2,14 **** Excellent on Family Responsibility
18 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Responsibility is the key theme in this marvelous episode.

A teenager shoots one of the robbers who robbed them in their home and assaulted their mother. Of course, the robbers had already left so self-defense could not be claimed. Danny shows his human side by prompting him what to say in his statement. Danny's sister, the Assistant D.A., goes out of her way to get them the best lawyer imaginable. Of course, the father had first stated that he had done this in order to shield his son.

The episode points out a new thought among crooks. Rob the illegal immigrants. They will not go to the police.

Also, in the episode, it turns out that the mayor's illegitimate daughter is arrested for demonstrating against tuition hikes at her college. Naturally, the demonstration got out of hand and police were hurt. The mayor stepped up to the plate somewhat. His daughter was unaware that he is her father and the scene where she is doing community service is poignant.

On the other hand, Danny's niece feels rejection when her Defense Attorney father continues to have little time for her. It is at the traditional family dinner that this matter and others are hashed out. These dinners serve to bind family together.

What a wonderful show. It should have had a slew of Emmy nominations. Hopefully, next year this program will be honored.
