  • Since their are a lot of cop shows, each one of them aims to find a niche. This show is maturing and finding its place.

    A rapist who attacks in broad daylight is a scary thought. Once again, they load up the plane and head to the scene of the crime. These folks are really starting to rack up some frequent flyer miles.
    This go around, there is a reference to an ancient poem. Normally, this would be the lynchpin on which no which most cop shows would rest their case. However, in this case it turns out to be something the perp does to get noticed. The manner in which the team figures out the modus operandi of the bad guy is fun to watch.
    Oh, and having the kid cry in the kitchen was unlikely. If this guy was as careful as they had said, he would know that a stay at home mom would have an automatic built in distress signal with the kid screaming. But I won't hold that one false step against them.
