The Final Turn-off...Goodbye and Good Riddance
17 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This seres began with a fairly unique approach (for American TV at least) but inconsistencies have plagued it from the beginning. This episode was the last straw and I have ceased to watch any more.

The Booth character never really impressed me with the worn out, tiresome, cynical cop persona so pervasive in American TV depiction of law enforcement. In this episode Booth deliberately withholds and delays vital medical treatment to a female suspect in order to coerce information to further his investigation of the death of an undercover cop. His wife and emergency medical personnel look on and do nothing nor do they report his gross misconduct. Later in the episode, he verbally threatens another suspect taken into custody with physical abuse, i.e., being thrown down the stairs of the FBI building, while the District Attorney (DA), who is listening in on the interrogation, pretends not to hear. NB: That the DA is an African-American woman makes this even more reprehensible given the well documented abuse many of her race have suffered while in police custody.

This concept of "doing bad things for good reasons" and "the ends justify the means" approach seems to be the accepted entertainment norm in contemporary American TV dramas. One would hope and pray that is not -- nor ever will be --the accepted norm in real life police procedures and that foreign audiences are mature enough to recognize it as such.
