It looked like a filler episode to me. They were capitalizing on the success of an earlier episode, the one in which Provenza and Flynn made fools of themselves over a couple of stewardesses. Obviously going for a light touch -- but it just didn't work. For one thing, a man was murdered when he was mistaken for another man, and no one blinked an eye! He wasn't much of a man, a petty grifter, but he was innocent and he died unjustly. For another thing, Provenza had to work too hard at being funny. It wasn't funny.
