Interesting curio from Meloni's past.
15 September 2005 | by (Oz) – See all my reviews

I've just found an old tape from 1995 and i'm taking a look at Law and Order: SVU's Christopher Meloni with much more hair, quite young, playing a writer who's had a bestseller (called Slopes) on the NYTimes bestseller list for 11 weeks, now he's moved into a small country town to try writing the follow-up. He buys the house that Ed left behind, the fourth member of a group of friends who ask him to enter their group of friends and expect him to play the role Ed used to play.

Its all a bit tense. I don't think Christopher's really comfortable with comedy. The concept of trying to get a group of friends to get over their friend's death is quite unpleasant and not particularly ripe for escapist comedy. Its an interesting dramatic situation, and Meloni makes you identify with his character.

I can see why its been sort of forgotten, having been pulled after only five episodes going to air (and one left unaired) but its good fun as a curio.
