Thanks a bunch guys!

You know, a little while ago I re-listened to some old podcasts from this time in season three and was a little surprised about how much you seemed to like this episode at the time (you basically said the same thing you said this time, that it wasn't as good as the premier but not a horribly bad episode). I think people remember it a little worse than it is partly because it has a memorably dumb title, and partly because everyone collectively remembers the 'cage episodes' as being bad quality (which I re-watched recently don't think in general are quite as terrible as people remember either, again possibly because there's that one memorably dumb aspect of the cages themselves which people think of. To me watching again, the episodes don't add much to the overall plot, and they certainly weren't as awesome as people were expecting at the end of season two, but for what they are it's not a nice little story, certainly not glaringly bad or boring; in fact of these first six episodes I'd say the next one is by far that worst and that doesn't involve the cage subplot at all.)

Maybe I'm alone in thinking this, but either way I'm looking forward to hearing what you say about the next few episodes :)

Adding to what Anonymous said, and after having recently rewatched the series, I would also say that this part of the story has gotten a bad rep, but isn`t really that awful. The premier is pretty good,so is Cost of Living, and I Do ,while maybe not being a perfectly satisfying fall finale, makes for a pretty intense episode, and features one of Jacks best moments in the show, imo (the flashback in that episode is rather dull, though). This episode and Every Man for Himself are both solid episodes. You wouldn`t miss them if they were gone, but they are alright to watch. Further Instructions is horrid, but as you said, that one doesn`t even feature the cages (one of Season 3`s biggest problems to me was that they had no idea what to do with the characters who weren`t involved in the action, and thus we get polar bear kidnappings, ping pong tournaments, and of course, Nikki and Paolo. This trend actually continues into Season 4, where the interesting and entertaining stuff was either going on at the Barracks or on the Freighter. The whole cage stuff does go on for too long, but in general, it really has quite a number of nice, dramatic moments.
