Like the Quality of this 4th season (DVD)
15 June 2007 | by leplatypusSee all my reviews

This episode is the most memorable for a deceiving 4th season.

I am not saying that the show is awful, but this season lacks originality and doesn't have the emotional power of the 3rd one.

In other words, it is always the same thing: a murder, then a chase for suspect, then the interview room, with slices of personal troubled lives. Maybe the intelligence of the show is good casting and showing that criminal aren't always tugs, thieves, dealers, but it is not enough..

What about bad decisions (put in jail a innocent?)... What about bad cops ? maybe this one is a example but it is a timid one...

One other boring thing for me is their romances... They are all in relations with their job and the events are sometimes "too much": the scarface, the Irish abuser,....

To finish on a good note, the great addition to the 4th season is the coming of detective Kirkendall.
