The big news this week is, of course, the appearance of Scott Caan’s father James as roguish retired New York cop Tony Archer. He gets plenty of screen time – the first half of the episode is more or less given over to bickering between Steve, Danny and Archer – and takes full advantage, turning the episode into something of a showcase. His chemistry with Stanno is good as well, offering at one point – Bromance Watch! – to be their marriage counsellor.
The episode itself is about the death of an offshore shock-jock played by Dennis Miller. It’s an enjoyable romp which slips down very easily, although I have a suspicion that the actors were having just a little more fun than I was.
