Did You Know?


When Detective Amaro tells Henry Mesner, "It's real good you did that," this refers to the same line used in "The Twilight Zone" (1959) {It's a Good Life (#3.8)} in which all the adults are so scared of Anthony Fremont (Bill Mumy), they continually praise him by telling him that his actions are "real good."

Another Bad Seed
28 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

The SVU calls in an old regular BD Wong who is visiting from Oklahoma where the FBI has assigned him. The squad will have need of Wong's services as they have themselves another bad seed.

I'm not sure what else to describe young Ethan Cutkosky except that Patty McCormack is his cinematic grandmother. This kid is a serial killer in the making, no empathy, no remorse, no regrets. As he says he's just wired wrong the way Patty McCormack was in The Bad Seed. Cutkosky makes his little sister Brooke Liddell's life a living hell and his parents, Alex Manette and Hope Davis are in different stages of denial.

But young Cutkosky gives a real chilling performance of a sociopathic kid. It's the highlight of this episode.
