  • Weak episode, but still better than basically all of the recent courtroom dramas on television!

    7.5
    Interestingly enough, though I love Law and Order in general, and this idea is fascinating, this is a weak episode. The parts set in the courtroom are actually rather dull, which is a shame because so many Law and Order episodes really shine during their second half. The idea that the mental health of a suspect could be so vital to the jury's decision is interesting, and the final confrontation between brothers is nice. However, loads of other episodes in this season are much more gripping -- such as "Thrill", "Blood", "Ritual", and "Under the Influence". So don't judge the whole season by this one episode!moreless
