Trivia

Sofia Vassilieva missed a few episodes in season 5 because she was shooting My Sister's Keeper (2009). She had to shave her head for the role and Patricia Arquette supported her by doing the same, which explains why the two of them had short hair at the beginning of season 6. See more »

Great first episode
5 January 2005 | by (Northern California) – See all my reviews

I was very impressed by the pilot. It quickly set up how this woman got into helping solve crimes. We did not have to slog though a long set-up, because it got quickly to the action.

I liked seeing her husband and daughters. Her husband was portrayed as a very supportive man. I already care about how she will handle this atypical job and be with her family. Will she have to do a lot of traveling, being away from home?

She is a strong character. I liked how she stood up to the sheriff (or police chief, whomever). And with moments like "Tell him you know about the kiss." we see that she is also very perceptive with a quick mind.

In spite of her strengths, she also showed a natural reaction to being odd/different. I also appreciated her frustration when she felt that what she was trying to do was for nothing.

This episode had good acting, drama, suspense, humor. And it wasn't creepy. I'm really looking forward to future episodes.
