Bored to Death Season 1, Episode 5: "The Case of the Lonely White Dove" - Recap

Bored to Death isn't boring me, but after last night's extremely slow episode, it's close. The premise of the show coupled with a really great cast speaks to the potential Bored to Death has, but save for last week's episode (the one with Parker Posey and still the best so far), there haven't been many high points. Last night's installment had some of those moments, but for the most part, I didn't give a crap about the white dove or why she was lonely.

While Jonathan's latest case (trying to find a Russian mobster's one night stand) had potential, the constant parallels to his non-relationship with Suzanne that Jonathan tries to draw from each case are becoming annoying.

The fact that Suzanne was even in this episode was bothersome - we haven't seen her since the series premiere and there really is no connection between her and Jonathan. I don't care if they get back together and more importantly, I don't think I want them to. The "private detective for hire" premise of the show is hanging by a thread as it is and bringing Suzanne back into the fold could easily kill it completely.
