Trivia

There are a couple of allusions to Cobie Smulders's former series How I Met Your Mother (2005). In the flashback scenes after a night of drinking, she says "But, um" several times. In How I Met Your Mother: Jenkins (2010), her character saying that phrase was the subject of a drinking game. Also, her client is given a false phone number by a girl at a bar. In How I Met Your Mother: How I Met Everyone Else (2007), one of the other characters when first introduced got a fake phone number from a girl at a bar. See more »

Goofs

When the hold-up man first enters the mini-mart, he racks the shotgun, but no shell is ejected, meaning the gun is now loaded and ready to fire. The shotgun is not fired during the course of the robbery. Dex then takes the shotgun away from him, racks it again, then points it at him. No shell was ejected when she racked the gun, meaning the robber entered the store with an empty shotgun. See more »

A perfect second episode that delivers on expectations, and then some!
3 October 2019 | by TheTopDawgCriticSee all my reviews

I can't think of how this episode could've been any better, and I certainly didn't find any flaws.

It was refreshing to see the start of Dex and Grey's back-story, that also contributes to their character development. Dex's "case" was very unique, enjoyable, and not as "Hollywood" (flying car chases and crazy fights) as the first episode, which is a good thing to have a break from the Hollywood monotony and cliches every now and then. Then there was Grey's "side-conflict" added to the story. The writers successfully and impressively managed to have 3 stories play out in this 1-hour episode.

Directing was again exceptional, and all actors are starting to grow on me, especially the even more impressive Cobie Smulders that showed multiple sides of her character perfectly.

I have a feeling this show will be one of the few elite successes of all the new (and some current) TV shows. Mad props to the writers, and can't wait to see what they come up with on next weeks episode!

A perfect 10/10 from me!
