Reactions and Reviews

Okay so I know it's a bit of a cliche that Blair was poor as a church mouse and that's why he was living in that warehouse in The Debt, but this story was written some time ago before there were quite so many "Blair as poor as a churchmouse" stories out there and I love this one. Jim's somewhat "out of his depth" attempts at being a good a Samaritan against his actual wishes is amusing and heartwarming. The scene where he cleans up Blair's kitchen and then goes shopping for him always makes me smile because it's just so Jim.It's a lovely sweet story about their gradually developing friendship.[1]
Ah, I liked this very much. A first-season story set before The Debt. The perceptions we have of other people are filtered through our assumptions; it was sort of angsty to see how they were misunderstanding each other, and both wanting more, but not knowing what the other was thinking. It was refreshing to have no mystical Sentinel/Guide things pushing Jim's actions, just simple, ordinary human concern. [2]
