  • A wonderful episode that opened eyes.

    9.5
    Now first off i would like to say that for one i think that helen being friends with the whole firm is not best for the district attorney integrity, and im surprised she never been questioned on that severely,right after a big case where she is up against eugene and when the verdict is read, she looks at eugene knowing that her FRIEND is fed up with getting murderers back on the street. So at the end of the day she walks to his office but was approach by a lawyer telling her that bobby just threaten his client and instead of investigating it or at least ask bobby whats going on (he did go too far) she tells him to call the cops. Helen is a very sex woman (objection, relevance.......sustained). Ok, helen is a smart woman but she needs to get perspective,just a week ago richard gave her the speech and it seems as if that wont work anymore,ok enough about her. For another episode the attention of bobby has been 100% on his friend who is going crazy before his second trial begin. I agree with the judge with letting the tape be admissible because it shows a state of mind of the suspect. Jimmy case was the comic relief this episode. Even though i dont see why any defendant would laugh, i really didnt see anything funny. A judge tells the story of ray charles and Gladys Knight troubled childhood and how they made it to the top,maybe it was a bit tasteless but the judge had good intent and its not so hard to listen to a story thats inspirational without laughing.But jimmy countered the judge good intent with a patronized story of his own. He was held in contempt, and later got released by a now confused judge, way to go jimmy. Great episode, and eugene got to see that every client he has isnt a murderer. I did not like that statement of "see you next time" when the client got acquitted . Bad eugene!moreless
