Major Crimes “The Ecstasy and the Agony” Review

Major Crimes (TNT) Episode 4 The Ecstasy and the Agony (2)

Well, it happens with every show. They hit a point in the season when a throw away episode is needed and “The Ecstasy and the Agony” was that episode for Major Crimes. Generally Major Crimes actually has character development, interesting moves between characters, and interesting things to pay attention to during the episodes.

Last night was pretty much just a waste of time. Major Crimes turned from a drama to comedy (sort of) and instead of caring about anything that happened to anyone during “The Ecstasy and the Agony” I found myself performing a home manicure and pedicure.

The investigation surrounding the murdered husband was just bland. No one seemed to care that they were even under investigation for murder, and since wifey was in bed with the life coach, she couldn’t care less that her husband was dead and gone. Just boring, boring, boring.

There isn’t much else to say about Major Crimes this week. While I wasn’t too keen on Rusty joining the crew, he seems to be fitting in nicely with Sharon and their interaction is something that I look forward to each week. Her line coaching on how to “look Catholic” actually had me laughing out loud. It’s so true, to appear Catholic one just needs to carry around an air of complete and utter guilt (I was raised Catholic. I know these things to be true).

Guest star Michael Weatherly (NCIS) did a great job as the off his rocker life coach who was taking his duties a little too far with his client’s wife, but other than his stand out moments I say again – boring, boring boring.

Here’s hoping next week will be better, Major Crime fans!

    Well, all I can say is that any show with Michael Weatherly and Jon Tenney in the same episode is enough by itself to get my pulse up!
