Nothing Special, but not bad
10 January 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I recently viewed an episode of this series called "Alibi for suicide". Production values are fair but a bit lacking, the script is fun and most of the cast acted well. In the episode, a man's wife commits suicide and tries to make it seem that he and his girlfriend killed her. It seems the man had wanted a divorce but the wife wouldn't let him do it. The episode runs about 25 minutes. The method in which the detective proves their innocence is among the strangest I've ever seen in a crime-drama. Unrealistic, maybe, but that hardly hurts the show. I hope to see more episodes of this series. Who knew bad manners could prove someone innocent?
