  • An episode about the contrast

    9.0
    A great episode that relies a lot on the differences between the two lead characters, Cagney being the hard cop and Lacey more of a social worker. (That latter mentions this herself; see quotes)

    I find Lacey's emotional reacton to the plight of the Eduardo a lot more believable than Christine's stoic acceptance. The episode does make a good point of showing the absurdities of certain legal and immigration matters. The unusual ending tells you where the producers' loyalties lie.moreless
