After watching this week’s episode, I’m realizing that one of the things I like most about it is how much it makes me think. Disgusting, evil people being allowed to walk free because someone didn’t do a piece of paperwork right? The laws are there to protect the people but sometimes they protect the criminals instead. Yet to take away their rights, we could be taking away our own someday. It’s a double edged sword.
Erin’s solution to have one guy locked up based on the testimony of two psychologists made me just as uncomfortable. I could see how the ramifications of one piece of bad paperwork could lead her to that decision. The fact that it could set a precedent to violate someone’s human rights and have them locked up against their will, it seemed just as bad as allowing a psycho to go free.
I wish I could say that the show also made me dream up a miraculous solution to the problem, but it didn’t. However I do still enjoy that it makes me think about these things. It might help me the next time I’m sitting in a voting booth and trying to decide who and what deserves my vote.
As for the Templar storyline; I’m sorry but it felt like the whole show just stopped when Jamie was working on it. They can add all the mysterious music they want, but watching someone look up stuff on a computer screen still isn’t cutting it for me.
