The argument scene between Kathy bonderson and her husband is poor acting for me. It's just weird when he says well I hope you have a heck of a lot better luck than I did. And before that he mumbles something about his sons just probably having a few beers......interesting approach to calm his wife.

I thought the guy playing Huey Long was really good. Definitely pulled off the "force of nature" personality.

Marie Hilley, .Marie Hilley,.Marie Hilley. Hands down.

The woman who played Brenda Merrill did a very good job as well, by Hallmark Hall of Fame tv standards.
I'm kidding. She did give a powerful performance, particularly when she sees the filthy living conditions and confronts her mother about it.

I agree. He really nailed the guy's mannerisms and everything.

The actress that played Debbie Race.

I would have stranded her on the boat, too.

*cough*

Worst: The guy who played Danny Wheeler. The guy that played Bob Beane was pretty good.

Best : I thought the nurse and the soldier she rehabbed was a good segment and good acting. Kathy or Karen I believe was the Nurse’s name and Jim the soldiers.

Brenda's mother gets my vote for possibly the worst mother ever to be featured on UM. (And there have been some bad ones). So much so that even Brenda says she was driven to the point where she physically wanted to hurt her.

Sorry to sidetrack but that segment always struck me over how a mother could do everything she did to her children. Her children forgave her when they became adults and I think that was more than she actually deserved.

The actor who played Jim Burnside was incredibly intense and something tells me rather spot on in his depiction of that creep.

^These are the facts of the case, and they are undisputed.

As for bad acting...Bergwinkel's response to the mission is off call. I'm sure in reality his response was not to just yell "DAMN IT" repeatedly. I'm sure the constraints of broadcast tv/family-safe show hindered it. But still...that was pretty cringeworthy.

Oh my God, yes. Every part of her acting the whole segment. Like when she's talking to the doctors/cops about what happened, or explaining the poison and how she was like "well, they said it had to be something in the house" and all of that. Everything was so wooden

A detective portrays herself in the reenactment of that segment and she could act circles around the woman playing Elizabeth.

Her acting is terrible, but it kind of fits the nature of the case, given that the explanation she gave the police was about as rock-solid as wet tissue paper. Geez, if you’re going to commit a crime, can’t you at least craft plausible lies. Put forth some effort, I’m saying

For Good Acting: I remember the dude that played Wadada being legitimately terrifying. I'd have to watch the segment again, but I remember the turn from friendly to monstrous was scary and he was intimidating.

The best acted ones that I recalls are the Edward Bell segment and Marie Hilley segment. Funny that the Bell segment is known for having Matthew McConoughey, but he wasn't even the star actor of the bit. The guy that played Bell was legit scary and the actress playing the mom was so good, I actually thought she was watching her son getting murdered right in front of her.

As for Marie Hilley. That story is so off the wall crazy, it almost had to have a solid actress to carry the whole thing, and it came off surprisingly well.

Worst acted ones? The one that always sticks out to me is the Tom Johnson case. Horrible scenario obviously, but there is one part that always cracked me up when Tom Johnson pulls a gun on the couple while they are in the hotel room, the actor playing Jeremy said something like "Why'd you lie?" in the wimpiest voice imaginable and I couldn't help but laugh.

Indeed. The girl playing Dawna was good as well, especially when she had to identify Bell in the backseat of the police car.

One of the hardest things an actor/actress can do is cry and make it look legit. The women who played the mother and daughter accomplished that in spades.
