ratings are based on a 5 star scale unless otherwise noted.
Review by YoshiSan
Well, well, well. We have a case of someone
not taking things, but leaving them? Quite honestly, Buck
Oliver comes to mind, and the writer of this episode clearly
knew that Buck Oliver would come to mind. But instead of
playing around with that a little, within the first five
minutes Buck has been cleared. Well, after Buck was cleared
I wasn't really interested in hearing the rest of the
episode. Without giving out any spoilers, it was your case
that had no consequence to the overall Odyssey plot
whatsoever. It was mediocre, easily figured out with some
thought to it. I enjoy Jones & Parker cases, but this one
was less than satisfactory. It could have done some things
here and there, set some bigger plot up, but no. We'll just
say that it was no one of consequence, unlike the fact that
Vance's father was mixed up in crime along with Vance in
album 59. That was of consequence.
Overall this episode was 3 stars because of the mediocrity
of the case, the characters involved, and the overall
consequence of the episode.
