Best season so far imho! Shepherd and Sims are now solving crimes like a well-oiled machine. There's a down-home feel to these episodes, and I'm finding the supporting ensemble provides great comedic effect. There's a DS with phobias to exploit; Russian medical examiner with a romantic interest in Mike Shepherd; a young Maori, who seems to have insights into most every crime, and even plays two different characters in the final episode; and a busybody who seems to show up daily with her own theory of whodunit! Just the right mix of drama and comedy, and never taking itself too seriously, makes this series a keeper!
