Goofs

In the episode the actors are seen inside an MRI exam room with a cell phone. This phone would have been attracted to the magnet not to mention erased being located in the fringe field of the magnet. Anyone who had MRI training would know that any of these items would have to be left outside the room. See more »

Setting up plot twists...
2 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The second episode of Black Box does not move at the breakneck speed of the series pilot.

The opening scene, however, having a young woman's head explode, is as shocking as it could be. Thankfully, nobody dies... go figure (that's my big spoiler!)

I was interested to see one of the Pilot Reviewers, who rated the show rather poorly, inadvertently deliver a prediction of doctor malpractice, something that is front and center in this episode, threatening Dr. Black's career while, at the same time, providing more of a glimpse into Dr. Black's past... all is connected, at least in Dr. Black's mind.

The only issue I personally have with the plot is with Dr. Black's sister-in-law Reagan, who seems a bit of a hard-assed b---- and needs to be shown to be more sympathetic and righteous. So far, and I cannot blame the actress so much as the script writers, she seems to be operating more out of a power trip than out of real concern for her adopted daughter in keeping her away from Dr. Black... Regan seems to be acting as if she is Dr. Black's mother in punishing Dr. Black by not letting her go to Esme's recital.

Seriously, guys, I'm not feeling that, and it's important... the rest, well, the rest has me hooked...

While this episode slows plot pacing significantly, it builds, on what it is we learned in the first episode without getting in the way of the story. It also adds more interesting elements and a pair of interesting characters in the form of two interns played by Geeky Leo Robinson (Tasso Feldman) and Determined Ali Henslee (Aja Naomi King). How they get developed will be fun to follow.
