Worthy of being in season 1 or 2
24 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I would have given this a 6.5 but IMDb doesn't allow half points so..., at any rate it was a good episode.

Solid acting with believable bad guys, much of which is due to the entertaining story line but, it didn't hurt that they hired guest stars that could act. The main guest acting was well above average and several of the bad guys in this episode were recognizable from earlier episodes and other shows(Victor Rivers, Julio Oscar Mechoso & Reni Santoni) which is good since it always helps when someone can pull off a potentially corny line with conviction and believability. This is something many of the episodes of season 3 were lacking.

Something I really missed was a nice pulse driven song at the emotionally charged climax of the episode, which it didn't really have. A climax that is. Or much emotion for that matter. But hey, every show can't be "Out Where the Buses Don't Run".
