Cul de Sac, The 5

Oh, this nearly could have been something the whole series was about!

The parents are back. But it is immediately obvious to anyone who is watching that these adults are evil, clearly pod people. And so we spend half of the episode waiting for everyone else to catch up. And when they do, it is nearly scary, however the scare is undercut by having the heroes be able to revert back to themselves with no problems what so ever and never seeing the adults as a threat represented by their parents again.

Kids with replacement parents that are evil have plenty of potential, and this is wasted here. The wave could have converted adults to evil selves, and slowly more is revealed about that, but instead it's blown in one go. Sigh.

One episode left, and I'm not seeing anything good come out of this.
