Superior episode with an aesthetic bent
29 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The crew try to solve a decades old murder of a coed undergraduate who was having an affair with her art history professor. The case hinges on recognizing a particular picture by John Everett Millais, leading light of the English nineteenth century avant-garde artistic group, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. In the late lamented series "Inspector Morse," one episode (season 8, episode 1, "The Way Through the Wodds") similarly revolved around a picture by Millais, who has unwittingly, and very much posthumously, become a favorite for TV mystery writers on either side of the Atlantic. Lucidly directed by Agnieszka Holland, and featuring particularly committed performances by Kathryn Morris and Danny Pino, the episode aims for an enlightened sense of aesthetics, and even weaves in a discussion of ideas of post-modernism to the plot. That being said, a scene with the detectives reading various Shakespeare plays with stupefying levels of general ignorance, is gratuitous and largely unnecessary in advancing the plot -- it is simply there to further set them off from the educated professor. If Chief Inspector Morse, or Detective Jane Tennison, assumedly know their Shakespeare, there is no real reason why five detectives in Philadelphia, home to excellent theaters and a thriving arts scene, should be portrayed as so thick.
