The story for this episode centers around a gay couple, which many minor characters express their skepticism towards. Detective Reese (Sarah Shahi) is the voice of defense for the gays. Sarah portrayed a gay DJ in the series "The L Word." See more »
I was really upset when NBC canceled this fine show. This is, in my opinion one of the top ten best shows canceled in two seasons or less. And this is just another example of how good this show was. Every episode was well written, well acted, and cast with many excellent co-stars. Added to all that is the regular cast which worked so well together right from the beginning the results were amazing. And that's unusual; in most series the characters start out a little rough and only get better as the series goes forward. Not Life; it as good right out of the box. This episode was another example of clever writing and great guests. William Sanderson as their first suspect was great. I'm guessing other actors hate to have him in a scene with them, he steals every scene he's in. And he was great in this as the homeless man found at the scene of the crime. I watched this on TV the first time around, and now I've bought the series from iTunes to see again and again. Don't miss this episode or any of the others.
