  • Better, but stop with the Megan Mirror

    It's getting better, this time I didn't know who was the killer before hand so it must be a good sign. I just hope they would stop making each case some kind of mirror for Megan. Last episode we got "he loved his daughter so much he killed her", now we get "you have to earn the right" to be a mom or "sometimes it's hard to be alone". Finally, I wish they would stop with the music they launch EVERYTIME Megan makes a new discovery. Seriously, good.

    I think I'll watch several other episodes to give my final impression. It wouldn't be the first time I didn't like a show before getting addicted to it.moreless
  • Blunder

    I have started watching this series recently and I like it but come on, a bullet when fired has a temperature of minimum 500 degrees...and at this high temperature, it cannot be a carrier of fungi.
  • Ugh! Spoilers may lie ahead. But, not to worry, this show was a rotten tomato even before the actors got the script.

    I tried to give this show a chance, because I loves me some Dana Delaney, but its time to pull the plug on this abomination. Each week's story line is less believable than the last. In this week's episode, the killer's identity hinges on pigeon poop residue on a bullet and cocaine traces in vomit? Give me a break! The characters are largely wooden and sound like they're delivering their lines after having been forcibly deprived of sleep for weeks. And none of it is remotely believable. As has been previously pointed out, the show is full of cliches and the producers and script writers think the audience has no intelligence whatsoever. If anyone is still watching after this particular disaster of an episode, I might have to agree with them on that. As for me, I'm done with it.moreless
  • Getting to know the supporting cast made this a really fun episode that allowed Megan's team to become more then just 2 dimensional characters.

    Again a really entertaining episode. I worked out the case quite early on but I enjoyed how Megan figured it out and especially the opportunity this episode gave us for the supporting roles to become more then just mindless drones at Megan's beck and call.Only draw back is I still dont know their names.

    The best relationship development was between Megan and the 'Detective'- I like that a friendship and respect is forming here. They butt heads but their is now mutual respect and congratulations shared as each contributes to the case. I hope to see this relationship continue to form.

    Megan's potential love interest, her partner (and lets be honest thats why he exists) is probably the most uninteresting character. While we learnt about his background as a foster child, I just dont care about him. He really aggravates me in that he acts like a know it all with his usual criticism of Megan's personality and of the supporting cast he is the most bland. That said he doesnt take away from the episode and at least his most recent criticism allowed Megan to open up to her colleagues. A great installment that I really enjoyed. :)moreless

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Detective Bud Morris: I'm just... saying, Sam spoke to Elena's father, and he didn't know of anybody she was seeing. But if she did want to see somebody under the radar, that motel would be the perfect place.
      Dr. Megan Hunt: I think he would know. They were living under the same roof.
      Peter Dunlop: (referring to Megan) But even the most observant person in the world can miss what's going on right in front of 'em.

    • Dr. Megan Hunt: How are you and your wife doing?
      Detective Bud Morris: Well, I can't go back, not for a couple of days at least. It's just I'm not ready to give up, you know? And not, not just because I'm Catholic. I loved Jeannie since the day we met. It'll all work out - in the end.
      Dr. Megan Hunt: It's the middle that's the hard part.
