Goofs

Two individuals with diagnosed deadly food allergies are depicted, neither of whom carries an epinephrine pen. During the trial, Pete eats a piece of shrimp in order to make a point about allergic reactions. Nick injects him with epinephrine, which cures him. Anyone with a diagnosed deadly food allergy carries an emergency pen. And, any medical provider or allergic individual knows the emergency injection is only a temporary "fix". It provides time for the individual to get EMT care or to an emergency room. The allergen is still in the individual's system, and it must be neutralized. See more »

CBS Better Not Kill This Series
2 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a good episode though I feel sorry for any Pharmaceutical company who would package their drugs this way. They deserve to get sued.

The episode does some good character interaction and sub-plots to go with the main plot in the title. Especially good is the one associate who is considering leaving Nick & company to work for the DA's office at the urging of her boyfriend.

Another good sub-plot is the Nick's secretary spying illegally on that associate. Think this plot might have some interesting development in shows ahead.

Jim Belushi seems to show strength interacting with everyone on the series and this is a plus that makes things interesting.

The question is, will CBS back this up after placing it on Friday nights where ratings for all shows are dismal? I think they should keep it going. This show proves they don't need big name guest stars in order to produce a good episode.
