Season Seven Highlight
6 November 2007 | by (Iowa, United States) – See all my reviews

Women all over the city are being decapitated left and right, leading the police to call upon Jack, a top-flight detective, to wrangle a confession out of a slimy screenwriter.

The two English actors in the title role do remarkably well as they go, dramatically, head to head in an episode almost too good for television. Eddie Izzard, an extremely funny comedian, holds his own in what is unfortunately one of the last episodes of Crypt ever.

The episode is, however, bogged down by a series of light-weight episodes preceding it. But this one is definitely worth your time, at least to see the show's final good episode show what truly could have been done if it had gone on.
