A wealthy gambler is found dead after apparently jumping from, or being thrown from, the side of a cruise ship. It is discovered that he had just made a huge loss that night to a young man - a sort of "gambling prodigy" whose incredible skills and confidence enable him to win big often. When suicide is ruled out, the rude, cocky guy at first seems like he might have committed or ordered a murder when his gambling buddy couldn't pay up. However, a look into his life and his part brings up a big conspiracy. Written by Henrietta G. Molgardy

One of the best episodes, especially for the wonderful acting of Lou Taylor-Pucci
31 December 2011 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

CRUISE TO NOWHERE - a great episode of L&O: CI, is really a place for Lou Taylor Pucci (Joey Frost) to shine.

I first became familiar with Lou through this episode. His character - a young poker-playing genius, with the mentality of a little boy is riveting.

One reason I love this series, Is Vincent D'Onofrio's brilliant portrayal of Det. Robert Goren. His off-kilter performance, is what ensnared me, originally, and, I'm sure a lot of other faithful L&O:CI watchers.

It is nice to see a performer with Mr. D'Onofrio's skills work with someone else, such as Pucci, whose work is just as riveting.

Since this episode, I've tried to better familiarise myself with Pucci's work, one of which, is the film THUMBSUCKER, in which Pucci's character, a shy, introverted young man, is the polar opposite of the brash, Joey Frost.

As an episode of this great series, and, in particular, a tour de force for great acting, CRUISE TO NOWHERE is at the top of my list.
