SPARKING!!! Identification
1 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

You just never know who is going to be a pyromaniac!! I thought Tom Verica's performance in this movie was sensational!! Neil Patrick Harris was the perennial misunderstood reprobate who resorted to pyromania as a hobby!! It is of course a sickness to be afflicted with such a lethal obsession!!! Tom Verica always plays the well mannered right side of the law...Currently, he is directing episodes of "Boston Legal" the talent is there.. Even on L.A. Law I thought Tom Verica was one of the best parts of the show!! When you think about it, Tom Verica is pretty sensational in basically every way!! Overall, "Not Our Son" evoked a social commentary which SPARKED!! (Pun intended) an identification with the serious illness of pyromania!! I enjoyed this made for T.V film very much and thought it served a very useful purpose!!
