Mostly a waste of time. They need to come up with better ideas or re-trace back to previous seasons and continue those 'we'll come back another time' ones. The show feels stale in it's current state with too much pointless rubbish. Once you've figured out the editing patterns etc. it really becomes a chore.

The only big discovery was that lady he was with doesn't like peanut butter.

He played detective with as much logic as an amoeba the majority of the time.

Anyone else numb to the crew member incidents? Fans know 99.9% of the time they are alright but still try and fool the viewing audience with suspense. Cheap tacky tactic.

Isn't it cute how he takes some credit for the re-opening of the case as he now pays as much attention to it as everyone else in the western world. Zilch.

With each new season I feel 'good' eps of this show are becoming rarer.
