“Fantastica Voyage” is about the journey we take, knowingly or unbeknownst to us; when we ride the rails of imagination, embellishment, metaphors, parables ,”what if” or the many ways of talking, to get our story across. It’s a sale and a means of making a product or point, more attractive for purchase. Be it animal, vegetable, mineral or…self! Yet lying for profit is a crime, it’s fraud.
And this is the case against Whitney Holland (Liz Alderfer) She believes, she can provide the world with water through desalination. Yet her R&D, (Keith Reddin) no longer a believer, quits and turns her in to the feds. She goes to TAC.
Like last week’s ” Labor Days” the episode starts out, with a promise of all good. Yet unlike last week, it actually was…”all good” from beginning to end.
It was the kind of episode of old. “Is a hotdog a sandwich”? For it begs so many questions, ya’actually had to think about it. When is a lie fraud? Are all untruths, lies? Is the truth Absolute? What’s a story if not a lie? One of my favorite movies. “Big Fish” comes to mind. How much of a story is the truth? If it’s kinda’ true, is it still a lie? I had so many questions; I loved it!
I particularly liked the removal of Bull’s “makeup” His eyeglasses are non prescription! Is it fair to call Bull a liar or is he just wearing “make up” and something making him a better buy?
Furthermore, the predictable win-win was not the case. We had another mistrial. Bull is no longer. “Perry Mason” This is a good thing. Putting, the season opener behind us, this may prove to be a very good season, if we keep this up. “I hope”
