High Stakes
7 March 2017 | by flarefan-81906See all my reviews

This is a decent survival-type story. Banner impersonates Dr. Patterson, a safety inspector, so that he can gain access to a nuclear power plant's gamma ray laboratory and try to cure himself. David is found out just in time for an earthquake to hit the plant, trapping him in the laboratory with three staff members and a wounded security guard and sending the reactor careening towards meltdown.

I like that the stakes are nice and high here. It's not just the lives of David and his companions that are at stake; it's the whole town. On the downside, said companions come off as hopeless jerks. Aside from the security guard, they all seem more concerned with hating on David for his little identity theft than with finding a way out of their predicament. Combined with their lack of real personality, it's hard to care about what happens to any of them.

David Banner's little espionage in the first act is engaging, and this is the first (and perhaps only) episode where he is never called "David" or "Banner"! There's not much to comment on with this ep, but it is a solidly entertaining if unexceptional watch.
