April 29, 1992. On the first day of the major L.A. riots, Becker stretches his practice and defends a theme-park employee fired for inappropriate behavior while in costume. Meanwhile, Rollins continues his leave of absence to be elected for City Counsel and canvass the riot torn South-Central district. Mullaney brings Zoey home to his house from the hospital to recover after the shooting. Becker's former secretary, Gwen Taylor, begins her law internship. With the departure of Grace Van Owen, C.J. Lamb, Alex DePalma, Frank Kittredge, and Susan Bloom, the firm hires Daniel Morales, a widower from Santa Barbara, as a partner, and he brings his infant daughter to work on his very first day. Brackman and Markowitz are caught in the riots when Brackman is falsely arrested for looting while on his way to the wedding chapel, and Markowitz is badly beaten by a mob. Written by Anonymous

The beginning of the worst disaster to afflict a major show
13 April 2007 | by (Valley Stream, New York) – See all my reviews

John Tinker and John Masius almost destroyed the show with their ignorance of law and their soap oriented storytelling. No show in history had such a disaster befall it when NBC hired those two to take over L.A. Law. Certainly the sixth season wasn't great but it had good episodes. Tinker and Masius (who did do great work on St. Elsewhere) flat out did not know what to do with L.A. Law. This episode which terribly botched the L.A. riots showed what the show was in for. Instead of focusing on the legal ramifications of the riots which I am sure David E. Kelley would have done Tinker and Masius had Stuart beaten, Brackman and arrested and a whole lot of other ridiculous stuff. Luckily their reign of terror only lasted for 14 mind-numbingly awful episodes until William Finkelstein took over and in dramatic fashion saved the show and did well enough for it to get an eighth season before it went off the air.
