Critic reviews for Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad
What it genuinely is is the best kind of stand-alone, one which is built upon many previous events, and promises that it will have an impact on stories to come.
This episode was entertaining, fun to watch and felt like the show has finally found his heart.
When have we heard an awesome set like Wyclef Jean's "We Trying to Stay Alive" and Al Green's "Love and Happiness" in Star Trek? I want to know if these songs were on the writers' playlist as they were writing this episode.
That's a lot of ground to cover in one episode, but, thanks to the whole time loop conceit, the episode was able to tackle it all and more, and in a convincing way.
In general, Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad is a charming interlude before the storm that seems ready to hit next week.
