Missing are the shows key ingredients tongue and cheek suspenseful attributes of this series' more serious episodes.
Though light-hearted and silly this episode is certainly not a complete disappointment by any means. The seal is humorous and will generate a few laughs especially at the very end of the episode. Other comical portions of this episode are where the drunk shows up at police headquarters. The comment made on how many bottles of booze he's holding should generate a good laugh or two. Even Craig Stevens himself exemplifies (what appears to be) a few non scripted smiles. If you've got the disc be sure to take the Trivia test on this one.
