  • Detective Raines investigates the murder of a young woman under strange circumstances.

    9.0
    I really liked this pilot. Jeff Goldbloom is a great actor, although he has chosen some bad roles in the past. Goldbloom is definitely doing some channelling for the role of Raines. Raines has the knack for collecting the facts like Joe Friday, the skill and intellect of Raymond Chandler's famous character Phillip Marlow, and the sarcastic humor of Sam Spade or maybe Boston Blackie (who was a famous detective character back in the golden age of radio.) I really liked the end of this episode. I didn't see it coming at all, and I like to think of myself as being pretty perceptive. There were also some very clever thing done in the writing of this show. For instance, how the victim changes in Raines' mind everytime he uncovers another clue. This is a very smart show with a strange sense of humor.
