What do you mean, I thought that was Emmy nominee material right there.

I don't know if the actor was trying to appear buzzed, or if it never occured to the director that a group of high school boys might even be just slightly freaked out by a group of men in masks demanding their wallets?

To top it all off, all Mark Adams and friends do is nod affirmatively and calmly, and begin to walk away. Even if it is exactly how it all really went down.....hi-LAR-ee-us.


Yeah, I just saw that for the first time last week or so. He must have been trying to appear buzzed, but instead of slurring he was just making awkward pauses and intonating in a William Shatner or Christopher Walken-esque kind of way.

Someone awhile back linked to information on the actress who portrayed Marie Hilley. She still goes down as one of my favorites to date. She was fantastic. I wish I could still remember the name of the actress, can anyone help me out here?

I think the most stilted, awkward line reading I've ever seen on the show has to be the male jogger at the beginning of the Leah Roberts segment when he finds her shirt and says: "Honey, there's a shirt... or something up... there".

The local tough who says the gun is a toy and then after shooting someone says in this stoner voice, ''Oh, man.'' As if he thought the gun was fake or something. Same goes for the girl who encountered him in the hallway. ''What happened to you?'' I realize that was the real witness portraying herself, however.

''When is Gladys going to come back and resume her music lessons?!''


Deserved an Emmy:

Here's a segment where I thought there was simultaneous good and bad acting: Gretchen Burford. The actress playing Gretchen was great. The actor playing her assailant was not so great: "Take me to one of those--those money machines.." Like he didn't know what an ATM was!

The kid that played Tommy Burkett.
"What's wrong with you? Why don't you keep doing this to me? Why don't you just leave me alone?!"



Followed closely by the three stooges in that segment, "When you see him, tell him there are three guys looking for him to beat him up."

In the John Cheek segment, I noticed that the trucker who supposedly found John at the rest stop played himself in the re-enactment. His delivery of his lines, especially when he tells John he's going to buy him breakfast, is hilariously bad. However, I actually found the bad acting strangely endearing since the trucker seemed like a pretty nice guy and looked like he was genuinely enjoying the rare opportunity to act on a television show.

I loved that guy! He also seemed like a very kind and generous man--transients are often common at truck stops, and he could have just walked on past him sleeping there without giving him another thought.

I thought the re-enactment of Pam and Rob Page's supposed argument over the letter written on the computer was pretty hilariously bad acting on both parties' part.

Best:
The man who played the father of the girl with polio in the Lost Loves case (Judy Davis looking for Becky Terry). The way he helped her up the stairs and was emotional when she couldn't get up the stairs without a railing and said it was ok to ask for help. That performance always stood out to me. That whole segment was really well done.

Worst:
I have to throw this out again: "Honey, that looks like a shirt up there...or something."

The actor in the Blind River Cases did a fantastic job and he even looked like that scary composite!!

Poor Acting: In the Gary Grant case, I remember one of the officers asked Boo when was the last time he saw Gary. Boo said something like “A few days back” and the officer said “That would be Wednesday” (I might have all the lines messed up but you get the point) lol.

Neal and the actor who played George Owen gave two of the best portrayals on UM. The actress and actor who played John Burns and Eleanor Farber, as well as those from the Hilda Rochet segment gave convincing performances. Also the guy who portrayed Hugh Harlan, the actresses who played Crystal Spencer, Zel and Wilda Loseff, and the guy who portrayed the Blind River rest stop killer.

Poor: to add to the ones already mentioned, the harassers in the Kimberly Pandelios segment "what's your problem, man?"

Lathan Williams segment had some pretty bad moments in terms of acting. A hold up scene should never be comical but I can't help cracking up. ''I THOUGHT WE WAS COOL.'' ''I'll bust you up!''

But on the flipside, every other scene in the segment was well-acted. The two suspects were suitably creepy, along with the neighbor woman spotting them and getting scared. The actress portraying the grandmother did a good job as well.
