  • good episode...

    The team investigates the disappearance of a stunt man. He was a soldier and his good friend was wounded in a motorcycle accident. In the end, the stunt man was going to kill his friend because that was what his friend wanted. Unfortunately, a girl saw it and killed the stunt man. I loved how the story turned out; I didn't expect it. I liked how they developed the characters. Overall, this episode had a very good story, but no main character development. They focused on the case, which is great, but I would like to see more character development of the main characters.moreless
  • Only relatively exciting storyline; too much Vivian-too little Sam

    About the case, in the beginning to see this man burning and then realizing it was just an act was pretty much the climax of this episode and that´s a little poor.

    All the roughing up of suspects and looking around would have been more interesting if there had been some exciting development, but IMo there wasn´t really.

    Something that bothers me for quite some time now and reached its highest point for now with this episode is that we have an awful lot scenes with vivian and much less with e.g. Sam or Martin.

    I mean, I like Viv but so much of her?? And then she somtimes seemed so indifferent in this season or pissed off for no reason.... well maybe it´s just me.moreless
  • Mark is a stuntman who goes missing while on the set of a low budget film.

    This episode felt so much like the calm before the storm *or so i hope* Mark is a stunt man who, while on the set of a low budget film, goes missing. We're led to believe that he was kidnapped by an ex-con looking for revenge then taken on a whirl wind of random useless possibilities. The story leads us to a friend of Marks whose had some brain damage resulting from a bike accident where the two were dirt biking without helmets. The friend obviously holds some blame against Mark (which is stupid, you didn't have to bike without a helmet you moron!) which helps to contribute to Marks disapperence and subsequent death. When the friend asks Mark to help him end his life Mark agrees only to have things go terribly wrong. I felt this story line could have been good, but there were to many twists and turns and dead ends. Plus the actress who played Marks fiance was terrible.moreless
