  • It's all downhill from here

    8.0
    That prescient line ("it's all downhill from here") was actually used in 'Pawns of Power' a few weeks earlier, but it seemed to fit 'The Chasers'.



    I rated this a "jump the shark" moment, yet gave it an "8" anyway.



    "The Chasers" still gave us the volatile flavor of the early series, but this was the first episode I watched and thought, "wait, I KNOW there's something wrong with the show, now...!"



    Pepper is now being rendered incompetent.



    Her fight with the purse-snatcher is absurd; her fight with the guy burning the apartment and stuffs her in the closet while she yells "let me out of this...this PLACE" about 30 times; her being pushed out of a rigged-to-go-boom car with barely a muscle flexed; her getting shot at by Ida Lupino and never even revealing her own .38 Police Special...



    And her hair.... oh, GOD, what was beginning to happen to her hair !?!



    Oh, my.



    At least you could watch this episode (about insurance fraud, by the way) and laugh, but's that's not realy what I wanted from "Police Woman"---- and it never really recovered.



    And wasn't Ian McShane a looker back then?moreless
