What Does He Have to D
24 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode, Frost must deal with more duplicity and hidden agendas than normal as he tries to please a man who has it in for him. If such a character as Jack Frost actually existed, he would probably be asked to appear on "Sixty Minute." But no matter the results, he gets no respect from his superiors. He saves the lives of people, handles impossible crimes, etc. etc. etc. Of course, this is television, and on television people are only as good as what they have done lately. I can't get into the specifics, but there is a kidnapping, a series of murders, a pair of people incinerated, and a woman in danger for her life. This is a nicely done, complex story, up to the standards of this series.
