I just tried to watch this episode today. I put it off because of the previous horrible episode. This one was nearly as unwatchable.

It was kind of boring. Beyond that, I just couldn't accept this thing about giving the robot a good charge. I mean, here he is working on perhaps the most important case his department has, an important member of perhaps his department's "a-team", and the department can't change his priority to give him a little juice. Lives hang the balance. If someone were to die because the cops couldn't give the robot a few dollars worth of electricity, things would really go bad for everyone there. The captain is incompetent. Besides, every other electronic gizmo is up and running. But, they can't spare a little power. That whole thing just ended up being a ridiculous plot device.

Then later, when Klennex is sent to see someone from CSI, and that guy happens to be the suspect--well that was just too much. The police know who he is and what he looks like--they know his face. But there he is, pretending to be one of them.

Overall, there was way too much stupid and sloppy writing in one episode. Stupid and sloppy seems to be how this series rolls.

[Spoilers] This episode was generic garbage slapped together.
No advancement of major story arc
Police Procedural thrown out the window. Victim says who it was and they find him by looking up.
No in-depth look at Kennex or Dorian from any angle like several of the other episodes.
No romance with Stahl.
Generic buddy roommate setup that will be stupid and contrived.
Stupid power level gimmick - he has problems at 50% including decking an officer at 50% charge and uses up that 50% in a day of sitting in a car, but never has had this problem on any other episode including taking down a building of terrorists? He loses 2% just walking over to a building. Please tell me someone fixes his battery issue next week.

This was the absolute worst episode so far. I've enjoyed the show up to this point, but if this is what I should expect, you can expect me to change the channel.

Yeah, I gotta figure this is one of the clunkers they pushed further back in the schedule.

Still no talkback on AH. What the hell guys? Do you need a volunteer to cover it? Would be a pleasure for me.

Thanks antdude. I would love to help - inconceivable there is nothing as of yet. That was a fantastic episode.

I know, I know ...I keep using that word. But I am pretty sure I know what it means. ;)
