  • Unbelievably lame

    Unfortunately, this episode was common in L&O's later years - sloppy research and characters acting Dumb on Cue hidden by unrealistic legal grandstanding and yet more of a combination of Dick Wolf's hatred of rich people and teenagers. He should look into that. It's a bit of an unhealthy obsession for him.

    I don't really expect accuracy from this period of L&O, but when both the parents of the killer and the father of the victim suborned perjury and threatened witnesses, and McCoy merely shrugged off these quite-serious *crimes*, that broke my stretchy suspenders of disbelief. This episode wasn't helped by the fact that students killing each other over grades and plagiarism is a hoary cliche that didn't need to be revisited.

    Still, it was nice to see Kathleen Turner again.
  • OK episode.

    While they've done this storyline before, I thought the ep was ok. It wasn't the best this season.

    In response to the SAT thing, the max is 2400 now. When they added the writing section, they changed the max score. So a 2350 is entirely possible, but very unlikely. It would take an absolute genius to score that high.

    So apparently they did do their high-school research.

    Alex\'s girlfriend told the detctives: \"If he scored a 2350 on the SAT\'s, he\'d get special treatment, too.\"

    Gee, the only way I could score a 2350 would be to take the SAT three times and then add my scores together (since 1600 is the max you can score).

    So, they missed out on some high-school researech.
  • Same plot.

    Although, this type of episode...(rich kid kills someone, parents try to buy their way out, blame his actions on some drug, video game etc)...has been done before, I enjoyed it.

    Overall, this was still an enjoyable episode, though it has the same theme, same plot line as past episodes before.
  • Another rich boy goes to jail

    I was so bored with this episode I turned it off half way thru and then came back for the end. I'm normally a Law and Order junky but the show has outlived it's popularity. This one was another rich boy going to jail because his parents think they can buy the legal system.
