  • A bit of a departure, but...

    ...I liked it.

    In the end, Chance got a two-fer in the dead bad guy department, but no closer to the personal redemption he seeks. Or does he?

    This outing was far more concentrated on the drama quotient, and far less in the to-be-expected humour department, but still effective in moving the "How Did They Get Here From There" story line along. I guess all we needed from the writers was a beautiful and filthy rich benefactor to bring out the back story. Painfully slow getting here but worth the wait.

    The Ames character does concern me. Her part in the episode tonight was be expected. There were no surprises; no hook to make her worth investing in as a viable member of this team. Not yet anyway.

    Shame that the beleaguered wife couldn't know the truth about her louse of a husband, but effective in making the viewer feel Chance's pain.

    The best line in the show goes to Guerrero; "oohhh, a lawyer AND and investment banker? I'm gonna enjoy this"...

    Some thugs get all the luck!
