Did You Know?


The title Of Mites and Men is a play on the title of the 1937 John Steinbeck book Of Mice and Men. See more »


Dr. Saint-Augusta says "[Dr. Fung]'s been having some issues with his interstellar communications system". Later Dr. Fung says, "You do realize I'm actualizing a real-time interplanetary communications network." These descriptions are contradictory. Dr. Saint-Augusta's "interstellar" description is wrong, and she should know better. Dr. Fung does describe his own invention correctly as "interplanetary". See more »

Plenty Going On
28 May 2018 | by GunnersMateSee all my reviews

Of Mites and Men has plenty going on to keep the viewer engaged and entertained in this season-arc-driven plot. Allison is on reluctant leave after her brain-takeover experience with Barlow, Astraeus candidates are put their paces to see if they can meet the challenges of space travel; and there is a crisis brewing with Global missing chunks...of itself. It is a fun episode with requisite physical and character-driven comedy but more double entendres than usual (a LOT more). Unfortunately, the latter seems a bit forced and designed to fan the flames of a series with a few years under its sci-fi belt - which is disappointing. As as side, Wil Wheaton's ongoing turn as an egotistical scientist is curiously welcomed - sometimes a character designed to be annoying can be so irksome that their mere appearance detracts from the story being told, but Wheaton crafts his performance perfectly so that while his character needs a good slap upside the head, you can't wait to see what he does or says next. Just terrific.
