Watched it, I liked the details of the catch-up and some of the touches like Topher and Bennett.

However, I just couldn't really buy that with how crappy Rossum was that their Neuropolis lasted for 10 years with the 'heroes' raiding them. Their security is worse than Wolfram and Hart. (Also, Topher can unwipe the world but can't get a remote control going? I get the emotional need, but plot-wise very arbitrary. And what if it failed?)

I found the missing Alpha storyline interesting though.

Its debatable, by design really. Bester and Lyta both see the 'soul' depart the body while in the mind during death. They claim that it takes part of their own soul too.

The Day of The Dead is something else that comes to mind too actually, come to think of it.

I have to admit, I enjoyed reformed Alpha a whole lot. I would have liked to see more of him.

Yeah, that's pretty much my point. If it's debatable, you can't say that it definitely exists. [Razz]

I don't remember that well enough to comment on it either way.

Good point. I forgot about that that. Do any of the dead people reveal things to the characters that couldn't have come from their own subconsciousnesses?

I don't remember too well. Refreshing with the Lurker's Guide page, http://www.midwinter.com/lurk/countries/us/guide/096.html , it looks like there are two prophetic instances, Morden predicting something about Lennier and Kosh giving a message to Sheridan via Lochley.
