  • Mixed feelings: some parts very poor, and some very good indeed

    Somehow this episode had two faces: one was bright, smart, clever, intriquing and the other rather dull, uninteresting and most of all not credible. The 6.5 points I gave it is an average of 10 for all the action in the isolated village, and 3 for the Italian adventures of the pair of journalists. Some may say the isolated place is impossible, but the place is a convention we accept. Everything else is happening in the real world and we have the right to expect it is credible and logical. Well, it is not. How come the journalists flew to Italy? What made them go to the funeral mass? The mafia-like guys, why do they take interest in the journalists. The love between ambasador's daughter and a mobster (if he is a mobster)? It looks like one million coincidences, which never happen in real life.

    I would have had a good time watching this episode if it had not been for all this "real life" unreality.
