I fought the law...
30 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An over-the-hill cop, depressed over the murder of his wife, descends further into madness when he gets his hands on a cursed sheriff's badge that dispenses its own brand of justice...

I liked "Badge of Honor" but I also found it to be rather cheesy at times. Of course, one could argue that almost all of the episodes have at least some cheese factor to them, but for me, this one was a little bit much.

The cheesiest moment is the opening scene which plays out like a bad Miami Vice episode. You have glossy and implausibly pretty cops engaged in a shootout with even glossier and more implausibly pretty criminals. To really hammer home the 80's cheese, a moody saxophone/synth piece plays over it.

Most of the plot is rather predictable: you know Sharko is going to get fired, you know his invalid wife is going to turn out to really be a corpse and you know that Micki's friend is really working undercover.

I found the antique user to be pretty dull as his acting fell flat. I didn't really care much about what was happening to him and his backstory is something you can see in almost any TV show or movie about a vengeful, maverick cop with nothing to live for. Unlike most antique holders, I didn't find myself rooting for or against him.

I will say that the badge is a rather unique item in that it doesn't seem to grant a benefit or special power to the user. I guess you could say the benefit is the satisfaction Sharko gets from seeing his enemies die but it's still unusual that its only power is to kill. The locket from season 3's "Repetition" is the only other antique I can think of that didn't have a real benefit to it, so I found this refreshing. The death scenes that resulted from the badge's usage were ultra-cheesy, though.

Not every episode of a show can be perfect and I'll certainly take this episode over "Cupid's Quiver" or "The Poison Pen" any day, but this isn't one I'd go out of my way to see either.
