I liked it, but the first half more so. The politics crap is what I was trying to get away from (in MY SR series?), and the last episode was, I daresay, a bit over the top for me.
Or maybe I was those lame sunglasses Simon was wearing, that also just seemed to regress his devlopment a bit 'hay guys, i'm not my brother, i've got my own piece of eye-equipment, but instead i'll just wear these ugly/crazy sunglasses like my brother anyway!'
Like a friend of mine put it "It looks like a starfish is fucking his face"
