To Catch a Killer. Veteran character actor Brian Dennehy gives a chilling and unforgettable performance in this early 90s TV miniseries retelling of the true events leading to the arrest of one of America's most notorious serial killers. When a teenage boy vanishes after supposedly stepping out to talk to John Wayne Gacy (Dennehy) about a part-time job at his construction company, a tenacious police Lieutenant becomes convinced that the "successful local businessman and respected member of the community" is responsible, though others are less persuaded by the slim-at-best circumstantial evidence. But his investigation into Gacy begins to unearth a pattern suggesting something far more horrifying than anyone suspected.

Disturbing stuff.

Melrose Place. Watching season 1 of this notorious 90s prime time soap at the moment. I haven't seen this show in 20 years since it went off-air, and I haven't seen this season since it first aired, a frankly unbelievable 26 years ago. (Dear God, I'm old!) I'm enjoying it so far, though it doesn't really become the show everyone remembers until the second half of the season IIRC. The first half is a relatively light hearted and restrained drama, not the OTT lurid soap it will soon become. The biggest shock going back is how completely different Michael is early on. He clearly has a bit of a temper but is otherwise a mature-minded, faithful and loving husband and caring doctor. Soon he will of course become the scheming, smirking, cheating rat we all remember lol! We've seen Kimberly a couple of times (again, very different and normal so far!) and the last one I saw just introduced Sydney. My, I forgot what a cute little vixen she was. Oh my. :twisted: :oops:

I'm having nostalgic fun so far, so I can see me getting the rest if this keeps up.

It's almost like looking into a mirror, isn't it? :twisted: :roll: :lol:

He has been one of my role models, I'll admit. :P
