Odd couple

6/10

This one is a bit much. Yesterday I made sure when buying sodapop it was root beer with only 2% sugar content. We all have to read labels. But soda is a part of American culture whether the folks who wrote this SVU episode admit it or not.

The PR executive of a cola company is found drowned in a park. Later on video surfaces that shows said executive hot to trot and ready to get it on right there in Central Park. Lucy Owen's body shows that it was given a rather exotic quantity of mushrooms at a banquet earlier in the evening.

The verdict on Owen is mixed. Some regard her as a saint, some just good at her job, some as some kind of happy face put on a corporate monster.

In the end a rather odd pair of suspects are picked up, David Krumholtz a scientist and Amanda Fuller the screw-up heiress of the family who owned the cola company. What and how much culpability each has the crux of the episode.

There's also Rosemary Harris the grand dame of the cola company family who is one matriarch no one runs afoul of. She provides an interesting coda for the cola episode.

"Aunt May" scores as the grandmother from h**l!

7/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The fifth episode of the 12th season of "SVU" is a little too "preachy" as it takes the (usual) liberal take on the evils of big business, this time attacking soft drink companies as being responsible for leading an attempt to control the world's water supply. The suspicious discovery of a body in a fountain leads the SVU team to the halls of academia and the mansion of a wealthy dowager, played by veteran character actress Rosemary Harris, who had a business relationship with the murder victim.

Harris, who has been introduced to the younger generation as Peter Parker's "Aunt May" in the "Spiderman" movies, is extremely good as the unforgiving aunt of one of the suspects, played by guest star Amanda Brookss.

The final scene in the hospital between Harris and Brooks demonstrates the aunt's true character, leaving the viewer to be sympathetic to the niece who is revealed to be the actual murderer.
