Holly Robinson Carried This Episode
23 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Holly Robinson,who portrays Officer Judy Hoffs,carried this episode entitled,"The Worst Night Of Your Life" from beginning to end.She showcased her talent and showed everyone that she also is a vital cog to the show's success aside from now Hollywood superstar,Johnny Depp.

In it,we get to see Hoffs sent undercover to a Catholic school for girls to investigate a student guilty of arson.When she finally captured the suspect,she was somehow not convince that she happens to be the guilty one until a something surprising happens in the end when there's fire in the high school prom of the said school.In a side plot,we get to see Officer Doug Penhall get involved in a robbery unexpectedly by the woman she intends to go on a date.

I felt that the episode was a good one as I have stated due to the wonderful performance of Robinson.Aside from her,it was also nice to see Lezlie Deane as the suspect Janey.She was a wonderful actress back in the 80's.Too bad that she is no longer acting just as Robinson is no longer as active as she used to be back then. Overall,it nice to see these actresses once again after not having seen the show decades now.
