[TAS] Albatross

[TAS] Season 2, Episode 4: Albatrossalbatross

Rating: WATCH (For The Animated Series we use a simpler WATCH or Skip rating) 

In a lot of ways this feels like a standard Original Series episode, but that’s not a weakness, and it’s still nice to see some wackier designs plugged into that format. Plus Bones figures into this one prominently, so that’s always a treat.

    “a man who saves lives does not also kill”
    That’s quite a black and white generalization, lil survivor guy. Guess he’s a bit biased, though.

    I agree that this does have the same kind of ‘feel’ that a TOS episode would.
