  • Jim and Barney in the big house.

    5.0
    The premise of "Trial by Fury" isn't bad, but the product is poorly executed. The problems with the episode really boil down to one main question - if the prisoners are ready to kill the man they believe is a snitch, why do they so readily listen to the newest arrivals in the barracks when they plead for his life? Jim and Barney are able to win over their fellow inmates far too quickly with no compelling evidence. These same hardened inmates never blink when they see that Jim and Barney were able to smuggle a gun into the barracks and never question Jim's convenient "discovery" of the exonerating evidence.



    Add to that the fact that Rollin and Cinammon are sorely underused. Rollin just gets to add a Latin twang to his voice as the world's most inept prison guard and Cinammon looks lost and clueless as a doe-eyed Red Cross intern.



    Fortunately, the season goes out on a high note, but this one ranks as one of the worst from Season 2.moreless
