balance that was restored by this latest episode. Seth MacFarlane made sure that we all get the message loud and clear, this show is at it's heart an homage or a respectful nod at all the sci-fi creations that served as nerd wet-dreams for the past few decades. This episode managed to tell a small story that could've easily happened in any of the Star Trek/Stargate/Star Wars/Battlestar Galactica universes; and also serves as a good starting point for many different story-lines that could be followed regarding the Krill/Union potential dynamic, or more personally through Ed and his latest "conquest" Telaya the Krill Spy. MacFarlane really did a good job on this one, he managed to draw some clear lines between the core of the show and the genuinely comical situations that were never exploited enough in the past of the genre. For those of you who read this diagonally, which I assume are most, I leave you with this at the end : we all have to leave certain shows to carve an identity and find their "feet", especially when we see that a lot of talented people are working on it, because that is the only way we can encourage this kind of art medium to supply us with what we fully enjoy rather than short, formulaic, diluted content.
