  • This Isn't No 'Family Ties'

    Cops are investigating the murder of a public health doctor in the park, who was trying to expose a pattern of HIV infections. Her husband( Michael Gross), who is a retired attorney wants to find the killer. They close in on this player who infected his partners without telling them he has the disease. But he's ruled out as a suspect when a similar murder occurs at the same park. It turns out that she was having an affair with another man who had sex with an escort. But, he tells the cops he didn't know the girl. The chick is brought in for questioning and points out the photo of the slain woman's husband, who's is part of an identity theft scam. Later, he is caught having sex with the whore before he skips town. He tells the cops that he'd been taking ecstasy to bring back his sex life, and killed his wife because she refused.

    Michael Gross wants to feel young again. This was a good episode

  • Law and Order Special Victims Unit!

    A women is found murdered in Central Park. The Detectives of the Special Victims Unit are able to identify her as Greta Esterman, who works as a public-health doctor who traces HIV infection patterns. The investigation starts by looking into Greta's patients, some of whom were a little less than happy to be informed that they had contracted an STD. When Benson and Stabler find that Greta had a background check performed on a man named Vartan Dadian, the suspect that he may be her boyfriend. What they aren't expecting is that Vartan Dadian is her husband's alias, and that he was using Greta's money to satisfy his needs. This was a good episode. It was kinda confusing when the Detectives were trying to trace through Greta's HIV chart. They were talking to so many people that it was hard to keep them all straight. It really made me think about how many people get infected with HIV just because someone thinks that they don't have to protect themselves and their partners.
