Silk Stalkings - Squeeze Play television review

Throwback Tuesday takes us back to the unsolved crimes of passion in the wealthy playground of Palm Beach, Florida. Chris (Rob Estes) and Rita (Mitzi Kapture) catch a case where one of Rita’s ex-boyfriends (Dan Gauthier) is the prime suspect in a murder. The crime takes place in the pre-credit sequence where the ballplayer was making out with a married woman (Bonnie Burroughs) in her driveway leading to an altercation between the athlete and her older husband (Kevin Bash). It doesn’t help his case that the woman’s story sets him off as a sexual predator and paints her husband as hero attempting to rescue her.

Silk Stalkings - Intensive Care television review

Throwback Tuesday takes us back to the unsolved crimes of passion in the wealthy playground of Palm Beach, Florida. Chris (Rob Estes) and Rita (Mitzi Kapture) investigate the murder of a womanizing doctor (John Rubinow) in “Intensive Care.” Initial evidence seems to point the nurse (Robin Frates) he was fooling around with during his shifts or the former friend (James McDonnell) he beat out for a recent promotion, although neither detective like them for the crime (even when evidence turns up in the doctor’s office). The real culprit turns out to be a hospital administrator (Jennifer Savidge) whose obsession with the doctor turned deadly given how much time he was showing the younger nurse. The episode is also notable for appearances by Richard Scott Sarafian and Denice Duff as a pair of Chris’ old friends, one of whom Lorenzo gets hot and heavy with, albeit only for an instant, while fantasizing of what might have been (which is the most memorable aspect to an otherwise straightforward episode).

Silk Stalkings - Blo-Dri television review

Throwback Tuesday takes us back to the unsolved crimes of passion in the wealthy playground of Palm Beach, Florida. “Blo-Dri” introduces fans to Donnie “Dogs” DiBelco (Dennis Paladino), a local gangster who would go on to have a dozen appearances over the show’s run. Investigating the murder of a womanizing hairdresser (Oliver Darrow) and a mob lawyer leads to a disagreement between Chris (Rob Estes) and Rita (Mitzi Kapture) and as to who the true target of the hit was. While some evidence points to a photographer (Teri Ann Linn) with a rough romantic history with the victim, the real reason behind the murder proves to be money. Donnie’s bark in his first appearance is worse than his bite, but first interaction between the gangster and Rita sets the stage for their unusual relationship.

Silk Stalkings - The Brotherhood television review

Throwback Thursday takes us back to the unsolved crimes of passion in the wealthy playground of Palm Beach, Florida. Chris (Rob Estes) and Rita (Mitzi Kapture) head back to college to investigate the murder of a coed (Katrina Clayton) who had been beaten, drugged, raped, and killed before her body is found dumped by the side of the road. While the initial evidence, including an eye-witness, seems to point to the girl’s boyfriend (Bojesse Christopher) everything seems a bit too neat for our detectives who dig into the fraternity of their suspect (and eye-witness) and discover something far more sinister than just the death of one coed.

Silk Stalkings - Curtain Call TV review

Throwback Thursday takes us back to the unsolved crimes of passion in the wealthy playground of Palm Beach, Florida. Things get messy for Chris (Rob Estes) when a high school girlfriend (Kelly Curtis) he just reconnected with turns out to be the prime suspect in the murder of her controlling lover (Lee Benton). Struggling as much with Sarah’s bisexuality as with the possibility that she killed someone in cold blood (and then took him to bed), Chris finds it hard to focus on the case in an episode that pushes Rita (Mitzi Kapture) into the background for the most part (although she is responsible for a rather obvious idea which helps to lead to the true killer).
