...against episodes like this in any series. You know, the ones that focus almost entirely on new characters you know (or care) nothing about, and sideline all the regulars.
This odd script seems like a rewrite from another series, using the regular cast as handy bit players in order to advance the central plot about a law student who kills himself, and his father's quest for truth. The script itself is boring, with almost every scene consisting of two characters talking, and the plot depends on clichés we've seen once too often. Gone is any semblance of action, or even the group scenes (study groups, classrooms) that liven up the more "normal" episodes.
This is also executive producer Lynn Roth's first venture as a director, which may explain the number of scenes in which character's heads are chopped off by the frame.
For some reason, the execs seem to have saved some of the weakest episodes to round out season two. This is probably the worst of the lot.
