Should have been a TV series after the 2nd film "Mirror Image"

Nicolas Surovy is always great. In Stark, it was easy to envision a long-running series resulting from his movie specials, as Surovy is a handsome, well-rounded leading man. Sorry, but Marilu Henner stunk this one up and tried way too hard for every inch of screen. The 2nd Stark film, "Mirror Image" paired him well with a young Kirstie Alley, and their obvious chemistry lifted what might have been just another movie- of-the-week style outing to another level entirely. The fact that Stark is in Vegas as a fish out of water from Wichita imbues his character with a slight naivete, but don't let that fool you--it's obvious he came from the gritty, soulful, sexy side of Wichita! Def worth watching, if you can find it--hold your nose when Henner is around.
