* "DOUBLE TROUBLE"
Cowboys, Sex and Violence
November 12, 2000

There's actually three mysteries solved in "Double Trouble." First, there's the motives of the really bizarre posse that is after Nash. Jason hires a Clown and a Cowboy to kill Nash, but as for the two Rodeo Riders in the beginning, who knows? It's all too bizarre, along with Big Tiny impersonating Nash, and doing a magic act in a Children's Ward??? Then the Clown who tries to kill Nash with a pair of cardiac paddles??? To which Nash responds by spilling a bucket of water and electrocuting the Clown??? And then the Cowboy who shoots at Nash with a shotgun, to which Nash responds by shooting out two sculptures filled with marbles??? How about the guy Nash heels in the groin, and finally has to pull out his gun??? If you didn't see this episode, it would be unbelievable. Nash demonstrates a very creative response to violence - electrocution, marbles, groin kicks - and Nash even does magic and sings in this episode.

Come to think of it, all mysteries end in sexual escapades and sordidness. The second mystery is of Harvey's neighbor and dog co-owner Janice having trysts in Harvey's house. This is actually very funny, with Jenny Lewis and Gervase Peterson from this summer's monster hit SURVIVOR. As Janice and Jerome, Lewis and Peterson play out what was the rampant rumor that they had sex on that miserable island. The third mystery is Cassidy's case of a wife murdering her husband's son is a bit more sordid. Wife Susan seduces a college athlete into murdering the son, and it's captured, or at least partially captured on videotape. We get to view the tape too, just like we get to see Tiny having sex with a client's wife: Ohhh! That's perfect! - she moans. So all three mysteries are unraveled because of sexual escapades. Tiny's sexual conquest results in Jason plotting to kill him, because Jason is infatuated with the wife.

In "Double Trouble", we get sex, and we get bizarre violence. Wouldn't it be great if all Bad Guys looked like Bad Guys? When the cowboy killers go after Nash, it's not exactly subtle, what with all their cowboy gear and hats on. At least the other two stories are some sort of mystery anyways. As Nash sings to the group of children: "Be careful little hands, when you steal. There are cops everywhere so Bad Guys must beware." The Bad Guys on NASH are not too bright anyways - it's like shooting fish in a barrel for Nash.
