Brian posted a message about this episode a few days ago, and I don't believe anyone replied to it so far, so... here am I... I don't think it was an Innobotics episode (I hope it wasn't) - Kel and his friends didn't look like Valerie 23, Mary 25 or Martin GX-21 (from Resurrection, hehehe) since the Innobotics ones don't seem to have 'blue blood' through their iron veins. However, I missed the teaser (could anyone tell me what happened at the very beggining ? I managed to tape the episode right after the first control voice). At the end of the episode, the control voice was : "As machines grow more human, we must be wary that we do not become less so." I remind you that you can find the control voices for seasons 3 and 4 here : -- http://www.theouterlimits.com/downloads/voices.html If anyone knows where I can find or hear the Control Voices for seasons 1 & 2, I'd greatly appreciate. In my opinion, THE HUNT was the best Season 4 episode. There was a great mood in this one, some really clever dialogue (although it was weird to have two androids fall for each other). Nice work Mr Azzopardi (again) !! By the way, did he direct any season 6 episode ? During S4, what are your favorite eps ? Mine were RELATIVITY THEORY and THE VACCINE. There were a bunch of strong episodes (Glyphic, Lithia, To tell the truth) during S4, but also a few stupid ones (most notably Fear Itself and Josh). I hated so much Fear Itself !! Such a great premise and idea, but so wasted by so many silly clich�s... - David. -- "Il existe une soci�t� secr�te, comprenant sept hommes, qui contr�le les finance du monde.

When Kel goes out of the truck at the end, he only says to the hunted robots something like : "I won't hurt you. I'll explain to you again the rules of the Hunt", which is clearly a reference to the beggining of the episode, when Pete told him something similar. I don't think the ending was stupid. What _was_ stupid was Clute's reaction when his brother's son is killed ("I'll kill them... to avenge Eric...!!" It was unbelievable... as if, in such a situation, while his nephew lies dead on the ground, Clute's only matter was to go and kill the androids). Although I did not definitely find the reason Kel suddenly becomes a hunter, I consider these two options : 1_ Kel was reprogrammed to become a hunter : when the guard finds him, he says Kel will need the Procedure #1046 or something like that. They've done the same thing before to android Pete who was forced to become a hunter because of this Procedure. As a result, we can imagine that, even if it was the last thing Kel would have done, well, he had no choice since he was reprogrammed to behave this way. 2_ Kel didn't even need to be reprogrammed and asked himself to become a hunter : because he lost all faith in Human Qualities and Virtues and forgot all the Ideas and people that were dear to him (i.e. Tara), he could as well go and kill other androids. I just realized that somehow, it would be the Ultimate way to become a human, therefore acquiring their own weaknesses. Personnally, I prefer Option 1. It's more plausible, although less daring... - David. > > What does Kel say when he gets out of the truck and we can plainly see > that he's the hunter this time?

Ooooh... wish I could buy Heather Graham's dress from Resurrection...

>What does Kel say when he gets out of the truck and we can plainly see >that he's the hunter this time? (I still think it's damn stupid to do >that...that's the last thing Kel would ever have done). > Kel has been reprogrammed, thus further "inhumanity" of the sort the Control Voice warned against. Anyway, what he says is "I will not hurt you; I am here to give you the rules of the Hunt."
