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

Pro: So, apparently, Everlast simply wanted advice from a mobster on how to establish control over his 42 bretheren, and Mr. Meek apparently had useful advice for him—once he’d proved himself with the human tech people.

It was kind of funny that all but one of the people swallowed the dimes.

Con: It was also pretty awful.

We saw how powerful the aliens’ technology was. I find it hard to believe that an American mobster, who mainly operates by threatening people, could really have useful advice for an alien like Everlast.
