Storyline

Donald Strachey's claim to fame is being the only openly gay private investigator in the Albany area. He is married to Tim Callahan, the aide to Democratic senator, Dianne Glassman. Because of the expensive house renovations Donald and Tim are going through, Donald reluctantly takes the case of John Rutka, a gay advocate, who is hated by homophobes for being so vocally gay, and by many gays, such as Donald and Tim, because he, through his website, outs gays who want to stay in the closet. The higher the profile of his targets, the better he feels he is advancing the gay cause. John was shot in his own home by an unknown assailant, while his boyfriend Eddie Santon was home with him. John wants Donald to find out and nab who shot him, before the perpetrator finishes the job. They believe that the shooter is probably working for one of the many he is investigating as possibly being gay, the three who he was contemplating possibly featuring in the next edition of his blog being the ...

A Real Detctive Story
4 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just saw this video, and was impressed heaps with the story, a good detective vid, and the actors, for the most part. Chad was massive in his starring role. The only negative I saw was the inclusion of Matthew Rush, in what was a cameo, that could have been done better with a real actor in the role. It was a good detective show, though the ending was a bit questionable, in terms of most crime solving shows. It did though show off the skills of a lot of actors. Chad was so satisfying to see in this adult role. He is an actor that we need to see more of. The rest of the cast, (forgive me for my feelings, of Matt Rush, with his scene that showed little acting ability, limited to a gratuitous segment) gave the performances that we could expect from them, due to past performances. I kept thinking, that if we could accept a good mystery/detective show, with a lead that was gay, Chad could carry it off. He has grown up well, and shows his skill. Bottom line, I really enjoyed it. This may not be at CSI level as a crime mystery, but it at a comfortable level. Chad has star quality, from what I saw. The character he established would be a strong role for a series, that goes beyond his orientation. I really would like to see the next case that they need to work. This vid made me a fan of Chad's. Great work guy.

Chad needs the chance to give us more.
