Oh Pete, my sister was always the pretty one
29 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The shows plot premise is a good one - models are quickly aging by 50 plus years and Pete and Myka are sent to New York to investigate. The whole reference to Oscar Wilde's the Picture of Dorian Grey is pretty nifty as is the Man Ray artifact. Also good is the side story of Claudia's starting to date the engaging young man, Todd, who she met in the previous episode. I also liked Artie conveying fatherly advise to Claudia - the relationship between the two characters works well. I tend to overlook character or plot inconsistencies in this series but in this case, Myka becomes little girl insecure. At one point she tells Pete that she can't be a model because it was always her sister who was the pretty one, the cheerleader who got all the dates. And all she was was smart and became a Secret Service agent - she wasn't pretty enough to be a model. She needs Pete's reassurance that she is, in fact, beautiful. Joanne Kelly must be a better actress than I thought because she can actually spout this drivel without either laughing or throwing up. But even this scene wasn't the dumbest in the show - that was the one where one of the models explains what great models can do - "When I walk down the runway with one look I can stop a war or start one." Oh please. The shows ends with Myka running after Pete asking him to tell her again what he said. It's a shame that the adolescent writer found it necessary to promote that old 1950s chestnut that every smart woman would rather be thought to be beautiful than smart and talented. Of course, it could be that this whole scenario was done tongue-in-cheek and was suppose to be funny. It didn't work for me.
