Undeveloped Episode That Adds Nothing To Overall Plot line
Joe Laleman from United States
3 March 2013
After watching Red Lacquer Nail Polish, the first thing I wanted to
know was who directed it? I couldn't find one listed. During the
showing, I felt like I was watching an old episode from Dragnet. The
direction and camera work was choppy, static and uninteresting with
quick cuts from one character to another with little attention given to
reaction from others in the show. The dialog was dull and uninspiring.
"Just the facts ma'am, just the facts."
Good actors played meaningless characters with no depth. The story was
far too predictable with no surprising twist in the end and it added
nothing to the overall Red John plot line. The scenario with Rigsby
made him look pathetic and incompetent. The characters didn't seem to
know what they were doing or why. None of Jane's special talents were
used to solve the case. Lisbon was uncharacteristically out of touch
even though the clues were obvious.
As a big fan of the show from the beginning, I was very disappointed.
Even the title of the episode didn't connect with the story. I have to
wonder if this one was just filler to complete the season's lineup? It
felt thrown together.
