My only negative comment: A four-minute Briefing Room scene in a ten-minute episode? That's a hell of a lot of nothing but talk.
Anxious for the next one.
Yeah....that one was a struggle, but we cut a lot of out it. From a directorial standpoint, much of that had to be in there to set up what was going on. 4 minutes was nothing compared to what could then be cut out once you establish Glenn, the globes, and what the background of the story is.
Act 2 takes the pacing up further. We see that the energy is not only affecting people, but mechanical devices as well.
