What I'm Watching: The Kill Point

The Kill Point: Part 3 "No Meringue" (B-)

I do not know a great deal about hostage-kidnapper relations aside from what I have seen on TV and in movies ("The Nine", "The Negotiator"), but it seems that all the hostages and the hostage-takers seem just a bit too chummy. I am glad that Kelly was able to get himself back into play and that this show has now passed over the mandatory negotiator-loses-authority part of the show, though it was fun seeing Susan Misner (Lou's crazy nun from "Rescue Me") try a serious, no-nonsense approach and get completely shot down. The ending seems more than a bit abrupt, especially since I thought two parts were airing. This mini-series may end up being a bit longer than it should have been, but it should get pretty intense once Wolff's buddies on the outside try to help them.
