Is the title of "Mr. Secretary" implying that in the alternate universe America is a Communist system?

Anyway at least I got something right weeks ago...

Hurrah...

West Wing is still showing in the alt universe (and up to season 11)!

How do I get there?

Just saw episode 21 (where Peter goes it alone), after skipping the musical episode (took 10 minutes of it and could take no more)

Another really good episode I thought, and Pete got to show he could do it on his own!!

I didn't quite get the ending though:

Mediocre

But at least it answered my question about the tattoo.

On 2.23 is it sad that the thing I loved most about it was "the man of steel returns" comic cover on the the wall?

Otherwise - quite predictable ending, but enjoyable nonetheless. Nimoy was excellent, though, and it's such a shame that this is his swan song.

Wow i didnt pick that up just thught cool framed comicso tneh wall i picked upt it had the millers dark knight not that it was super man though

Cheers for the link Terribaly mauled.




I really enjoyed this season the finale went out with a wimper but i like the set up of altoliver.

I thought it a bit lame that alt universe needs Peter dead thus taking away the argument for Peter to not want to come back

The Alt universe wants him dead? I missed that. I thought that they just need him to use the machine to destroy 'our' universe. Does it kill him in the process.

I'm also not sure where this machine came from (Bell's design?) and why it's genetically coded to a guy that's been missing for 20 years.

Other than that I loved it, glad the Olivia's were actually at odds and love the fact AltOlive has infiltrated 'our' side. It was fairly obvious when the switch happened though. The quarantine zones were great too.

For Season 3 I hope Olivia starts being able to demonstrate and control the abilities which they have been aluding to more and more. Being shut up in a dark room will hopefully allow her the time to focus her 'powers'. What has she actually been able to do so far? - defuse a bomb with lots of flashing lights with her mind, perceive objects from the other side and aid in crossing over to rescue Peter. Oh and some pyro-kinesis as a child.

I dislike the whole infiltration thing, it was so obvious it was coming but I hoped they'd do something else. So long as it doesn't drag on past a few eps it may be tollerable, but if it runs the whole season it'll be amazingly nngh.

Were they saying liv had to open the crack and use bellpower to get them between worlds or that the crack was already there from when they travelled over? If she had to open it, how did altliv do it?

Much like alias and lost, the two good seasons have been done now so it'll be downhill all the way until the final season turns into a complete pile of poo that makes no sense at all ;/

A bit of trivia (via TWoP)

Written on a blackboard in the alt!Lab was the phrase 'A demon's twist rusts' and the glyphs translate to 'Weiss'. You can then rearrange the phrase into 'Don't trust Sam Weiss'.

I've been a bit behind in watching these - been recording them on Sky. Have I missed the final 2 or have they not been shown yet, as my series link has disappeared ?

Just caught up with the final block of episodes over the past few days, and (Brown Betty aside) loved it. My favourite program so far this season - although I still have loads to cath up on.

Big thumbs up to the alternate Back to the Future too
