  • Fools' writing...

    Man, was this bad.

    And I say that as a fan of the show of many years.

    While we could have had a fast-moving, story-arc-stirring ep, we instead got an unfunny filler. This close to the end? Really?

    Gold reminded me of the "funny" episodes of Monk. Impossible to take the main character seriously because of all the "humor" about.

    The yardsticks for cop humor are Barney Miller and Hill Street, and the Gold episode of The Closer... not even close.

    For me, this will be like the "Across The Sea" episode of Lost. It won't ruin what's good about the series, but, especially given the episode's timing, will surely diminish it.
