Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
TV viewers may have figured it out by now. Or, as Arts and Entertainment editor Bob Sokolsky puts it, "things just haven't been going very well for Rob Lowe."
Sokolsky notes that his "Brothers and Sisters" series is falling into soap opera and Lowe may be on the verge of leaving.
Meanwhile, he is appearing in the TV movie "Too Late to Say Goodbye." And Sokolsky says, that hasn't been a bed of roses for him either. Especially since he is cast as a dentist with anger management issues and is accused of murdering his wife.
Adapted from an Ann Rule novel. Sokolsky says the film runs an erratic course, hampered by an overuse of flashback sequences.
It's one saving factor, he notes is Michelle Hunt's fine portrayal of an investigating detective. But while that might suggest her returning in a similar role, Sokolsky says that is not enough to salvage this production.
