  • When a hitman is gunned down while trying to gun down a tough-to-the-point-of-sadistic judge, police trace the employer as a nerdy white-collar criminal looking at 45 years from her hands. The employer claims that he was coerced into it.moreless

    Yay! This episode happens to be the first I ever watched, and the episode which sucked me into the series.



    I had been watching all these other crappy CSIish crap, where everything is so dramatic, the good guy is a genius, the good guy is arrogant, always gets the last word, never ever loses, makes up forensics...



    And then I watch this episode, which is almost average for Law and Order, yet a billion points beyond CSI.



    The plotting was smart, leaving the ending uncertain. Did the arsonist set the whole thing up and screwed the system, or did the accountant put on an act to look coerced?moreless
