This ep starts promisingly enough, what with the running firefight and all.  But then the oboe player goes bonkers, the camera man decides he wants to be the next Scorcese, and the chick-of-the-day thinks she's starring in a Hitchcock movie.  She is seriously freaky, crouching on the floor like some sort of rabid monkey.

And it all goes downhill from there.  The piano won't shut up, the farmhouse looks like it was built by Picasso, and the chick acts nuttier and less likeable frame-by-frame.

They don't even bother trying to save this rehash of "Battle of the Roses" by throwing in a few drool-worthy shots.  The only redeeming feature of this ep is the scene where Lt. Hanley's stunt man climbs up a rope -- at least that was worth paying attention to. 

The only way I'll weep no more is if this episode ends soon -- like right after it begins.
