Viewer alert!

West Coasters, take note: Watch Law & Order: Criminal Intent tonight. The episode is an inspired commingling of ripped-from-headlines immediacy -- and knowing allusion to the film noir classic D.O.A.

I love that film.

Dennis Quaid is great in it.

Actually, the updated remake with Quaid and Meg Ryan is quite under-rated. But the opening scene of the original -- quoted (literally as well as figuratively) in the L&O:SVU episode -- still packs a wallop all its own.
