  • Shouldn't Jane be in jail for life? That was the most silly episode yet. he endangers hundreds of people every time he touched those vials. Thats not really worth catching a killer. This show is going downhill fast.

    That was so far from reality it was difficult to watch without disgust. No one would allow a consultant or a cop to be that near such dangerous chemicals. The safety of an entire building of people was compromised every time Jane went near those vials. He had no idea how they react even by being gently shaken. If that had really occurred Jane would be in jail for the rest of his life. A hoax like that is very illegal and for good reasons. I know this show is mostly just comedy, but the message it sends is sad. Catching a murderer is far less important then the safety and happiness of people still living. Having a carnival worker handling biochemicals that could kill an entire city is not really a good idea even if it leads to the conviction of some guy that killed someone. Patrick made a fool of himself far more then he made a fool of anyone else this episode. Maybe some better writers are in order.
