"Eyewitness " review by Suzanne
Premieres Sunday, October 16, 10/9c on USA Network
This is a very good suspense thriller. Julianne Nicholson,
who's been excellent in so many roles (such as "Law & Order:
Criminal Intent"), plays a small town sheriff, Helen, with a
troubled past, who's taken in a foster kid, a gay teen named
Philip. His biological mother is an addict.
Helen and her husband Gabe (Gil Bellows) seem to have some
issues as well, but they're good people.
Philip and his friend Lukas are having sex in a cabin when
three men, one of them an undercover informant, break
in. One of the men (Warren Christie of "Alphas") shoots all
of the others and almost shoots Philip, but Lukas hits him
over the head, and the teens run off.
Philip and Lukas agree not to tell anyone about what
happened because they fear Lukas killed the guy. Two FBI
agents also try to cover up the murders because they fear
losing their jobs (that part doesn't really make sense to
me). Meanwhile, Helen is trying to solve the case, despite
all of these obstacles and the fact that the murders remind
her of whatever terrible thing happened to her in the past.
It's a very good, fast-paced show with a lot of layers. It
definitely hooked me, and I want to see more. Check it out!
