Did You Know?


When Misty Knight visits Cockroach in the hospital she tells him she used to see murder victims outlined in chalk. While the practice of outlining dead bodies in chalk was in vogue a century ago, the advent of forensic scientific investigations in the early 20th century revealed that chalk or paint contaminated crime scenes. No one is sure exactly when it stopped, but it probably hasn't actually happened since the 1960s. Despite the passage of three generations, however, a chalk outline is still a widespread symbol associated with murder. See more »

If there was a little more focus on how the characters react to the situations, the whole show would feel more real and dramatic.

I don't think the fault lies in the acting (which is mostly average), but instead the writing and directing.

The directing isn't bad but most of the time it's pretty uninteresting. I noticed some of the shots and filming choices in this episode were a little awkward. But it's not the end of the world.

The writing this season is where most of the problems lie. There seems to be a major lack of focus. There is potential in some of the concepts here, but the lack of creativity and interesting characters spoils that potential.

I did however enjoy the scenes between Misty and Coleen as there were some fun interactions. Overall the two actors/characters have a good chemistry.

The villain hasn't yet made an impression on me. He doesn't seem like much of a threat and so far fails to be interesting.

Mariah is supposed to be a villain right? It just feels like she's not really done much yet to effect the show. It's a shame her daughter is such a plain character. If they made her unconventional or mysterious, the entirety of that plot would improve.
