At Least We Don't Need a House Cleaner
10 May 2007 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

Someone is casing neighborhoods for vacationers and then plundering the houses for all the furniture. An early episode of the fourth season, there's a clear move toward injecting more humor into the proceedings. Here the levity surrounds a newly-wed cop and a pixilated pet store owner. It's pretty well handled, though the growing trend becomes an irritant for purists since the comedic interludes distract from the main business, and too often make Frank appear somewhat dense and inappropriate. The episode itself is heavy with procedure and includes a rather touching sequence with two of the victims-- a little girl (delightfully officious) and her crippled grandfather. There's also a rather gratuitous round of fisticuffs-- likely another concession to the new season. Otherwise, a routinely entertaining entry.
