The jury's still out
15 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After waiting so long for season 3, this opener was disappointing.

In fact, the show seems to have shifted gear- less cerebral & subtle, more sexy & clichéd. What had been previously an intriguing relationship between Alicia & Will seems to have been simplified to lust. Where is the romance? Where are the subtleties & development of the relationships?

Next there is the Kalinda / Cary / Blonde investigator sexual tension and innuendos. It was all a bit clichéd, particularly where the 2 "hot chicks" joined forces and arrested the suspect.

Finally, there is the Alicia / Kalinda relationship, which had been so interesting & layered in its tentative friendship in Seasons 1 & 2. Now it is reduced to a moody teenage strop.

Hopefully the rest of the season will shift back to the subtleties & character exploration of the previous seasons.
