Quotes

Michelle Carey: Well, then let me tell you something else that I have imagined. I did a little research. And it turns out that Tru isn't the first young woman to mysteriously pop up in the nick of time and save the lives of total strangers. There was another... before her.
Davis: I asked you to leave.
Michelle Carey: Tell Tru, I'm sorry I missed her. But I'll be sure to catch her next time.

Back to the future meets Miss Congeniality.
29 June 2008 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

All of Harrison's dreams come true when he is invited to be a guest judge at a beauty contest. Unfortunately he is using the event to pay off some gambling debts by trying to influence the outcome.

When one of the contestants turns up in the morgue Tru must go undercover to find out who would want to murder the young woman. When a jealous ex boyfriend becomes chief suspect we know straight away it isn't him. Is it one of the rivals? Or could it be another judge? I saw the ending long before it arrived.

This is not one of the better episodes and does little to enhance the story lines or the characters. I hope the writers don't fall into the habit of just recycling old Columbo episodes.

My opinion - pedestrian.
