There's Something About Matt
23 November 2018 | by lchadbou-326-26592See all my reviews

There is something about the character of Nora Durst's brother Matt that brings out the ability of the writers of this fascinating show to come up with wildly imaginative episodes centered on this impassioned believer that have a probing moral thrust worthy of a Bible story.In the second season, it was the episode where Matt tries to bring his wife back into Miracle.Here it is a boat that he, Laurie,John and Michael are forced to take from Tasmania to get to Melbourne, a boat that has been bought out by a group of decadent sybarites who carelessly carry on with their pursuit of sex and partying even after Matt has witnessed a man hurled overboard.The story also allows for a confrontation between Matt and the murderer, a man who supposedly has (like Kevin) come back from the dead and claims to be God.Throw into this mix a ferocious lion being transported on the boat (we see Matt reading the passage earlier on the plane of Daniel in the lion's den from the Bible) and you have a striking and troubling little story worthy of the Old Testament.
