The store clerk thanks "Winona" for the security cameras after he states she tried to rob the store, obviously reference to Winona Ryder's 2001 arrest for shoplifting. See more »


The drug which caused Nadia's death, the mythical Deverol, is an overt reference to the drug Demerol (meperidine), which is contraindicated with so many medications and is so ineffective for pain relief, and so addictive due to its euphoric effects, that it's limited to intravenous/intramuscular hospital inpatient use only for the last 8 years in the US. McCoy refers to it as an opiate. It effects opiate receptors but is unique as a schedule 2 narcotic in that it is not a metabolite of nor derived in any way from opium. See more »

Dr. Feel Good
8 March 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A young teen with a bright career ahead of her as a fashion model dies of cardiac arrest at a department store fitting room. We're not even sure this is a homicide, but Jerry Orbach and Jesse Martin investigate and the trail leads to a Dr. Feel Good type played by Jonathan Hogan. He's got an all purpose cure all for what ails you, a little narcotic pain medication.

The problem is that the victim was taking asthma medication at the same time and the issue for trial is recklessness on the doctor's part, if there was and how much.

Alexis Dziena plays the younger sister of the victim and the only English speaker in her Russian household. That in itself is the key to what happens at trial.

And believe me what happens catches everyone off balance.

Both Dziena and Hogan give fine performances here and the surprise ending is original.
