A Bit Too Easy to Figure Out
7 March 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

When Alice was killed, the young runner was on the verge of immortality. The problem is that he was suddenly on a playing field that made a slight advantage the possible tiebreaker. The young guy's family is really dysfunctional and there are so many x-factors. Unfortunately, in the first episode, he is found hanging, thought to have committed suicide. Sam and her colleagues are working to find a time of death for Alice. One thing that is a bit annoying. Her partners in the lab work long hours and sometimes make little mistakes. She is so unforgiving when this happens. Yet, she has not hesitation about playing fast and loose with legal search and seizure. She makes big mistakes but gets all huffy when called on it.
