Time management... and a good dose of patience.
23 September 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

No one will find an extraordinary incident nor will find a major twist of of events in this episode. However, the audience will witness a series of events that should have motivated the following title: "A Day's Work".

I lost count, but I'm sure Brisco and Green dealt with more homicides and a related birth in a 24hrs period. The good old murder motivated by emotion is quite present indeed, but the motives are as screwed as a large urban society like New York does to families: dysfunctional.

This episode was enjoyable for the series of events that the detectives had to simultaneously manage... or it was a way to dump unused story telling by the writers. Nevertheless, very entertaining.
