Default Best and Worst Acting in Segment

[I'm new here, so I apologize if I'm duplicating a thread.]

So, what are some of the best and the worst?

Best
the swamp couple in the Audrey Moate case
the attack scene in the Richard Church case (sorry, but the music and the motions and the screams are really chilling IMO - I'm not interested in glorifying violence or anything)

Worst
the Maria Armstrong case

It's from the Gilbert Ortiz case. He was the guy who drank a poisoned milk shake.

Oh, YES! I remember that one. Gilbert was like 120 pounds and his wife wanted him to look like a bodybuilder.

Best:

- The entire Connecticut River Valley Killer segment. That is absolutely one of the best produced segments in UM history, IMO.

- The altercation/murder scene between Larry Dickens and Edward Harold Bell

- The Doyle Wheeler attack

The actress who portrayed Cindy Anderson I thought did an exceptional job, as well as the actor portraying "Debby's" attacker. The Philip Fraser segment also had some pretty solid moments.

Worst:

- The entire Sal Guardado segment. "Sal--Sally---that's neat!"

- The majority of the Kenneth Engie segment.

- Don't get me wrong, I love this segment, but Son of Sam had some pretty lame moments, I thought. Especially when the actor playing David Berkowitz goes leering by the witness walking her dog with this "evil" smile on his face.

That actress creeped me out during the scene when her boyfriend, Ron (the victim), was on the phone with his sister. She was pacing back and forth saying weird things and was laughing for no reason. And when she was in the apartment alone, she would be all paranoid pacing back and forth.

The murder of Chief Hamrick. Those gang boys were terrible!

And if we're going for real life acting: Chad Noe and Mark Nichols. They can't lie for crap.

That picture of Chad Noe holding his son Jonathan makes me cringe. Chad Noe looks like a weenie in that picture. What did Wendy ever see in him?

Best Acting:

1.Actress who played Tammy Leppert, she was great in those scenes were nshem acted psycho.

2. Actor who played the black homeless guest in the Adam Hect segment. That actor has been in quite a few TV and movie shows over the years. I think UM was his big break.

3. Every single actor in the Circleville Writer segment. One of the best produced segments UM has ever done.

4. The guy that played Eric Kessler was disturbingly real and frightening

Worst acting
1. don;t know why, but that guy that played that bearded tough, in the eremy Bright segment always annoyed me. You know the "nah, this just a toy" guy.

2. The dude that played Liz Carmichael was a little over the top IMO.

Can I nominate Don Dixon for worst acting? He was terrible at acting innocent. For personal reasons we have not had cable in 2 years and I miss watching UM sooo much! Hubby never watched it much so we bought the official DVDs but...that wasn't enough to satisfy me. He loved what he's seen though. But reading this thread...I can remember alot of these cases you are discussing.

LOL I loved watching that guy play Liz. I thought he was going for the "FABULOUS" (see my jazz hands there?) side of her personality. lol And holy cow, watching that huge tall dude walk in to court in a mini skirt while the guys who worked with her said that they never for a second ever believed that she wasn't a woman. Oh gawd... what were they thinking?

The little boy in the Eva Shoen case did an excellent job. The scene where they are running for help after finding their mother's body, his facial expressions and crying were very believable and heartbreaking.

I always thought Matthew McConaughay did a terrible job of acting in the UM segment. He overacted.
