A day at the track
19 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is another fairly standard episode of the series. The brothers are hired to find out who is trying to sabotage a race car driver (Cliff Potts). The red herring is an ambitious lady driver (Lenore Kasdorf) who also wants to win. She finally convinces A.J. and her rival on the track that she would never want to harm anyone. But by then, it's almost too late to stop the real killer.

In a previous fourth season episode the Simons visited an older woman in a nursing home. We once again have scenes that take place at a nursing home. This time a retired driver who lost the use of his legs four years ago is convalescing. But in a surprise twist, he leaves the facility to put a revenge plan in motion.

The episode has some good moments. There's a fun part where A.J. and Rick are at a bookie's office, placing a bet on the big race. And earlier there's a brawl inside a bar where the lady driver more than proves her skill at fisticuffs. I suppose we need these high-concept visual scenes to lift us up out of the otherwise routine aspects of the plot.
