  • New York will Go Broke!

    6.0
    Having failed to nail Mr. Klein, who was working a Global Warming Swindle, and confiscate his ill-gotten gains, . Cutter goes after Chad, his step-son, gets Chad's step-sister to perjure herself in court and forges a report from the pathologist to get Chad busted. But he doesn't dare tell McCoy what he's done, knowing that the city will be sued for BILLIONS when his abuses of process are exposed.

    After a while all the episodes seem to be the same, but that's okay. Homicide detectives see a lot of the same crimes over and over again. The difference here is that it's the dynamics between Lupo and Bernard....and...Cutter and Rubirosa. Not to mention the cops against the DA's.



    This episode was predictable...mobsters and deception. The seemingly good gone bad. Young man taking advantage of young woman. We know what's coming by the end of the show, we just want to see if their was a twist. And Cutter played the naive girl like a charm, feeding him the guilty half-brother.



    Law and Order is like an old comfortable shoe. We know what to expect but we enjoy it anyway.moreless
  • A truck driver who is linked to the russian mob.

    7.0
    The episode was average, and somewhat predictable, sort of boring to, not suspensful or diffirent. Though i rather watch this many other shows. This episode hasn't nothing much going on, and i can not say much about it. It was boring, tastless and well... predictable. You know who killed the mother and father and what that he was greedy, though step-son and step-sister liking each other was kinda strange and not what i expected and also Cutter faking the medical report made me a little sequmish, out of character for me and if they make an episode where Mike & connie are dating the show has totally jumped the shark adios, Vamp.moreless
  • Not bad, but nothing great.

    7.2
    This was a unique episode of Law and Order, what with Michael and Connie tracking a case to surrogate court in order to get a confession and put a man away for a double homicide, but this was not one of the better installments this season.



    A noteworthy guest star could've helped, but frankly I'm getting tired of these episodes where there's corruption inside a trucking/construction company. We've already had about four this year.



    There was also a lack of twists in the plot that you have come to expect from Law and Order throughout its entire run. Still a fun episode, but a 7.2 score is more than generous.moreless
