  • Good Episode But A Clumsy Outcome/Motive

    I've never watched "Close To Home" before but I tuned in to this episode because an up-and-coming young actor (Dylan Edrington) was featured in it. He plays Josh Cooper, a high-school basketball who is killed in a mysterious shooting at a celebration bonfire. Both Jennifer Finnigan and Kimberly Elise gave great performances as the series regulars, and the writing was well-done as the story twisted and turned as to why Josh's teammate and friend would - or did - shoot him. When the truth is revealed, it was sort of a disappointment. Josh and his friend were having a secret gay relationship, and Josh was going to leave town. Not wanting him to leave, he shot Josh, because "he loved him." Um, okay. Anyways, a solid episode and a job well done by all involved, but the entire reason as to why Josh's killer shot him was just dumb.
