Devin Related Show!, 10 May 2013
Author: ShelbyTMItchell from Seymour Tennessee

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

It was good for once to see Devin get the focus and spotlight on the show. As Michael in a sense, took a backseat as he is of course the focus.

Devin is arrested by a bunch of corrupt county cops and jailed over just a minor issue like a traffic ticket. As Michael at first thinks this is funny hearing from Bonnie but it sounds and turns serious. On what should had been a slam dunk case.

But it is more complicated than ever. As the cops are being run by the even more corrupt judge in the town as he owns it. As one person that was in jail with Devin ends up losing his life to the cops that can link them with other crimes.

It is a race against time for Michael to rescue Devin and the other inmates as well. Really nice to see Devin haul off and hit the idiot judge in the end.
