Yet Another New Partner For 'Det. Mike Logan'
ccthemovieman-1 from United States
18 January 2009
Alicia Witt debuts as "Det. Nola Falacci." Man, what's with this show?
This is the third partner for "Det. Mike Logan" (Chris Noth) in two
I liked the other two. Julianne Nicholson as "Det. Megan Wheeler" was
Logan's partner at the end of last season. Before that,it was Annabella
Sciorra as "Det. Carolyn Barek." True, they didn't have big
personalities but they sufficed and they were both non-offensive.
Witt's character, at least with this debut of her, is the opposite: she
has no tact, edgy and hard to work with. Even "Capt. Danny Ross" (Eric
Bogosian) warns "Det. Logan" (Chris Noth) about her. Well, we will see
how long she lasts.
Speaking of poor personalities, the main family in this particular
crime case in this episode, could have used a course on "how to get
along with people." They are really sick, arrogant punks from the
father, mother and son. These are the kind of people you want to slap,
or at least slap the cuffs on them.
It also deals with a doctor, an OB-GYN who is killed and then placed in
another room and in a position which is supposed to give false clues on
the motive. It works for a short time, but the cops soon see it as a
ruse. Then the "family business" gets worse with brothers and
sperm-bank kids. It gets sticky, is all I'll say.
Veteran actor Michael O'Keefe does a great job of playing the shadiest
suspect, "Eli Rush." He's the one who claims he's sterile, but it turns
out he has hundreds of his sperm-bank kids all over the city. Yes,
another bizarre week at the Major Crimes Section of the NYPD.
