Ripped from the headlines..
27 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It seems to me that the character of Dempsey Powers has to be based on the real-life criminal Larry Davis (shot a bunch of cops in the South Bronx but acquitted, a "folk hero" in the old neighborhood, claimed that the police were after him to cover up a police-run drug ring, was finally convicted of a different crime). I am not usually the only person to notice stuff like this, though. I checked the IMDb trivia section, and even wikipedia, and nobody else seems to have made this connection. So I'm making it now, for what it's worth. I love this episode, Joel Grey is so over-the-top crazy, it's a treat to watch him, as always.
