    It's not that The Golden Triangle (part 2) is bad, but it feels like filler.



    Part 1 was originally titled Score. Part 2, this episode, was the conclusion. But it pales in comparison. Score, with Candy James stealing the show, and the undercover "security" work of Crockett and Tubbs, provided relief from the ultra-serious vendetta between Castillo and Lao Li.



    This episode provides the seriousness but without much to balance it out, the show drags along. The real problem is being able to guess the ending less than halfway in. And you'll end up being right.



    While Olmos is a good actor, Castillo laden episodes tend to fall flat. His decision to play the character down when confronted by others most of the time prevented sparks from flying at times. You get the sense something bothers Castillo inside, but you never get to see much on the ouside.



    The "let's let Castillo fight it out" seems like the template for Walker Texas Ranger, and that's not a compliment.moreless
