Galileo ガリレオ Episode 5 Screen Caps
A girl played by Ohgo Suzuka (Sexy Voice and Robo, Gokusen) is telling her mother played by Mizuno Miki (Beautiful Life, Slow Start) that she saw a fireball in her fathers workshop sometime during the night. The mother explains that maybe her father was burning something, then asks if she was worried about her father. The girl petulantly denies it. Four days later Utsumi Kaoru played by Shibasaki Kou (Orange Days, Good Luck!!) stands outside the laboratory of Yukawa Manabu played by Fukuyama Masaharu (Meguri Ai, Perfect Love) as a student lab assistant professes to being in love declaring she wants to be together forever. Kaoru enters and Manabu uses her as his excuse to leave the lab and the uncomfortable conversation with his student. Kaoru instructs Manabu that he also has responsibility in a one sided love for making her fall in love. When Manabu protests she calls him a coward and shrewd science nerd.
The perhaps one sided love affair between Kaoru and Manabu continues to be the only thing linking this random detective show but that along with another very fine cast of guest stars still keeps this the number one fall drama for me. Ohgo Suzuka seemed much more mature in this role then in Sexy Voice which was only six months ago. I can’t speak to the physics of the show but it’s always interesting and conceivable when Manabu explains the solution and usually surprising as well. This week's closed room mystery solution was a surprise for me.
