Did anyone else think that the segment of the episode that showed the bomb testing and Bob arriving in the ensuing atomic chaos was just like an extended version of the stargate from the end of 2001: A Space Odyssey?

Not sure if it was a homage, rip-off, or what, but it just felt a bit jarring for me. 

However, the phrase 'Got a light?' will now forever send chills down my spine.

Thinking about it, that part is reminiscent, but that whole episode reminded me more of Eraserhead than anything else.

Well just watched Episode 8 and that was one of the most astonishing things I've ever seen.

I reckon the reference to Eraserhead must mean I'm safe to look at those spoiler tags shaolin_monkey!

Astonishing!

Glad you liked it. One of the most unforgettable hours of TV I think I've ever seen.

Second that.
