Deborah Wakeham Guest-Stars
24 April 2014 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Former Vegas showgirl Lisa (Deborah Wakeham) is carjacked and raped having been lured to a secluded location by a mysterious stranger (Michael Cole) and his accomplice. Her friend Bea (Phyllis Davis) works for local private detective Dan Tanna (Robert Urich) but he is not hired to investigate. Lisa, suddenly also unemployed, was reluctant to report the attack in the first place and felt humiliated by the process.

Tanna is outraged and works with Veteran cop Lt. David Nelson (Greg Morris) to track down the assailants. It isn't long before there is another victim (Elyssa Davalos) and her accidental death complicates things. The only one who can identify one of the rapists in court is Lisa. Such an event would tie them in with the death of the other victim. This makes her a potential target.

What better idea for a detective show could there be than a private investigator in Las Vegas? There are infinite avenues to explore the light and shade of human character in Sin City and plausible reasons why a PI might make a handsome living there. Sadly Vega$ only lasted three seasons. I never could get past the putrid disco soundtrack the show had so the mute button on the clicker came in handy.

As with any episode of this show the guest stars are the amongst most impressive aspects of the production. Elyssa Davalos is given but a few minutes screen-time. But Canadian actress Deborah Wakeham appears in much of the episode. Michael Swan plays a baffling role in this with characteristic flair. For whatever reason Michael Cole looks hungover during his time on screen. It works for role...I guess.
