Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Galatin comes in looking for answers regarding his lady love. By the end, he knows all he needs to know. The isolated base seems plausible, given the idea of targeting biological weapons.

Con: It's obvious fairly quickly that the psychologist is a machine. It's also hard to believe that such sessions would be confidential--they're not in the real military. And you'd think a base of a few hundred people would have some social life.
