My reaction
Concept:3/4 (Good)
Story:3/4 (Good)
Characters:3/4 (Good)
Dialog:3/4 (Good)
Pacing:4/4 (Great)
Cinematography:2/4 (Indifferent)
Special effects/design:4/4 (Great)
Acting:3/4 (Good)
Music:4/4 (Great)
Subjective Rating: 8/10 (Great, 4/4 (Great)). Yet another otherwise-well-done episode marred by hilarious sexism. Also, the memorable casting pretty much ensures that no matter how long its been since last watching it, I’ll never forget how it ends (and the suspense depends on not knowing who dunnit).  Still an excellent episode, though.
Objective Rating (Average):3.3/4 (Very good)
