  • They could have done a lot better.

    I will say this in defense of this episode, it could have been a lot worse. The upside was that I got to see Munch speaking Russian, Elliot being hit on by a Russian prostitute, and a lot of drunk people making fools of themselves. The downside was that I just didn't care. The murdered man was basically a shmuck who was a sex addict and cheated on his wife at every opportunity. Most of the wrong turns the detectives took were boring and so obviously wrong that I was yelling at the T.V. Toward the end I even wondered why I was watching it. Luckily a scene between Olivia and a main suspect came on and saved the day. This was not a must see, but see it if you must.
