Great episode, was so wonderful to see the great performer Carol Brunette...

Great episode, was so wonderful to see the great performer Carol Brunette as part of this program. She really showed her professional maturity, bringing a song to a police drama which has probably the most liked historic, opening song. A bit of a tear-jerker, yet well done. Again, as I believe to be a proved point, that being a comedian requires the greater acting skill, she is truly an American classic, excellent in both arenas. A bit eccentric, yet it is very typical for the role, she showed a rebellious side in some sensitive areas; however, I believe it also was in context with the secret that she was trying to carry herself. The normal cast did a great job of making it a sidebar, while performing their on-going investigation. Also brought a little insight that not all family gatherings turn out as an ideal, yet there can be give and take under the most difficult circumstances. Thanks to your casting director for having so a great a performer as part of the cast. I enjoy the show, it has done well to remember it's tradition.
