  • Nice ending

    7.5
    The finale of this one elevates it considerably in status. Before that, all of that Hamlet stuff was starting to generate a bit of a headache, and Daniel's ongoing snideries made him anything but a sympathetic character. Anyway, it was good to see Mary Astor again. And, although I was thinking that Frank Overton was miscast at first, by the episode's end he seemed to be just the right actor for the situation. The three series leads had precious little to do again in this one. As I say, it was a nice payoff, but dragged on a bit long (it would've fared better I think as a half-hour show).moreless
