Trying to live it down
29 September 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Dann Florek takes center stage in this episode where a man whom he arrested for murder years ago who served his time is now a suspect again. James McDaniel who was thought to be a model of rehabilitation even now a university professor is thought to be a suspect in a recent homicide of a young woman whose body is found in Central Park.

Of course when McDaniel's name comes into the investigation Florek with the history he has zeroes in on him. Later on Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay find exculpatory evidence and the squad starts moving in the other direction.

The frame was a good one, but not good enough. McDaniel's quite good in the role of a man who can't escape his past.
