A pair of sick shrinks
10 March 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Major Case squad gets involved in the murder of a young musician who was in therapy and was involved with his therapist Margaret Colin. This was something very much encouraged by Colin who has seen her husband also in the therapy game do over and over again. In fact for a pair of mental health professionals these two, Colin and Brent Spiner play some very disconcerting mind games on each other and their daughter Taylor Roberts.

The Law And Order franchise has come back to this theme over and over again, two adults and the games they play and the devastating effects it has on their offspring. Poor Roberts, she would have been better off being the daughter of a pair of factory workers.

Roberts is the one in fact who does the deed. She's lived with these two and just being an observer she's been affected by what these two have done. All she ever wanted was to be the child of normal parents, something that is denied to too many in life.

Having been the child of one psychologist this episode affected me personally. I'm not sure how I would have handled two of them. Roberts in a mostly restrained performance until Vincent D'Onofrio gets the truth out of her is just brilliant when we get down to what really happened.

In fact this is one homicide that without the peculiar quirks and mind turns of Robert Goren I'm not sure could have been solved. Well maybe Jeff Goldblum might have done it as well being also the son of a mental health professional.

Spiner and Colin are one pair of sick shrinks.
