I liked this episode, with Charlie having his little backstory in the way that Don did in the episode that came before this one. Living in the house his entire life, Charlie found it heartbreaking to learn that his father might sell the house that he grew up in. I enjoyed watching the ending of the episode when Charlie decided to buy the house from his father.
I thought that the case in this episode was an interesting one, involving Charlie in a very early and simple way. I thought the kiddnapping scene was a little random, with the mother getting thrown to the ground instead of just being pushed into the van and taken away as well...but its all good.
If they could just get a little more personal in this show and a little less involved with the cases, I think the show would be one of the big sleepers of the television drama seriess.
