Trivia

During the interview with the convict, Lenny cracks, "Women - can't live with 'em, can't kill 'em". This is a paraphrase of a one-liner made by comedian Steven Wright on his 1985 album 'I Have a Pony' (Wright says "shoot", not "kill"). Comedian 'Emo Phillips' makes a similar comment ("Women - can't live with 'em, can't get 'em to dress up in skimpy little Nazi outfits") on his album "E=MO Squared", also released in 1985.

Control Freak
11 May 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Two fishermen hook a dead body out of the Hudson River and it turns out to be an investigator for the State Attorney General's office. It's been there for weeks and yields few clues except a big hole in the back of the head. No doubt it was a murder.

As per the title of this episode the investigation leads Jerry Orbach and Jesse Martin to the trail of one of the higher ups in the Attorney General's office played by Nestor Serrano, a man with a big ego. In fact he's misdirected the missing person's investigation from the beginning, having the trail start in Albany where the victim was originally from.

Serrano is some piece of work, he's even clinically diagnosed by his psychiatrist as a total control freak. He's juggling a wife and two mistresses, the deceased being one of them. And he's up for a big promotion.

Spousal privilege and the doctor's obligation are the issues that Sam Waterston and Angie Harmon have to deal with. The doctor can't testify because of some real roadblocks that Serrano's sharp defense attorney Gerry Bamman has thrown. Bamman a cool customer too throwing a nice alternate theory of the crime saying one mistress killed the other and it's plausible.

A scary episode considering this defendant has a big job in the criminal justice system and going for a bigger one.
