    Not really a fun of the whole Summer thing, so her scenes did not really interest me, but Rigsby trying to play the drug dealer, and the case throughout the episode involving "Turbo Wolf" definitely had me intrigued. Good to see this show try to skew a bit younger tonight.
  • you call that a mid-season finale?

    pretty weak way to break for the holidays.

    the first four mid-season finales were, "red brick and ivy," "throwing fire," "jolly red elf," "fugue in

    all great episodes that left you intrigued and with new info to chew on. this seemed like filler.

    since the series is taking a hit in the ratings, you'd think they'd break off with something really powerful. instead we get one of the cookie cutter episodes: jane with the pot-growers -- as forgettable as jane with the fashion people, jane with the transvestites, jane with the musicians, jane with the school teachers -- all rather boilerplate. they can do and should do much better. (i always give all episodes a ten just in case some widget from cbs is i love this series.moreless
