The Stupidity of character Nikki Alexander has reached new heights
11 February 2017 | by ratzsSee all my reviews

Watched tonight and the character of Nikki Alexander who of course usually jumps to conclusions, get is wrong, uses the first hour of the show to blame someone then changes it in the next hour. In this episode the idiotic premise was that she was 'friends' with a character, lost contact, remembers her when name is mentioned, visits her and chats and then suddenly has her cellphone number and are best mates yet again. Please give some realism to this show... forensic pathologists do not run around interviewing suspects, telling police what to do and rush ahead taking charge and not let the police do the investigative work. In the current episodes we have the head of the unit barely even in screen time and never consulted or updated by the Nikki character.
