FlickChick: In Praise of Roy Scheider (1932-2008)

Yeah Jaws Everybody remembers Roy Scheider as Chief Brody Partly because its impossible to imagine anyone else as the small-town family man forced to wage war on a prehistoric eating machine with only a nebbish and a psychopath as allies and partly because the one-two punch of Jaws and Star Wars changed American movies forever Being in Jaws let alone being the guy who summed up the man vs shark odds in the laconic observation Youre gonna need a bigger boat eclipsed everything But Scheider made his first movie in 1964 and his last three in 2007 He didnt die painfully young like Heath Ledger But his soft gravelly voice off-kilter good looks Scheider beat Owen Wilson to broken-nosed sexiness by decades and air of lean secretly damaged authority were such a familiar presence in TV and movies large and small that it was hard to imagine it ever being gone And now Scheider is Born and raised in Orange New Jersey Scheider was lean and a read more

May 14, 2007: Endgame

Wow. Hands down, this was the best episode of the season, and it certainly ranks among the top Criminal Intent outings to date. The craftsmanship was just far more superior to what most crime dramas offer today — particularly in the way Killer Scheider’s death-row countdown dovetailed with the deathwatch over Goren’s cancer-stricken mother. I loved the whole format of this episode, the way we worked backwards to slowly unearth decades of brutal crimes and long-buried bodies. And it was made all the more disturbing by Roy Scheider’s chilling portrayal of a serial killer delighting in his murderous reminiscences, lovingly flipping through his scrapbooks of victims like they were cherished family albums.Like Goren, I knew it was all leading somewhere (thanks in part to those overly revealing previews last week), but I never would have guessed the trail was leading back to his own mother — and the possibility that the detective’s father was that very same k... read more

May 8, 2007: Bombshell

Well, this one was pretty much what I expected — some really bad Anna Nicole Smith impersonation (not that there’s really a good Anna Nicole impersonation) and a few murder suspects in the form of “fictionalized” versions of the late Playmate’s various hangers-on. And, of course, a little limoncello for taste.Having seen all of “Bombshell,” I feel exactly the same way I did seeing the clips last week: There was just no reason this episode needed to be made. I don’t think Criminal Intent viewers are big tabloid-news followers (i.e., they probably don’t care who the father of Anna Nicole’s baby was) — and if any of you actually are, then this was just a rehash of yesterday's news. Basically, a no-win proposition for all concerned.So how in the name of all that is criminal and intent did they manage to attract not one but two decent guest stars to this mess? OK, three, if you count Kristy Swanson, but she was on Skating with Cele... read more
