The appearance of a 50's star makes the episode!

7/10

For baby boomers, the name "Jack Larson" brings back memories of "Look...up into the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Superman!" Larson is the actor that played the gung-ho Jimmy Olsen on "The Adventures of Superman", the iconic show featuring the late George Reeves in the title.

Larson guest stars as the grandfather of a young AIDS-carrier, played by Brian Geraghty, who has coldly infected several women in the city. Detectives Stabler (Chris Meloni) and Benson (Mariska Hargitay) discover the young man's infecting ways as they investigate the murder of a young woman found dead in a park.

Both Larson and Geraghty are excellent in their respective roles though the story itself seems a tad derivative of older and better SVU installments.

With that said, it's really thrilling to see the elder actor on the small screen,showing that there's still some "spunk" left at age 81 in the "kid reporter".

As easy as possible

5/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

A young party girl gets herself murdered and her boyfriend Brady Corbet is eventually arrested for the crime by Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni. But before she died she had anonymous sex with young and spoiled Brian Geraghty and he turns out to be a carrier of the AIDS virus. And he's spreading it quite indiscriminately and knowingly.

Here's where Medical Examiner Tamara Tunie and her office come into play. She's found Geraghty and his disease in any number of other people and even with anonymous testing it's enough for him to be charged with serial rape. Attempted murder is far more difficult to prove, but Geraghty with his attitude is trying to make it as easy as possible.

Jack Larson whom I so well remember from my youth as Jimmy Olson on the Superman series plays Geraghty's grandfather. A truly broken man who for all his wealth is about to really lose all that he really cares about.

AIDS stories have been done on SVU before and this one seems to be braking no new ground. Still the episode is well directed and acted.
