Private Dick

I don't get the here! network. I mean, I get it -here! calls itself America's first gay television network- I'm just not willing to fork over the $300 a month Time Warner would probably want for full access to the cable universe. Anyway, here! kicked off a series of private eye movies recently, based on the Albany detective of Richard Stevenson's Don Strachey novels. Third Man Out, centers around the murder of a gay activist who'd been outing politicos at the Capitol; Strachey, no doubt with inside info from his assembly aide partner, sets out to sift through the corrupt halls of the LOB. Ironweed it ain't.
