The Price of Sports
12 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

Some insufferable British footballer ends up a vegetable after being poisoned in the locker room. At first it is suspected that an opposing player caused his decline by kicking him in the head three or four times. Frost begins to realize the high stakes of the soccer world and must gain an understanding of those that control the money. There is a secondary plot about a man who leaves a hospital and ends up in a fishing pond. I had a hard time getting caught up in this episode. There are numerous victims and the ultimate dehumanization of sports figures. Nonetheless, it is still a joy to watch Frost parry and thrust with the possible villains.
