Question: Did anyone out there in TV land watch the Spike TV miniseries The Kill Point? I loved it and was hoping there would be talk about it but can't find anything. I guess I'm the only one who saw it!
Answer: Blame the busiest summer in TV history for this enjoyable thriller getting lost in the shuffle. If it helps ease your mind, it didn't go entirely unnoticed: I gave it a short rave review upon its premiere and included it in a recent Dispatch roundup of summer finales. If it's released on DVD, which I imagine it will be, I highly recommend it, despite a little sagging in the middle. John Leguizamo and Donnie Wahlberg were terrific as the lead hostage-taker and lead negotiator in this bank-robbery standoff, which almost make up for what happened to The Nine.
