A pretty good story this week dealing with the subject of looting antiquities and gold from museums in places like Iraq. In this case some gold and antiquities are taken from a museum and imported into the country by thieves who then pin the deed on a war veteran.
Peter and Neil must figure out the scheme from a number of suspects including a former government official who now works for a security firm and a well known TV interviewer who was embedded with the veterans unit in Iraq.
The biggest problem with this episode was the highly emotional level of one of the participants. The performance was almost absurd and who knows if it was the writing, the directing, or the acting that was to blame. Supposedly it was so bad that Peter could not go home. Once when Peter asked completely reasonable questions the wife broke into tears because her husband maybe was cheating. So they portrayed this women as an emotional wreck.
The other problem was the reporter who withstood shooting in Iraq and also pressures people for a living couldn't keep a straight face for a few minutes. Luckily the story was pretty good otherwise. Maybe a little too simplistic, but the development of the relationships overall for the important characters was really good. It was nice to see Peter and Mozzie bond and let's face it in the long run it really helps Neil that everyone is as above board as possible. Thanks for reading...
