A cursed pair of boxing gloves that gives the owner of them abnormal strength while a shadow of the boxer pummels another victim to death is the antique that Ryan, Micki & Jack are after this week. Tommy Dunn (David Ferry of Boondock Saints) is the sad sack pugilist who can't win a fight to save his life until he comes into possession of the aforementioned gloves. It's up to the trio to get the accursed things back.
This is the first really memorable episode of the series and I enjoyed it immensely. A bad guy you love to hate, a nice suitably evil antique, and a great ending makes this on a winner by K.O. Even the lip service given to Micki's not often talked about (and better off that way) fiancé during the first few minutes of the episode doesn't put a crimp on my overall enjoyment of it.
My Grade: A-
