"His Visit: Day Five" Season 1, Episode 6

Wow! I'm not exactly sure what to say. That was some weird television! So apparently John can be in more than one place at a time, and apparently he can orchestrate events so that others can travel with him (Bill and Vietnam Joe arriving at the hotel, despite being in the van). Oh, and he can also remove dead people from hotel rooms. The Shining would have played out totally differently had John been around! OK, consider my brain officially twisted. I know Milch is supposed to be going somewhere with all of this, but I would like for the road map to be a little clearer. Just a little bit. Is that too much to ask? It certainly seems like the religious angle is the one to focus on, though, what with John continuously mentioning his "father" towards the end of the episode, and his ability to heal/help those around him. I have to ask though, did Cissy really molest Butchie? That's certainly how it sounded to me! Man, these people are even more screwed up than I thought! I have to say, as murky as the plot has been so far, the dialogue and acting have served as beacons of hope for what this series could become - or, at the very least, rocks to cling to so as not to get dragged too far away by the cloudy waves. The previews for next week looked good. Milch sure likes casting old teen heartthrobs for some reason. And yes, I understand that Mark-Paul Gosselaar also starred in NYPD Blue, but I will forever remember the guy as Zach Morris from Saved by the Bell. I grew up in the '90s. What can I say? Also in the near future, a morose Freddie sits by what looks like Palaka's deathbed and tells his minion he doesn't want him to go. Could it be gangrene or might Freddie have simply beaten his lackey a little too badly this time? Oh yeah, and apparently, according to John, Shaun's going to be "gone" again. The kid's already been gone twice, what with the surfing incident and his running away from home - if you can call a trip to the skate park running away from home. Then again, I ran away from home as a kid, and the farthest I got was the front porch. And as long as we're drawing comparisons, my mom didn't have anything to do with "Moist Thighs, Pink Bottoms 3." Ugh! It pains me to even mention those two in the same sentence! Find video for John from Cincinnati in our Online Video Guide. show less
