  • Very disappointing. Plots get an A, but with the absense of Jordan automatically knocks my grade for this episode to a D.

    4.0
    Jordan was not in this episode. I was very disappointed. Plotline gets an A, but the show is called "Crossing Jordan" not Boston M.Es. The absence of Jordan automatically knocks my grade for this episode to a D. When you have an exciting plot line like this for an episode, the presence of the main character is essential. Jordan's absence distracted me from the interesting plot twists I would have otherwise enjoyed and have been intrigued with. At least having Jordan appear at the end of the episode learning about the plot would have saved the episode. If it was Dr Macy or Bug or Nigel or Lily not being the episode, it would have been different, but the writers and producers wasted a chance at a producing a great, intense, and memorable episode!moreless

    This episode was really good in my opinion, even though they were missing Jordan. This episode starts with a mysterious call bringing Macy and Woody to the crime scene.



    The team gets a new MI, named Devan. She goes to the victim, Brown's house to talk to his wife, and she gets kidnapped. A man comes in to investigate since the body was radioactive, and Brown stole Plutonium and was trying to sell it. When new evidence comes in, the gang gets pushed aside. They find plutonium but it is taken from them. Devan hits her kidnapper and runs out of the room they were holding her in. She finds out she is in an airport and calls Macy. They run to the airport ready to attack. Devan comes up holding the Plutonium and uncovers the plan. The whole scene was planned and all the weapons and Plutonium were fake. It was a test from the NEST to see how they reacted. I loved the part where Macy punched the guy at the end and he's all like "Yeah, its all good."moreless
  • I'm kinda psyched to be able to use this classification; I never have before. I think sometimes shows do zany things when the star isn't available. Why wasn't she in this one?moreless

    When I was in third grade gifted we had to do the most ludicrious creative writing exercises - like write 30 seconds and then pass your story to the right. So you have this crazy mishmash that goes from Hades to Mars and includes all these different ideas. Once, I finished one with an "it's all been a dream" kinda thing. My instructor told me she was ashamed of me. I was 8. While I understand that there have been moments that I have been held to standards that were unreasonably high, and that this may be a flaw I have perpetuated on others, I don't think I'm being too harsh on TV writers. I get that they have to dumb stuff down for the masses, but the ending was the cheapest out ever written. And that's what you have to do to reel it back in when you've gone too far. Yay! I finally get "jumping the shark." Um, thanks for the illustration.moreless
  • What a mess...

    9.5
    I liked it.



    There's a call to the MI's office and a call to the Boston PD requesting Macy and Woody to a crime scene.

    The guy is a Donald Brown, and he has traces of radiation. They run the prints and suddenly a FBI agent appears and tells Macy the whole deal.



    There is a new MI, Devan Maguire. She meets Lily and Macy. Then offers to help Lily with Brown's ID. Devan goes to Brown's house to talk to his wife and gets kidnapped.



    The problem is, Brown stool Plutonium and was trying to sell it.



    Maguire is interrogated. Woody and the guys are always put aside when the find a evidence. They find the Plutonium and some guys came and take it.

    Devan hits the kidnapper and runs, she realizes that she is at the airport and calls Macy.



    Macy, Woody and Nigel runs to the airport and it was all a scenario, it wasn't real. Devan then realizes that Brown's wife wasn't shot, all the guns are empty and the Plutonium is fake.

    The NEST, Nuclear emergency security team or something like this, made everything up.



    I the best part, Garrett punches Agent Scannell. I loved it!!! lol



    Jordan didn't appear on this one...moreless
  • It was a great episode but I really missed Jordan

    9.0
    It was a great episode but I really missed Jordan, I think that if she made an appearance it would have been even better. These are the kinds of cases that can be even funnier if she was around being her stubborn self and opposing Macey.



    There's a new gal at the morgue. She looks ok, I wonder if she'll be staying or if she'll be killed off or if she'll just dissapear after a few episodes. But you gotta hand it to her, she was pretty smart at the end.



    Bug & Peter were funny, I love the way they were acting like third graders as Woody put it. If only Jordan was with them.



    The ending though was the worst, it turns out that they were actually being tested & the whole thing was just a game.moreless
