'Rites of Passage' doesn't hold many surprised for a show like this. Young runaway falls for the high-end glamour of a pimp and gets trapped into prostitution; your usual gritty cop show stuff. Except here big sister is a New York homicide cop . . . played by Pam Grier(!). And you know she's going to end up kicking some ass because her sister's fate is a foregone conclusion. That's what kind of episode this really is; a top-notch guest stars outing (man, does John Turturro play a good sleaze).

Even so, Grier and Philip Michael Thomas have electric chemistry here and the show puts Foreigner's 'I Want to Know What Love Is' to sad use. Grier's playing just the kind of strong character she was meant to. It's solid casting.

7/10
