Hetero Dahmer
24 May 2010 | by (Nowhere Interesting) – See all my reviews

Take Jeffrey Dahmer, make him heterosexual instead of homosexual, and you've got this episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent. When it was revealed that the killer drilled into his victims' skulls and performed makeshift lobotomies in an attempt to create a "zombified" girlfriend who wouldn't leave him, I said to myself, "Ah...they borrowed that from Jeffrey Dahmer." Then we find the killer working in a chocolate factory...which they borrowed from Dahmer. He's a shy little nerd of a guy who wears rather unflattering glasses...kind of like Dahmer. The story follows the Dahmer line so thoroughly that when Carver's phone rang at the end, I knew before he even picked it up what he was going to tell Goren afterward.

While bolstered by some great performances, this is far too blatant a knock-off of a well-worn true story, which makes it painfully predictable, for the most part. Had this appeared as an episode of the original L&O, back in the '90s, it might have had more impact. For a program made ten years after the death of Jeffrey Dahmer, however, it seems quite stale.
