  • Comedy chaos reigns which is good time for all.

    Only this show manages to mix flat-out comedy with the police drama so well. The entire thing of the Haz Mat suits was just terrific with Brenda finding out about the deal to put them in anti-terror and naturally upset about it ("Sgt. Gabriel, even under that ridiculous suit and face-hiding helmet, you are a terrible liar!"). I loved Provenza watching them bumble around with an amused look as he did his own job.

    The case itself was already whacky with the OCD witness going nuts for his dental floss and Brenda's figuring it all out was well done. The wife has to be the dumbest suspect the show has ever had before and the wild brawl in the squad room was just classic (seeing Taylor trip the whole group onto the floor and the fire extinguishers come out had me howling). The bits of Brenda's doctor visits were a bit much but I liked her almost crying as the chaos comes in, showing the wild way she works and which is why we love her and this show so well.
