What I loved about this episode - All of it. I loved Shark and his first officer's loyalty to him. I loved the start of Illya's bottomless stomach, his always running afoul of Elsa Barnman. It was such fun and yet it touches upon a very real fear of the time. What if there was a nuclear war? Who would survive and who should survive? Is it a question one man can or even should ask? Shark thought so. What started out as a noble cause sadly ended up in insanity. Still, it was a heckuva ride.
What say you, cousins?
