Of course this has a lot of Space Odyssey Pop References starting from the title of the episode on. In this one, Detective Lassiter is determined to be appointed to Chief of Police, so he sets out to prove himself worthy of the job by trying to solve the murder of the Mayor’s uncle, Archie Baxter.
Funny thing about this episode, it was directed by Kirsten Nelson… so maybe, just maybe Lassie wouldn´t get his wishes.
Seeing the team go vintage is always great, it almost beats the time when Shawn and Gu went Tears for Fears and Miachael Jackson for a duet competition.
The episode even has alter egos!
But now, as oer usual, let´s take a look at the best quotes and moments from the episode.
