Goofs

At the scene of the first bank robbery, when Friday and Gannon are being briefed by Officer Whitman, the three are obviously in a studio -- with flimsy, off-yellow, sound stage walls as a backdrop. But, then, when the camera cuts to a wider shot they are suddenly standing in front of the bank -- with big, metal framed, glass windows behind all three of them. See more »

Worthe seeing just for the ending...
18 November 2009 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

The episode begins with Friday and Gannon responding to a call about a bank robbery (note the weird police light used by the team). When they arrive, the robbers are long gone. The pair consisted of a man and a younger woman in a yellow dress. Eventually, the trail leads to the woman and her story about how she got involved with the robbery is unusual, to say the least. She was apparently kidnapped and forced to participate, but it sure is hard to believe--especially since when police first question her, she lies about everything. And, when she finally does come clean about the robbery, she STILL lies and holds back information--and it's hard for the police to believe anything she said. However, when another woman participates in a robbery...with exactly the same story as the first, then it becomes apparent that the women were, in fact, innocent.

Overall, this is a completely average episode except for the ending. How the robber is caught is actually pretty funny...and oddly, the Friday and Gannon had nothing to do with it! Worth seeing just for the ending. Plus, Friday's comment to the crook is priceless.
