Great for the kids
18 December 2008 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

What started as a moderately entertaining show in episode 1 of season 1, quickly became overplayed, over-simplistic and generally childish, as effectively shown by this episode.

Watch how the captain behaves while interviewing the main suspect! Or the lieutenant moving about in the house: mimicking a red beret in a terrorist situation, with his gun pointing upwards. This is not funny - this is laughable. The simplicity of the story adds to the general impression that this in reality is Benji with humans. But Benji was better.

For kids only.
