Goofs

Gun handling in movies and real life is very important. One of the four golden rules of gun safety is to always keep your finger off of the trigger until you are ready to fire. In this case you can clearly see that Maggie has her finger on the trigger on two occasions. Once when confronting the passport forger and the second when she retrieves her gun from Claudia. Another of the four golden rules is to know your target and what is behind the target. In this case Maggie is clearly shooting toward her colleagues and could have killed either one. Both of these actions are serious violations of gun safety and should not be depicted in a movie, even if it is just make believe. See more »

Quotes

Henry: So, are we going to talk about what happened?
Maggie: About the fact that you kissed me? I'd rather not right now.
Henry: How about the fact that you kissed me back?
Maggie: I wouldn't say I kissed you back.
Henry: Oh really, what would you call it?
Maggie: Well, you came at me out of the blue.
Henry: Oh, that was hardly out of the blue, you were waiting for me to kiss you.
Maggie: What? I was on a case, the last thing I was thinking about was anybody kissing me.
Henry: Ah, well, you could have fooled me.

Amateur detective, amateur story
10 January 2019 | by Jackbv123See all my reviews

I mentioned in reviewing an earlier installment that it seemed like these productions don't have a technical adviser because they seem to have no concept of police procedures. In this episode, Maggie executes an illegal search and later another. There are many other such problems. And this is not about police procedure but Steve commits blatant sexual harassment (Maggie's resulting tension is palpable), but Maggie just rolls with it.

But so it goes with most of the amateur detective movies. We don't watch them for good police procedure. It's just annoying for it to be so blatant.

Both leads have egos, but Henry's is huge. I can't believe actual police detectives stood there and let him boss them around including telling Steve to get lost.

The mystery in this one is not bad, but the hook in the series is the relationship between Maggie and Henry. That and their banter. So far as this installment begins they are still in stage of dancing around their feelings, but they are starting to recognize that there is something there. There is definite chemistry.
