This wasn't so much a bad episode as it was just missing something. The loss of Mann, Hammer and many of the others that made this series a classic, is truly evident.
The acting is solid with Castillo taking the point, which is fine since Olmos is a terrific actor. The story is a little dry, but if you were to read the script I'm sure you would see the potential. In the past, this would be where the MV style crew headed by Mann takes over and polishes this raw material into a gem. Since everyone has bailed, this gets cut and polished at a pawn shop instead of the "Diamond District" in NYC.
The only thing that saved this from a 4 or less was the acting. Lets hope this season gets better.
