FLASHPOINT “Fault Lines” Review

FLASHPOINT  "Fault Lines" Season 4 Episode 6* -  This week’s season finale is a change from the norm. Instead of dealing with a situation out in the field, Team 1 is subjected to an evaluation which includes testing personal readiness and a psychiatric evaluation. Not trusting himself to be objective, Greg asks for an expert to be brought in. The expert (played by the awesome Victor Garber) takes the team through their paces, finding their fears, flaws and insecurities. He suggests that Wordy may be ill or too stressed to do his job effectively, that Spike isn’t coping  with Lou’s death and his family’s reaction to his job, that Jules and Sam’s affection for each other is a danger  to the team, that Ed doesn’t have an outlet  for his stresses and that, perhaps most importantly, Greg isn’t a suitable leader for the team. Worryingly, these observations all ring  true. Somewhere in the midst of all of this, Ed gets a call telling him that Sophie is in labour, but he’s not allowed to leave until the evaluations are over.

FLASHPOINT “I’d Do Anything” Review

FLASHPOINT  "I’d Do Anything" Season 4 Episode 5* -  Team 1 are called in to help the police in a sting operation. Their target is Alex, a criminal selling the credit card  details of rich patrons to his club. Their criminal informant is Alex’s girlfriend , Jackie. But when the sting goes awry and Alex escapes – with Jackie in tow – Team 1 start to question where her allegiances really lie. The plot of the episode wasn’t anything spectacular – you could see the main plot points a mile away. The business partner was always going  to be a red shirt, dying at Alex’s hand as he futiley tries to point the finger of blame at Jackie. The guy trying to help out his boss was always going to be caught by the police, leading to a Thelma & Louise-feeling moment of ‘will they kill themselves to be together?’ But it was done  well . This episode forwent the tension of diving into a completely unknown situation and instead hinged the entire episode on an unreliable character (played brilliantly by Rachel Blanchard  of  Clueless  fame) who was either going to help or hinder Team 1. I’ll admit to being unsure of which side of the fence she would land on; after the teaser scene was replayed, I was almost certain Greg would find them both dead on the plane or in the car, or, after he found Jackie alive and smiling, that he would find Alex dead. The actual ending would usually have been too sweet and cutesy for my tastes but I didn’t mind it, probably because I was actually sympathizing with Alex by that point.

FLASHPOINT ''Jumping at Shadows'' Review Season 3, Episode 15

Jumping at Shadows , the fifteenth episode of the third season of FLASHPOINT was about a little girl who found herself the target of assassins after witnessing the killings of her friend's family three years previously. The assassins have found her again, and now it's up to the SRU to find her before they do. Meanwhile, Greg's son visits his father. He comes with thorns: he wants to take on his stepfather's surname, and he does not want to be legally obligated to see his father. All in all, it was an entertaining episode of Flashpoint. It started off very well and ended with the usual melodramatic shlop Flashpoint seems to be unable to resist. The plotline of assassins going after this one girl was completely unbelievable but the MacGuffin made for such an engaging cat and mouse scenario that it was somewhat forgivable.

FLASHPOINT ''Whatever It Takes'' Review

Whatever it Takes was the thirteenth episode of FLASHPOINT's third season. The plot involved a high school kid on a varsity basketball team from a poor background who is kidnapped, beaten, and then attempts to commit suicide. It was forty minutes of my life I’ll never get back. I’ll start off with the positive. It only lasted forty minutes. The premise was original-if not realistic or well done. And the guest acting was not terrible. There was a minor subplot involving Jules and some guy from her past. This is really dull, seeing as we haven’t gotten to know this fellow beyond twelfth grade grins. He was introduced just to make Sam jealous but three seasons in and Sam and Jules still haven’t gotten it on, Sam and Jules shippers can hardly be annoyed when they start dating other people. It’s a pity the writers are too afraid to go down the Sam-Jules route, as the actors have chemistry and they’re two of the least consistently annoying characters on the show.

FLASHPOINT ''Follow The Leader'' Review Season 3, Episode 12

Don't you just love white supremacy plot lines? Season three, episode 12 of FLASHPOINT, Follow the Leader  followed two brothers who found their way into a white supremacy group. This group decides to get rid of immigrants by blowing them up. Two of these followers are brothers, Trent (the aggressive guy) and Danny (reluctant follow, loyal brother). Despite its plot, this episode was less about race and more about parental angst; Trent and Danny's father committed suicide when he was replaced at work by immigrants who work for less money. But Danny isn't really racist; look (pointing) he has a black girlfriend! That totally gets him off the hook. Danny still joins Trent's white supremacy posse to keep an eye on him. When he learns this supremacy group intends to blow up a whole lotta immigrants including Jewish joints and Chinese neighbourhoods, Danny anonymously tips off the SRU. To Read More Click Here .
