DETROIT 187 “Ice Man/Malibu” Review

This week’s episode of Detroit 187 centered around two people that at first glance seemed to be exact opposites of each other. One was a hollywood star in town filming a movie, something that has become increasingly popular in Detroit with the tax advantages the State of Michigan has offered Hollywood. The second person was a homeless man found encased in a block of ice in an old, vacant building. However, as the detectives soon found out, both deceased persons had "fallen" from what they once were.

It wasn’t hard to guess that an A-list Hollywood star’s downfall would be drugs. However, in typical Detroit 187 fashion, the writers threw in the twist that Kirsten had decided to go back into rehab, which is what ultimately led to her death. It was not all that surprising that her production assistant was involved as he was one of the first to talk about how people hated her, but the murder was not really hate driven. Also, that bracelet? It did not remotely look unisex to me. As I found myself chuckling when the director and producer were basically so nonchalant about their star’s death and more concerned with the studio and the fact that the movie was going to be shut down, I thought about how realistic that seemed. How sad is it that someone only cares about you for the money you bring them, or in the case of her "sober coach", how much they pay you? No one really cared for Kirsten.
