The Shy Guy
11 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's episodes like this that made me a fan of this program. This is an outstanding one. There is no suspense but an intenseness to it that keeps you riveted, especially in the last 10 minutes as Goren, almost sympathetically, gets the killer to admit his crimes.

The criminal is a very shy, quiet young man but a sick puppy, if there ever was one. I mean, how many people slice the calf off a female victim....and eat it?! Neil Patrick Harris guest stars as "John Tagman," always described as "the shy guy" (which should have been the title to this episode). All Tagman wants is a nice girl for a girlfriend, someone who won't leave him. However, giving them frontal lobotomies may not be the right way to go about finding a mate. That's what Tagman does to his second victim.

Goren knows the man is remorseful and something - which is never explained - makes him want to make sure the man doesn't get the death penalty, even though everyone else on the case does think Tagman deserves it.

The beginning of the show leaves us quickly with a couple of suspects but the show's concentration goes on Tagman pretty fast, and it's no secret he's the killer. How do they get this guy is the big question, because he's no dummy.

The main actors in this episode are outstanding and the dialog is first-rate, not that it always isn't good.
