Just a holiday in New York
14 November 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Kerry Butler is visiting New York City from Edmondton and is found by some kids in a rowboat in the East River just off Gracie Mansion. That certainly gets Mayor Bloomberg's attention and the SVU squad is called in. No doubt she had sex and now she's in a coma with her husband Richard Thomas racing into New York with their two young sons.

Apparently what Butler wanted to do is be a swinger and in Edmondton, she gets little chance of that. As the squad retraces her steps it's clear she got caught up in a fast crowd. The question is will she live to regret it as well as who put her in that condition.

Richard Thomas who was the All American John Boy Walton plays a John Boy type husband who is concerned for his wife and the effect all this will have on their kids as well as his relationship which looks like it's heading for the toilet. Thomas dominates this episode and he fills the part out well. Definitely something for those who remember the Waltons.
