  • Excellent for developing the characters.

    Not a perfect 10.0 show.*

    But an excellent one for showing procedures similar to the real world and how people can and do foul up. Importantly it shows the consequences following that foul up, the knock on effect such a foul up can have on 'on-going' investigations etc. It goes a long way to show that even in a great series as this the characters are fallible. The best part for me was how the characters are developing within the show. This episode stands out from most of the others for this reason alone.

    All in all a great episode to watch.

    The only failing that doesn't make this a perfect 10.0 is at the end of the show - How can Grisom give an immediate 'No' to Sara Sidle's question... In reality he would at least think about it for a couple of seconds!
