Suffers from heavy-handedness
23 June 2014 | by ltdabSee all my reviews

This episode has a strong premise. A sexual predator is released from prison on parole with chemical castration. The neighborhood resents his presence but is unable to keep him out since he has done nothing wrong during parole. The man seems reformed. Someone in the neighborhood takes matters into their own hands and shoots him. This premise immediately sets up the conflict between the rights of prior offenders versus the security of society.

Unfortunately the characters of the episode are exaggerated in such a way as so telegraph the ending, make the episode predictable, and leave little time for the interesting conflict that sets up the story. Each plot turn makes the story less and less morally ambiguous and the conflict a battle of right and wrong. The scripts ends up being more about a politically ambiguous defense attorney than the balance between the rights of individuals. Truly a wasted opportunity.
