Memphis Beat Episode Recap: "Polk Salad Annie"

This week's episode is all about finger lickin' goodness and family drama as Dwight and his crew try to solve an attempted murder amidst the backdrop of a tasty Memphis barbecue fest. The opening shot features our favorite detective by day/crooner by night, Dwight, belting out the title Elvis tune "Polk Salad Annie" saying he's going to tell us a story. Alright then, here we go!

Our first scene is over at Fat Red's barbecue where the boys of Lt. Rice's precinct (Dwight, Whitehead, Lightfoot and Greenback) are happily gnawing on Red's award-winning, juicy, succulent ribs. For the second time watching this show, I found myself practically having to be restrained from joining this scene. I guess it's the Texan in me, but show me some people sucking down ribs and I'm a lost woman!

Enough drooling, back to the story. We meet Red and his sister, Analise, (Melanie Lynskey - I was immediately suspicious of her knowing she plays a cuckoo bird on Two & A Half Men) and just as the boys are polishing off another round, Dwight notices a shifty looking fellow casing the joint. Before he can hold up the register, Greenback tackles him saying, "BBQ is a religion (and) that makes this a place of worship." Respect the barbecue, son!
