Well. I liked it. Not the most spectacular LOCI episode, but a solid outing. Jay Mohr was very good. The story was a bit predictable, although I thought it was the son. But it was great to see Goren and Eames--and Mr. D'Onofrio and Ms. Erbe--at the top of their forms. I look forward to the explanation of how they got back.
A solid outing. I was very impressed with Jay Mohr; I thought he handled this role much better than I thought he would. I actually thought the entire supporting cast was excellent. I've always liked Noelle Beck.
Goren seemed in complete mastery of his detective skills and I appreciated the quirky aspects - the "are you texting us?" the flipping of the LiveStrong or whatever type of bracelets they were...
I was a bit irked when the new captain said "step into him" at one point. That's a Deakins thing, imo, lol. ETA: Skittles! I swear I was typing my response as you were typing yours, lol.
Happy to see some place/date cards in between scenes. I did like the end walk in the opener with just G/E.
I thought I saw some foreshadowing when the wife told Goren there was nothing wrong with a happy ever after, not after 20 years of abuse. I liked that touch, and thought that if there had been a shrink scene in this episode, it maybe would've built off that.
Just transposing my comments from the other thread. meh. Can't think of anything to say, good or bad. It was just meh. The story was dull, Erbe looks like she has aged 15 years, and Goren is still fat. And they both have bad dye jobs. meh.
I wish I could think of something to say besides meh. How about blah? I dunno, I admit, I missed all of Seasons 8 and 9, so I never saw it get truly awful, but I had high hopes. All the hype in the past 2 weeks looks like it was just that.... Disappointing, but hardly surprising. I'll give it one more week, but next week is gonna be TiVO. I am not inspired to schedule the rest of my life around mediocre TV.

I thought they were great tonight! And Jay Mohr was fabulous! Also recognized a repeat offender - Nyle's wife was the snobby Mrs. William Davenport in S2's "Tomorrow".
I really do have to watch again to pick up all the finer points. It was SO good to see them back and see Goren poking bodies again - and Alex making those "ick" faces when she had to be near the first corpse. LOL!
