DVD Wholesale Quick Overview:
Lethal Weapon Season 2 Episode 21, “One Day More,” is a pretty mediocre finale. For a show that used to be able to provide a good dose of excitement, this hour is sorely lacking in it.
The promo gave away Trish’s capture, and that doesn’t happen until about halfway through the hour. That should have been the part where things got exciting.
If it was earlier during the hour, then we could have really explored the emotional impact that her kidnapping had on everyone. However, that’s not the case. It’s over before it began.
Against all odds, Lethal Weapon season 2 has not only been an overall improvement on the show’s first year, but it’s turned into one of the most entertaining procedural cop shows on television and it’s a ratings hit, at that. “One Day More” is an exceptional season (series?) finale that expertly wraps up all of the season’s lingering plot threads in an impressive way. The consistent source of drama that comes from Riggs’ relationship with his father gets to be put to rest, but all of this progress can’t help but feel a little bittersweet.
Earlier today the news broke that Clayne Crawford has been fired from Lethal Weapon and that the series is in search of a replacement in case a third season renewal happens (which was a sure thing at one point). This is seismic news for the show, which is now seriously in jeopardy because let’s be honest, it’s all about the chemistry between Crawford’s Riggs and Wayans’ Murtaugh. Many were initially skeptical that this show would be able to succeed under the shadow of its movie franchise counterparts, but Lethal Weapon has slowly grown into something that’s different and special. To try and recreate that magic again just seems like a lost cause. So while “One Day More” is the perfect, fitting swan song to Lethal Weapon’s second season, it might also be the end of the show for most of its audience.
Martin Riggs’ devotion to his dead wife, Miranda, has nearly killed him several times since Lethal Weapon‘s debut. But in the Season 2 premiere, his love for his police partner — and vice-versa — proves a lifesaver.
At the start of “El Gringo Loco,” Riggs is still MIA in Baja, Mexico, two weeks after the events of the finale. Murtaugh is there, too, searching for his co-worker on his own dime — much to the consternation of Trish back at home. But when shots are fired in a fancy hotel and a body is thrown out the window, Murtaugh has an inkling he’s close.
