One more task for our social worker police officer, 2 May 2016

The more I watch this series approaching the end, the more I get tired of it. There is nearly nothing of crime anymore, I mean hard boiled crime schemes, bloody, brutal, and not social work for the lead character, supposed to fight crime and gangsters, and certainly not runaway kids. OK, there is a tiny murder scheme, here, but the main link remains around young men involved in a case which remains more a social one than anything else. I don't doubt that direction in the series was a decision made by the executives and then ordered to the screen writer, maybe to widen the audiences, for instance more housewives...Whom I am not.

Look for the young Dennis Quaid, in a hoodlum character.

I admit that I have seen worse in this series, we don't reach the bottom with this episode. Maybe the next.
