I really wanted to like this episode. It started off good, promising something different for CI, some violence to change the usual Gorenesque method of deciphering the tangled web of clues and pitting the suspects at the end.
Maybe thats why I was far from impressed at the result. The setting is certainly an eye opener. Dont think weve had school basketball team/school though weve had other school/ sports in the past.
The actual conflict between the coach and the potential star's mother just was not strong enough to warrant any connection from me. Because of this the pace of the episode seemed to stay in the mundane and the dialogue was just a bad.
In essence this episode could have been taken from any other week - but it lacked quality in all areas.
