Not everyone's cut out for Hollywood
26 July 2017 | by jhudson-11704See all my reviews

Glad to see a heist episode with this crew as they attempt to steal some uranium. It was great how they had to bring along some ringers and how things didn't go completely as planned. Which might be cliché, but it did work well in this episode. I loved how it was Jarvis who had to handle the uranium and he acted exactly how I thought he would in this episode.

Carter's theft of Hugh Jones' key into the Roxxon facility was also fun with the memory erasing machine. Ray Wise is a fantastic actor and he had great lines, especially when he kept coming to.

Marino's Manfredi was also amazing. His mob boss character was humorous and terrifying as he had to savagely beat one of his men because he disrespected his guest. What an opening to what I hope is a recurring character.

While I did like Rose and Samberly coming along, their "romance" seemed really forced and seemed like something that used as an excuse to use more of them. I did, however, like how Rose is apparently a complete badass in fighting. Samberly, while funny, is just a bit too goofy. Just because he is a genius doesn't mean he has to be a clumsy geek.

+ Manfredi + Unusual Heist + Carter steals from Jones - Samberly just too weird - Rose/Samberly romance makes no sense

Final Score: 8.0/10
