First and foremost YAY for some Jamie screen time. Unfortunately, just not enough Dr. Hathaway.
As for the episode.. a little blah. As soon as we saw the housekeeper I knew it was Olena. The series concept has potential, but it hasn't quite clicked yet for me. I think Eric Mccormack is actually doing a nice job. Rachel Leigh Cook on the other hand..her delivery just seems so bland. Most of her lines just seem delivered with the same emotion, or lack there of. I'm not buying her as the tough, clever FBI agent. Jamie gave us more facial expression and body language in his brief stint than she did the entire episode. Part of it is the writing for her. Her character jumps to conclusions. she arrests the guy in the band because he has a blue camero like the one seen outside the house. She accuses the real Jolene of having an affair with Frank. Really? Everything about the character seems flat.
Hope to eventually see Dr. Hathaway in the classroom. I would sign up for his class.
But..kudos to TNT, my new favorite network, for finding characters with a Dr. in front of their names for Jamie to play.
But please increase your wig budget if you are going to continue having characters wear them. The wigs were pretty awful in this episode.
