Satisfying Story Of Slimy Shyster Getting His Due
22 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Griffin Dunne plays a sleazy lawyer who is cheating on his wife everywhere you look. When one of his girlfriends wants more than just a wham-bam-thank you, ma'am-the shyster gets violent and drowns her in her bathtub. Detectives Goren and Eames go to work, turning down a more high-profile case because this one looks interesting. Well, it was....to say the least!

The second victim was another petite woman and is found washed up on shore but Goren quickly deduces she, too, was drowned in a bathtub. "Big day for little women," Eames says in her usual tone. It turns out even bigger as a third body is found, with same body type and strangled but not drowned. Later, a fourth woman is killed. That's where the program provides good suspense. Can the detectives figure out the fifth victim and find her in time?

The connection is that the women were clients and Dunne ("Mr. Talbott") also was taking them for a lot of money to help feed his gambling addictions.

Like a Columbo TV show, we get to see the slime-ball squirm slowly as our faithful detectives dig into the case and then race to save at least one of the five women on this guy's hit list. All these women were stupid but the dumbest of them all was the lawyer's wife, who was the queen of "denial," as Goren puts it.

Side notes: Vincent D'Onofrio ("Goren") turns out to be a smooth dancer....The writers of this show really don't like Yale University as they give the institution a few cheap shots as they did in another recent show....Another Eames line: "Looks like his train is about to run out of gravy." Eames (Kathryn Erbe) has a lot of good lines in this episode, which is finished in a very intense manner. I'm sure it is episodes like this that helped get it a big audience.
