Sad Portrayals Of Ex-Child TV Stars
23 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pirated movies and Albanian hit men are two of the subject matters here as a former child acting star is found murdered. Actually, he was about a half hour away from being buried in Potter's Field. He had been listed as a "John Doe" when found in a ravine, dead for about three weeks and rotting. Not a pretty sight or smell! "Skater Stevens" (Noah Weisberg) was one of those child TV stars you read about in real life who go from the penthouse to the outhouse, usually become a heavy drug user and have bunch of sad tales along the way after their TV sitcom ends. Fortunately, some of them survive and do okay.In this story, "Skater" didn't survive but he was into illegal activity, not just abusing himself with drugs.

You don't want to aggravate the Albanian Mafia or the Russian Mafia or the Italian Mafia or any nasty organization.

Meanwhile, "Detective Logan" continues to be entertaining. Chris Noth is turning out to be a fun guy to watch on this series, and someone who makes the periodic loss of Vincent D'Onofrio tolerable.. Eric Bogosian as his boss, "Captain Ross," is interesting, too. He seems to have a bit more of a personality than his predecessor, "Capt. Deakins," although I liked the latter. Julianne Nicholson is still a bit too new to make judgments, yet, although I do love looking at her freckles. I like the subtle looks she gives Logan here, both positive and negative.

Matt Keesar also has a key role in this story, playing a guy that was on Skeeter's popular TV show, a guy who was always getting the best of poor Skeeter. His name is "Kirk Tunis," and he's portrayed as a nutcase, too. In other child actors aren't put in a good light on this episode.
