Law & Order CI: Bedfellows
26 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought the episode was excellent. The opening scene with the two EMS attendants was well framed and gave the actors a "bigger-than-life" look. It was fast paced and well-acted. I jumped out of my skin when I saw that the women in the bed was alive. I think though that there should have been some dialogue at that point between the wife and the attendants. Although the intent was to show the attachment initially to the dead husband, the scene where the attendants removed her from the bed only seemed like a frustrated struggle to get her out of the bed rather than a sympathetic, gentle coaxing and understanding of the situation. There should have been some form of dialogue. All-in-all, I thought it was a good plot. The acting, as always, was top notch and I enjoyed the show. Bring back the African-American EMS attendant. Although he was only in the opening scenes, he exuded strength, power and a certain star-like quality. He reminds me of Omar Epps! Love the show!
