Frustration with Evil
29 December 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Martin Short joins a list of players who essayed characters on SVU that really pressed Detective Elliott Stabler's buttons. Some people can do that to you and Short who most of us know as a comic actor really shows some thespian chops playing a really frightening character, one of the most frightening this show has ever had.

The SVU squad gets assigned to an abduction of a female bicycle messenger who under duress phoned her parents. The law firm that she worked for did something that the police didn't appreciate, they went public with a reward offer allowing all the nut cases in the tri-state area to call in with tips and confessions.

One of those is Martin Short who is a self-styled psychic from Canada who offers his services. B.D. Wong picks up on the fact that Short uses a special reading of facial expressions technique and is a phony, but Christopher Meloni senses a lot more malevolence.

Thespian honors in this story go to Meloni and Short. Meloni for his frustration and Short for a performance of pure evil. Check this one out by all means.
