Eden: It's an Endless World. Poor BIrkhoff. First he gets the full cavity treatment from a man who, just by looking, you can tell has got wide fingers , then a painful molar extraction. Not the best of weeks for the show's token geek. Alex's tale this week, by comparison to other events, did seem a little bit pointless. The persistence of Jaden's public antipathy towards Alex seems quite unlikely when the consequences of it are certain death, and though Alex did herself no favours in this regard this week, Jaden's growth in the coming weeks into more than simply a megabitch will be most welcome.
After Nikita and Jill had found the tape and the source, while in no way mourning the untimely passing of that particular idiot, Nikita and Michael had their customary meeting at the end of the episode. But, wait! Nikita escapes with one very sore arm, leaving one very disgruntled but, no doubt, mightily impressed Michael behind to once again lick his wounds. This fight scene was the episode's highlight. It was brief, and will win no awards for choreography or stunt doublage, but it was entertaining and a satisfying end to an episode which had far more highs than lows.
Sadly, in the denouement, the seeds were sown for an unnecessary romance between Alex and Thom, which will now certainly happen at some point, with Jaden as the jealous and usurped third party. Again, as in last week's review, we hope the show will not turn out to be quite this predictable and contrived. Division should really face up to the fact that this many good looking people locked up in a bunker together will eventually start bumping uglies, and that immediate and severe countermeasures are needed. With the threat of death seemingly not enough of a deterrent there are simple steps that have to be taken to fix this problem quickly.
They could start a new Uggo's academy, splitting the sexes so that one good looking sex is placed in digs with its homely opposite. This doesn't account for same-sex attraction, however, so how about a system whereby prolonged eye contact between recruits, for more than, say, three seconds, is punished by a ruthless kick where it hurts?
