February 19, 2007: The Average Punch Is Under 20 MPH Season 5, Episode 16

Why is Delko back so soon? It seemed to be the question on everyone's mind this episode - including his. He even said, "I came back too soon." Well, yeah. I suppose it's one thing to not have a scar or any swelling after getting shot in the neck, but it's another to not even be limping after getting shot in the leg. If House has taught me anything, it's that you don't come back that easily from a leg injury. I nitpick because I love. I liked this episode. As all the regular readers are no doubt aware, I have not been a fan of the global focus of this season of the show. But this week we had what CSI: Miami does best: narcissism and nutcases. Here, Dr. Lasker was the narcissist, and Heather Crowley's family and boyfriend were the nutcases. (We could consider Horatio to be both, but we pick on him every week, so I'm going to give him a reprieve.) I appreciated the tighter scope of this story. One murder spawned another and led to an investigation into seven more - though we were blessedly spared the tedium of six of those. Seriously, though, how screwed up was poor Heather Crowley? Her boyfriend slept with her mother, which forced the boyfriend to kill Heather's father. This angered Heather so much that she killed her mother. One thing I don't understand, though: If her father was knocked out cold by the motorcycle helmet, how did he get covered in blood? I did really like the horror-movie opening, however. It's been a while since this show did something creative like that. Plus, the look that Heather gave her boyfriend as they were put into separate cop cars spoke volumes. Actually, it mostly said, "This is all your fault." And you know, I can't say that I blame her for that. I kind of wish we had gotten to see more of Dr. Lasker. Doctors killing patients in their care is a concept that has always freaked me out (and I don't think I'm out of line in saying so). He seemed so completely unrepentant that he really embodied the ideal of the "cold-blooded killer." Finally, the first person that can tell me the name of the song that played over the closing montage gets a gold star. Aw, heck, a gold star to all of you for sticking through the season until a decent episode came along. As an extra gift, I'll leave you with your Horatio moment of Zen: - "I just needed some time to point the finger." - "Yes, well that finger is now pointing at you." show less
