Back to the successful formula
10 March 2007 | by (Washington state) – See all my reviews

This marks a return to the successful formula of this series. Introduce the nefarious part of the plot. Introduce the Harts in some light-hearted moments featuring Max. Cleverly bring the two together. Reveal the murder. Keep the storyline going and the audience wondering how the Harts will be connected to it, and to what part(s) they will be connected to. Finally, someone spills the beans and the Harts' curiosity is stoked. An encounter with a thug spurs them to investigate further. We learn the nefarious element, although the murder isn't it (nor is even mentioned - evidently, that element was well covered up). Crooks and Harts have their encounters. The Harts eventually win. Ends with a light wrap-up that has a touch of humor. Where this episode excels is that the intrigue is drawn out, and the sport of the lead thugs is brought into play towards the end.
