In a class scene, Pierce Brosnan's character writes the word "motive" on the blackboard. He writes the word across the entirety of the blackboard, using one continuous motion to write the letter "o" and underlining it four times. Later in the same scene, the word only encompasses a smaller portion of the board, and it is clear that the letter "o" was written using two separate motions, and the fourth underline is much longer.

This is probably one of the coolest made for TV suspense movies I've ever seen. The movie walks you through the whole formula on how to do a suspense/murder movie and even with all this knowledge you still get surprised on who the actual killer is, even though all the answers are being handed to you in a step-by-step formula. I really recommend this movie to anybody who has a friend that your always stuck having to explain Usual Suspects to.
