Didn't I see this couple on "The Jerry Springer Show"?!
10 December 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode features one of the most god-awful couples I have ever seen on a cop show. The folks steal babies and sell them to a sleazy adoption lawyer (Richard Anderson)! The guy does it because with the money he can then buy cool stuff--like a boat! And, the lady goes along with it because she is so incredibly dependent that she'll do anything to keep him...and to keep him happy. After selling their own baby, they are impressed with how much they got--so they keep bringing the agency more--no questions asked. The pain they cause to the families is simply irrelevant to these amoral jerks! So, it's up to Five-O to track them down, rescue their latest stolen baby and shut down the sleazy lawyer (wow, that's redundant) for good. Not a terrific episode but a very good one--and one that may make mothers think twice about their own kids!
