  • Kind of slow, nice but should have given more Cathy Vincent together time. :)

    Brigit O'Donnell's book 100 Days parallels the story of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet so it is understandable why someone like Vincent would be interested in meeting her. Also by looking at the complete series one can see that it could be seen as foreshadowing of the fairytale couple's own fate. It was a pretty good episode but I feel that it focused a little too much on Brigit O'Donnell's story and not enough on Vincent and Catherine. One night where they could have spent so much time above when half of the night was wasted because of the crime of the week. As much as I love the actress who played Brigit O'Donnell it would have been nice to have seen more of the adventures Cathy and Vincent had on their one whole night above than just something tagged on at the very end.:(
