Oh my god, Detective Beckett loves Forbidden Planet?
Those writers know my perfect woman.
New York nitpick alert: While they get points for citing the Angelika, which is a real movie theater in the East Village, it's not a revival house. The last time I checked, it was an art theater showing the latest new indies and foreign films, but NOT the sort of place that would schedule a screening of FORBIDDEN PLANET.
(That would be the Film Forum, several blocks away.)
Good episode, though. Nice and twisty . . . although you knew the D.A. was up to no good once you saw he played by Bruce Davison!
