Comedic actor gives a rare glimpse of his dramatic skills
29 June 2009 | by (Camilla, GA) – See all my reviews

The late John Ritter, mostly known for his comedic turns in the classic "Three's Company" and the most recent "8 Simple Rules," had a brilliant dramatic turn as an arrogant doctor who becomes the chief suspect in the death of his pregnant wife. Ritter is superb as a man so self-centered that he feels that he is above the law. He and regular cast member Chris Meloni have a powerful confrontation, allowing both actors a chance to show their skills.

As always, there is a "Law & Order twist, and this one is a stunning jaw-dropper.

Ritter was truly deserving of an Emmy nomination if not the award itself.
