They're Getting' the Band Back Together, but This One's No Mission from God.
3 April 2009 | by HilaryElizabeth9See all my reviews

I was totally not impressed with this episode. Jonathan's old friend is jamming Dixieland Jazz while Jonathan plays some serious notes on his old, prized possession trumpet. Turns out there are two more to the old band that join them for a gig at a local joint. I was turned off by the condition of the trumpet. I know it's a little thing, it's just a prop, right? No! They make this big megilla of the horn being a special instrument, it used to belong to the main antagonist in this ep, and it's clearly a piece of crap. Not vintage, not character ... crap. Then it gets a dent, and Jonathan doesn't freak. Sorry, if my old clarinet from high school were to get damaged, I'd get mad. On the other hand, I really appreciated how RJ must have really spent a good deal of time trying to get the fingerings to look realistic. They were wrong, no question, but they were good enough, and that took a lot of effort. There's also a great shot of Jennifer taping the performance ... with a cassette tape recorder and microphone! Hahahaha! Then there's the unravelled answer to the mystery, which is actually quite creepy. THAT was good. I wish they'd gotten there a lot sooner -- and I was stumped, so they did a good job there -- and made it more about that plot point and less about the band.
