Critic reviews for Two Boats and a Helicopter
An episode specifically focused on Matt's personal drama and scarred history evokes episodes from Lost that delved into a character's past, revealed surprising links to other characters, and explained the personal baggage that made them who they are.
What was the impact of focusing on Christopher Eccleston for an episode, and did previous knowledge of Tom Perrotta's novel affect our perception of it? Indiewire discusses below.
What a bizarre, marvelous, freaky, abrupt left turn is "Two Boats and a Helicopter."
A stunning, sad, and clever chapter with a wicked "be careful what you wish for" message.
While it wasn't what I expected, I found myself intrigued by where Reverend Matt's story was going and what the lesson would be.
