An episode so average you might not even remember watching it.
11 August 2007 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

It's not that this is a bad episode, it's certainly not great, but there's not much worth criticizing here other than that it's the equivalent to watching paint dry.

The plot is garden variety: an immoral politico running for office gets snared in a sex scandal and the cops unravel the trail of corruption and double dealings. Sure there's plenty of potential, but the writers can't elevate the material beyond the mundane.

The trend of mediocre seems to pervade every aspect of the episode: directing, acting, production design, etc. While on one hand it's an improvement over the Caitlin Davies (Sheena Easton) episodes, it's a far cry from the first 6 episode of season 4. Hopefully we're heading back in the right direction.
