The One With 48 Hours...
2 September 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really enjoy this episode. I find it very funny. I love the overall concept of the episode, as it is quite different from other plots from this show, and others like it.

In this episode, Jake makes an arrest without any proof, and now has forty-eight hours to get some evidence, or the perpetrator will go free. Of course, the interrogation isn't successful, and Jake decides to force his co-workers into spending their weekend helping him solve the case. So while stuck at the precinct, Boyle judges a pie contest between Gina, and Rose, and Captain Holt helps Terry look better in the eyes of his in-laws.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Awesome.
