  • Deaf woman shot a man on camera....

    7.9
    Ok, this is what i expect from a realistic show, a suspect that is a the correct suspect and a guilty finding. Just like "honorable man" the jury do have to uphold the law and not get persuaded by sympathy. Btw, the opening scene is priceless...they sure did have a good defense even though without ever seeing this episode you would think with the consecutive losses the d.a has taken and the obvious crime a guilty verdict will be given out. I do believe that the d.a has taken a large unexplained number of losses. I mean come on, they cant even get a man that raped a dead body anymore time than 60 days. The wedding was nice also, bobby took a little break from the court room i see.moreless

    Wow, this one really tugs on the heart strings. A mother openly, and coldly kills the man who allegedly raped and murdered her 7 year old daughter and it is up to Ellenor to defend her. Seems so easy, if you were on the jury what would you do? Well, the easy part is saying what you would do but the hard part is what should you do. The legal argument is very different to the moral one. Add to the mix a DA (the likeable Richard Bay played by Jason Kravitz) who has lost a series of high profile cases and who’s job is on the line so is refusing to “plead out”. Guaranteed Ellenor’s closing argument will have everyone watching in tears.moreless
