In 1999, Danish toy company Lego made a huge announcement: it had signed a license with Lucasfilm Ltd. to produce a series of toys based on the Star Wars films, the first time in the company’s history that it made such a deal. The move wasn’t without major qualms within the company; for decades, it had eschewed such deals, but competition from other toy brands loomed, and company officials worried about being overtaken. The decision would ultimately propel Lego to become one of the largest toy companies in the world.

Rod Demery and John Nicholson

Rod Demery and John Nicholson Homicide detective, Rod Demery, races against the clock to catch criminals in Shreveport, Louisiana. IMDB.com

 

This article has a spoiler for Damsel In Distress which is available on IDGo.

Rod Demery and re-creation actor John Nicholson are very attractive men. If I met one of them I would probably say something inappropriate that I could relive at 3 am. However, I don’t want to lose sight of the fact that the stories deal with murder. We should never forget the victim has loved ones.

With that said, this episode has John Nicholson. In bed! Shirtless! 

I will just leave that. Right There.

I will just leave that. Right There.

I am a faithful Homicide Hunter fan. Lt Joe Kenda saved Investigation Discovery from being good in an ordinary way.

Investigation Discovery shows have allowed us to have a look behind the scenes at the inner workings of a homicide detective. We eat it up with a spoon!!

Murder Chose Me

  • Murder Chose Me is such a good show that I have to admit it feels a little like I am cheating on The Homicide Hunter Lt. Joe Kenda.
  • Murder Chose Me came along and Rod Demery gave us another Kenda. We trust Kenda with our very hearts. Demery is sincere and to the point. Like Joe Kenda, he is never condescending and we need people we can believe in.
  • Murder Chose Me is the life and solved crimes of Detective Rod Demery.  Thanks to Investigation Discovery, we are ID Addicts.

John Nicholson as Detective Rod Demery in Murder Chose Me

This season sees the return of re-creation lead actor John Nicholson, writer Curtis (Curt) Paine and director Jeffery (Jeff) Woods

Some of ID’s reenactment actors are not very good. The actors need more experience and some are painful to watch. Jupiter Entertainment, is the television production company that brings Homicide Hunter, Murder Chose Me and some of our other favorites to Investigation Discovery. They manage to bring us talented re-creation actors.

Nicholson is an excellent actor. As a “Method” actor he is trained to let us know “that there is more going on within the actor than just what the lines say.” He takes on the roll like a suit. When Nicholson walks into a room, as Demery it is taken for granted that he is in charge. Of course, his muscular build adds to the way he moves into that room. He is handsome and always looks so crisp you can practically smell his aftershave lotion. The re-creations are stories are about the worst possible thing that could happen to a family and he doesn’t take his responsibility lightly. We appreciate his hard work, he gives us a calm yet commanding performance that leaves us feeling he truly understands the sensitive nature of this role. His performance as Demery is with an effort that appears effortless, the epitome of genuine feeling.

Murder Chose Me airs Wednesday night on Investigation Discovery.

In January, the popular media streaming app Plex announced a new VR app that allowed users to watch movies and TV shows on their own or together with friends in VR. It was a cool idea, though compatibility was restricted to just the Google Daydream. Now, there’s good news for Plex users with different VR headsets who want to lounge around with their friends but not actually be with them: Plex has brought its VR movie app to the Gear VR courtesy of the Oculus store.

There are three environments you can watch movies in, including a luxury apartment, a deep space scene known as “the void,” and a drive-in theatre — the first two are free but the drive-in requires a Plex Pass subscription. Once you start a movie or show, the content takes up a…
