Suspension of belief
6 February 2015 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Suspension of belief: you sure heard about it before, but it's been hard for me. It's been about 15years (at least) since the last time I've watched the show on cable TV and I decided to try it out again. maybe not the best choice, since only the third and forth season were available on streaming, but I decided to try it out.

The problem with this episode is quite common. On the first episode the writers aways try to impress you, but it went to far. Characters make stupid things just in order to the protagonist to solve everything on his own. A fat guy try to to save a kid in a rooftop of a church and gets stuck, the kids is saved in the last minute by the protagonist who just happened to do the same thing in the sequence before with his blind friend.

This episode melted every chance I had to try to watch this series again, it's too long and repetitive.
