I liked Joe's birthday party. Poole, not so much. To be honest, I watched this episode for the first time last night, and let's just say, this is one of those episodes where one viewing is enough. It was terrifying! Even though Poole got what was coming to him at the end, it still didn't satisfy me. Did anyone else feel that way about Poole and how he killed those poor women?
Wait a minute, wait a minute. What you're saying is that at your age, you don't know the difference between a girl and a horse?

Poole was one sick ticket for sure! Simon Oakland does a great job playing him. I love the way he says "You're a THUNDER MAN!"

Oakland played a similar character in Season 9's "Justice Deferred" - a man who kills women. He even has a signature song!
