White Knights It Ain't
1 April 2009 | by HilaryElizabeth9See all my reviews

It's been a while, but there was actually a time when the Soviet Union existed as a communist regime and lived behind an iron curtain. And many of our Russian dance companies would come here with the tightest leashes in history to ensure their talent didn't defect. In this episode, we're at the heart of the ballet world where a Russian company is in LA to do a premiere show. Of course, there's a defector in the midst, but first there's a murder to solve. The episode opens on Jennifer amongst a company of ballet dancers taking direction at the barre. And Stefanie exemplifies yet another one of her multi-talents. I wasn't blown away by this one, but I was impressed by a few things, including the ballet numbers by real Russian and American ballet dancers, and the two fun as hell dance numbers by J&J. The first one was RJ doing a totally indulgent Singin' in the Rain thing, which was pretty entertaining. Then the kicker has the three of them doing a vaudeville number. For absolutely no reason at all whatsoever. Which was fine by me! But ya know what I really loved? Lionel Stander was blacklisted during the McCarthy era, and at the very end of this episode, they opened the kicker with a closeup so close that if it were shot in HD we'd see every tiny little whisker in his 5-o'clock shadow. Don't tell me that little "up yours McCarthy, see I DID work again" was a coincidence.
