  • Not a thriller after all. Ending fizzles out when it's revealed just a couple of punks shoot up the cops for no good reason. Is this a real life case? Watched this repeat on HDNet.

    The epidsode Mini-Mall starts out with a violent shooting of two cops (leaves the viewer wondering why such a massive attack), but eventually the motive makes no sense. The motive was for a guy to avoid going back to jail maybe. This is not a gang related shooting as first thought. Why would a parolee commit a heinous crime against police officers who were on a coffee break and not even looking for him? Was this based on a real life incident? A lot high drama intense machine gunning AK-47 for no apparent reason, not revenge, not a turf war. I guess cops get mowed down just for the fun of it these days or the slighest provocation, but still doesn't make for a good story.
