In the Beginning: Themes of Season Four|
Etrangere ~ June 06 2002
If we have a look at the titles and themes of the episodes, we find a handful of them dealing with the idea of renewal of Man. The Freshman, A New Man, This Year's Girl, and even Who Are You, Living Condition, Superstar, New Moon Rising. The Initiative is at the source of the creation, or the recreation, of three important characters from this season: Adam, Riley and Spike (Five if you count Forrest and Graham, but they have probably more value as Riley's doubles). The evolution of these three characters is contrasted, one against the other(s) all along the Season, sometimes in parallel, sometimes in opposition.
