Review of Episode 1.02 by tvfanatic.com:
For everyone who was concerned last week that the writing was tired or lazy, I hope your fears have been assuaged. Provenza was on fire and the new gal, Sykes, was pretty spot on, as well. She’s a welcome addition to the team and I like how she provides a bit of exasperating enthusiasm for a bunch of otherwise road weary veterans. She’s going to keep them on their toes, much like Rusty will keep Sharon on hers.
