Sepinwall’s full review of the finale here. I remember this critic as one of the people quoted in the pre-season show, and I liked his comments then. Him, and the woman from CourtTV, which inexplicably was renamed TruTV … evidently, to show more episodes of “Cops.” (Bizarre digression: They should replace “Cops” with this.)
