The Inspiration for Law and Order
26 June 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

American Justice is perhaps one of the finest hours of American television on the arts & entertainment network. It is well-researched and fascinatingly put together to give one of the best hours. It is informative and condensed to one or two hours. There are terrific episodes featured about real criminal cases like O.J. Simpson, Menendez Brothers, and others to name a few. I found it to be one of the most captivating shows on television to watch repeatedly and continuously over the years. Maybe I just like Bill Kurtis because he always provides us with information and an explanation on how a crime is solved or the tribulations of trials and investigations. There are lots of stories about real people. This show probably inspired Law and Order but why watch fiction, when you can watch the real thing on Arts and Entertainment. They don't dumb it down for the audience. They educate and inform.
