It’s Alive

Last week we found out that a corpse can be the most important plot point in a movie other then Weekend at Bernies. Since the corpse was so dang important we wanted to see what other acting gigs required those sorts of acting chops. This week we meet a very much alive Patrick McAllister in the delivery room where the babies are alive... and thats somehow an issue?
