A Tense Time And A New Face
1 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Boy, this turned out to be a tense situation at the end, not the normal grill-the-suspect in the police building and trick him into confessing.

Here, Detective Robert Goren, always a fast-and-convincing talker, has to talk his way out of a possible deadly situation where he and another cop might get killed inside the jail by some corrupt jail keepers. (Does Hollywood ever show guards as anything else?) Anyway, it's a good show with good acting by all, including a new character, a "Det. Mike Logan," played by Chris Noth. I've seen his name listed for some future episodes so, obviously, he's been added to the cast or will be down the road on a regular bias. (I've only watched these episodes in chronological order.)

As usual, the normal PC is prevalent in this story, but I won't go into specifics because I don't wish to spoil this for anyone who hasn't seen the episode. It's an entertaining one.that deals with the dark side of human nature, of evil that can creep in when people get too much power over others. Here, the victims are innocent Arabs.
