Nasty Females Made Him Do It
11 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a typical "Law And Order: Criminal Indent" episode in that it had a untypical type of story about a guy getting back at all the sadistic women in his family and had a famous photographer help him.

It was also typical in that, at the last minute under the psychological games Goren and Eames like to play, he confesses. Gee, like the old Perry Mason TV programs, it's refreshing when the killer does NOT confess in this show. But, that rarely happens thanks to our genius detective "Robert Goren" (Vincent D'Onofrio) who always knows the right buttons to press and get the suspect to go temporarily insane.

Another thing that was in this episode that Hollywood has been doing for almost 60 years: anyone with a German accent is a "bad guy." Whether it's movies or TV, if you have a German character, count on him to be the villain. In this episode, the photographer, "Gerhardt Heltman: (Sam Tsoutsouvas) was a German. The real villain, though, was the young artist "Spenser Farnell" (Glenn Fitzgerald).

When you hear what the females in his family did to him as a kid you almost feel sorry for him. Caroline Lagerfelt, the woman who played Heltman's wife, I thought was extremely interesting in a minor role.

Why this program has been so slow to put these seasons on DVD, I don't know. It's been a continuing problem. It took years to get Season 2 put on disc. I have stopped waiting for this fourth season to come out, so I'm catching these shows as repeats on either the USA Network or Bravo, and put up with the commercials.
