Series 2 - Episode 5 Let It Ride

Review

Lethal Weapon walks a line, balancing action with comedy and sentimental dabs of drama. Sometimes it can’t spin all that at once so a plate or two crashes to the floor, and this is one of those episodes – crockery everywhere.

The root of the problem is probably the return of cheesy twerp Leo Getz, the low-rent, ambulance-chasing lawyer who cropped up in an earlier episode. When a friend of his is killed at Santa Anita racetrack, he gets tiresomely involved in the investigation.

More importantly, the battered airstream trailer Riggs lives in on the beach gets towed away, recalling troubled childhood memories for him. That whole “Riggs is sane now” arc didn’t last long.

Summary

Murtaugh and Riggs investigate a death that occurred moments before the victim's bet won a horse race. Leo Getz insists it's a homicide and aids in the investigation. Meanwhile, Murtaugh updates his will, while Riggs struggles to come to terms with his past. Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans star.
