To Catch a Neighbor (#2.24)
16 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The police comes to their door because their new neighbors are potential jewelry thieves. They ask for permission to work from their home. Then the neighbors invite them to dinner and they go wired up to have police listen to the conversations in the house. At some point thee is a shooting and the young policeman gets shot.

A great episode. Lots of funny moments. Especially love the ones with Sophia. Like when she opens the door or makes fun of the police guy because she thinks he can't hear.

The guest stars are also awesome. Was fun to see George Clooney so early in his career. And they even make fun of him being so young then! Joseph Campanella was a very handsome man in this episode and did great acting on his part.
