Would Prefer A Crime Story
24 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was the worst propaganda piece I've ever seen on this show in five years, and I've seen a few. They are always Left Wing, of course, because that's where Law & Order and its star actor lean heavily but usually it's not this heavy-handed.

The whole show turned out to be - not a story about a murder by some computer geek against other one from a competing company - but a tirade against "torture against terrorists at Guantanamo Bay." The last 10 minutes was nothing but one speech after another by Det. Groren" (Vincent D'Onofrio who, reportedly, needed psychiatric help after the last Presidential election!). It was so in-your-face that it was embarrassing to watch. Where was the subtly?

Memo to Law & Order writers: give us the crime case, not your politics.

Anyway, DJ Qualls was good as "Robbie Boatman," as was Jennifer Van Dyck as "Dr. Katrina Pynchon." Other than that, this was a ridiculous episode designed for one purpose: what I stated above. It was not to give us what it is supposed to: a crime story.
