Review - Flashpoint Season 3 Episode 3 Just a Man

I'm exhausted right now and I still haven't gotten to Burn Notice and Royal Pains yet, so I'll be very brief.

"Just a Man" is an episode about one man--and that's pretty much it. The prison break out and gang killing stuff was unimportant, allowing for the particular opportunities to arise. Ed's involvement was the biggest engagement the team had with the situation and it was good for the most part.

However, the episode belonged, in whole, to Roger Cross and his amazing portrayal of Anton Burrows, convicted murder who isn't a bad guy. Cross, who most people recognize from 24, was never really allowed to show much range on 24 other than in the sixth season, his role constricted to tough action man. Here, he showed anger, fear, repentance, sadness, and everything in between as he protected the people who would not like him out on parole.

Score: 8.8/10
