Dude, you are so fired
17 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was going to give this series three episodes before I made up my mind whether to continue following it or not. This episode cut that down to two. The ADA on the case would have been so fired in real life, between his insubordination, his stipulation to a political third rail issue, and general conduct. Also, can someone please get Peter Coyote a toothpick to get those bits of scenery out from between his teeth? The story itself was listless and unoriginal, a painful mishmosh of Manson's cult (which was lampshaded by a couple of the characters) and a 1970s Movie of the Week. The acting was generally flat, with only Teri Polo giving any real depth and emotional content to her performance as the conflicted (and possibly coercive) former detective married to the investigating detective on the current case. Ms. Polo has very expressive eyes, and I hope that she finds a better role in a better series in the very near future. I'm done with this one.
