This will be a rather short review, with almost no pictures. But it will give you a place to talk about it.
Let me tell you something about my household. Imagine a friend of mine would come by, say around breakfast time. Here is how it would go at my place. My friend and my daughter would share what’s already on the table, and I would go back into the kitchen and make more pancakes. Or whatever else my friend would want for breakfast.
Let’s envision this scene….
“Hey, Steve, come on in. Did you have breakfast?”
“Nah, I’m good. Where’s Gracie?”
“At the table. You sure you don’t want pancakes. The griddle is hot.”
“Hey, Grace. Man, those do look good, Danny. Maybe I will take a couple.”
“Want some bacon? It’s frying right now.”
“Yeah, sure. Thanks.”
Of course that is just me. Oh wait, I am sure that, or a variation of it, is what would happen in every normal person’s household. But we all know that Dannoying is not a normal person. He is one to be rude, mean and insulting toward his so called best friend. So much so, that even his own daughter is annoyed by him.
But enough of that cretin, let’s have a look at the rest of the episode. Oh, but wait. He has an equally scintillating scene while they were on the boat near the end of the show.
I really don’t have too much to say. The episode was filled with lies, theft, murder, which is par for the course, but for some reason I had trouble following all that was happening underwater.
I too must confess it wasn’t really that interesting what happened below. The whole plot was again very predictable, and really not worth mentioning.
The minute Junior, Adam and Tani figured out their air supply was disappearing, they realized why the one woman asked for an oxygen tank.
I had a really good laugh about that. Give that hyperventilating woman a paperback, not an oxygen tank. A blind person could see that she was the one.
Too late… she realized they figured her out.
She locks them inside the chamber, steals the rest of the oxygen tanks, steals their Little Yellow Submarine and races to the surface while giving herself the bends.
You would think she knew how to get safely to the surface. Guess she was in a hurry. 😉
On the surface, Steve and Danny learn their friends are incommunicado, so they race to the dive site and somehow make it before the Coast Guard which was already nearby. I KNOW that ship goes faster than that!
LOL, yeah, that was kinda odd.
When Steve learns his friends and the other people down there have only 6 minutes of air left, he launches into SEAL mode and figures out how much air each person will have if they share the two tanks, he and Danny have on board their boat. Amid arguing, he explains the only way to get the tanks down is to free dive them with the weight of the tanks carrying him down 127 meters. I admit, Danny has valid arguments in that Steve will need some of the air in the tank and that Steve will have difficulty getting back to the surface without air.
OK, let’s talk a moment about this part of the show. I don’t understand why they didn’t have the facility in a depth of, say 60 to 80 meters? That would have made everything a lot more believable. On the other hand, even the 127 meters are doable under special circumstances. The world record is 253 meters. So, although a bit far out there, it was all in the realm of possibility. Not likely to succeed, but possible. The science behind it was right. And that is enough for me.
But Steve knows his limits, and something tells me he has done a similar maneuver in the past. So, he asks Danny for help with the tanks while he gets his flippers on… never knew you wear shoes with flippers, but his Chucks looked cute. 🙂 He cuts off Danny’s last argument, or good luck speech or whatever and with his lungs full of air, he descends. I loved when he takes in the air then grabs the tanks and follows them down.
Best scenes of the entire episode. I just loved it.
When Steve reached the inside tank, I must say he looked a bit air-starved. What great acting on Alex’s part throughout all of these water and rescue scenes. He dropped off the tanks and knew he needed to get out of there because one more person on board would be less air for all. Being so depleted of air, I’m not sure how Junior and Tani dragged those tanks to where the others were waiting, but I assume, since they all made it out alive, that they managed to do so. And we will assume that the Coast Guard finally got there in their ten-minute window.
Loved when Steve broke the surface and Danny hauled him in, first with the life preserver and then dragging him onto the boat. Again, Alex played his part so well being depleted of oxygen. His inability to catch a breath to be able to talk and also what appeared to be a killer headache were played out amazingly. I would guess there was an oxygen tank in his future, too, although they never choose to show those scenes.
Despite to have to suspend believe for at least a little bit, way less than on other occasions on this show, I absolutely loved these scenes. All the rest was just meh, in my eyes. But thanks to Steve diving and saving the day the show makes it into ok/good category.
Everyone came home safe and our last scene is Junior making nice with his dad. I’m glad they are making strides to come back to each other, but you know, I really don’t need to see a lot of it. It would be nice for Dad to meet Steve though. That could be a cool scene.
I really don’t need that much background on the supporting cast. I really like Junior, but I don’t need any more of his family. And I am already totally fed up with Tani and her brother.
No new ep this week and they look to be hit or miss for the next few weeks. But I’ll take what I can get.
So, how did you like this episode?
