Did You Know?


Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome is a rare genetic disease that usually only affects men (only about one in a million boys born with the genetic mutation will develop symptoms). It is characterized by eczema, thrombocytopenia (low platelet count), immune deficiency, and bloody diarrhea (which is due to blood not clotting because of the low platelet levels). The first signs are usually petechiae (red or purple spots on the skin, caused by a minor bleed from broken capillary vessels) and bruising, resulting from a low platelet count. Spontaneous nose bleeds and bloody diarrhea are also common and eczema typically develops within the first month of life. See more »

Yet Another New Partner For 'Det. Mike Logan'
18 January 2009 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Alicia Witt debuts as "Det. Nola Falacci." Man, what's with this show? This is the third partner for "Det. Mike Logan" (Chris Noth) in two years.

I liked the other two. Julianne Nicholson as "Det. Megan Wheeler" was Logan's partner at the end of last season. Before that,it was Annabella Sciorra as "Det. Carolyn Barek." True, they didn't have big personalities but they sufficed and they were both non-offensive. Witt's character, at least with this debut of her, is the opposite: she has no tact, edgy and hard to work with. Even "Capt. Danny Ross" (Eric Bogosian) warns "Det. Logan" (Chris Noth) about her. Well, we will see how long she lasts.

Speaking of poor personalities, the main family in this particular crime case in this episode, could have used a course on "how to get along with people." They are really sick, arrogant punks from the father, mother and son. These are the kind of people you want to slap, or at least slap the cuffs on them.

It also deals with a doctor, an OB-GYN who is killed and then placed in another room and in a position which is supposed to give false clues on the motive. It works for a short time, but the cops soon see it as a ruse. Then the "family business" gets worse with brothers and sperm-bank kids. It gets sticky, is all I'll say.

Veteran actor Michael O'Keefe does a great job of playing the shadiest suspect, "Eli Rush." He's the one who claims he's sterile, but it turns out he has hundreds of his sperm-bank kids all over the city. Yes, another bizarre week at the Major Crimes Section of the NYPD.
