Character actor Michael Shannon has been nominated for his second Oscar for his role in the 2016 thriller Nocturnal Animals. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some of the other characters he's played in the past.
This was another excellent episode, thanks to no soap story.
The action part involved Bob over in East Africa, protecting the Secretary of State, who was there for talks. It's discovered right before he lands that there has a leak, that people know who Bob is, so the order is to talk out of his trip and to go back on the plane. The next part was not realistic as the Secretary is portrayed as some super-arrogant jerk. Nobody of that high rank - nobody - would act like this guy. Anyway, he is escorted out with a small convoy and there are two killers - disguised as allies in the situation - in the same car as Brown and the Secretary. Good stuff, but a bit predictable.
The second story deals with Molly investing her and the girls' money in a real estate deal. The ending would have been a shocker but the back of the DVD case says what happened, ruining the surprise!!! Duh, how stupid is that?
There is a third story of Kim at the radio station with a possible very bad situation on her hands as an "admirer" breaks into the station.
All three segments were involving, even if flawed a bit. When I think back, they all had to do with deception, people not being who they appear to be at first.
