Review: This episode was certainly a different one from Fantastic Four’s usual standards, but still an interesting one. Since the show began, we’ve not seen much of Sue outside of her being kidnapped more times than Jack Bauer’s daughter so it was nice to see her get some development here. When used correctly, she’s actually a very interesting character.

The villain of the piece wasn’t anything especially outstanding, but not bad at all. Again, Sue was the centre point of the episode. It’s interesting to see what happens when they forced to fight each other. It worked both in this episode and earlier in the season in the first part of the Inhumans Saga.

One of my favorite parts of the episode was the ‘reedium’ affecting their moods, and made everyone start shouting at each other. One important thing to note, Mr. Fantastic is damn funny when he’s angry. He goes off on one but still manages to speak in his intellectual manner; a hoot and a holler.

Again, it’s something different. That in itself makes for a nice change of pace. It certainly beats Johnny mopping over a girl he knew for about an hour.
