Well, it starts great...
17 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

BLAM! Right off the bat, we see a man in a shower and an arm with a gun pointed at him, then the trigger is pulled. The shooter is wearing a suit and a tie, a boutonnière and a bowler. Next scene, another man lazes on the couch while his wife provides the exposition ("Isn't that how you became District Attorney?"). The doorbell rings, and it's our shooter.

Alas, this is where the episode peaks, about three minutes in. We are quickly given the who, what and why, so the tale is about how to get out of the mess. I don't have a problem with this in principle, but here it just maintains no energy. The resolution isn't convincing, and there's the thing where a guy is knocked down and out for just long enough until he's needed again. And one of the leads looks a bit like Ralph Nader.
