This was so bad it makes the rest of the series look like Citizen Kane
5 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Absolute crap!

What moron decided to take a show in it's first season and have an episode that has almost no scenes with it's lead actors? The fact that Tubbs is absent in the next episode leads me to believe there was some sort of salary or health issue that caused this piece of crap to have to exist (if anyone has any information on this I would love to read about it - please post). The episode features some of the worst acting I have ever seen in any medium and a ridiculous plot. I am hoping very sincerely that the producers had the sense to stop with these retarded forays with half-assed secondary characters and instead focus on the lead actors.
