  • Good, but just no cigar (too predictable and unrealistic)

    7.5
    Watching the episode, you will quickly see that its all about Danny struggling keeping his macho attitude. He gets personally involved when his wife is kidnapped, after he witnessed a kingpin killing.



    (Spoilers)

    The episode starts promising. Quick, the tension is build up, as you realize it will become personal to the family. But then, a in the plot that is too easy. Because of the limited time, unrealistic CSI Miami storylines are needed to keep it to 1 episode. My son and I are talking about "pulling a CSI Miami", a modern day version of the "deus ex machina", when a highly unrealistic turn in the plot is needed to solve the case. And I believe that a hard core criminal giving up crucial information in a split second is a good example.



    The plot asks for 2 episodes. Or a different way to get the information. The episode needs some unexpected turns and harder work to solve the case. No more pulling a CSI Miami please!moreless

      Linda Reagan: Oh, you think you've got me all figured out, don't you, Danny Regan? Actually, I just called to tell you that I love you.
      Danny Reagan: Aaaah, I love you too, Babe.
      Linda Reagan: (opens the fridge door) And I need you to bring home some milk.

    • (at the family dinner after the conclusion of the case)
      Frank Reagan: I would, ah, like to say something. I don't want to get corny, but I would just like to say that, ah, I feel very lucky to have you all here and I know your mother, your grandmother, would feel the same way. I know people don't make time for this kind of thing nowadays but, ah, I'm glad we do. Family is what makes us strong.
