Drawing to an inside straight
19 February 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The debut of Law And Order: Trial By Jury involves ADAs Bebe Neuwirth and Amanda Carlson taking on a case with no body and a strong alternative suspect. One good alternative and a few others. An aspiring Broadway actress is missing and Fred Dalton Thompson feels like taking a shot at Tony Bill a Broadway producer who has one bad reputation. Yet it might be that which convicts him.

Future Criminal Intent regular Annabella Sciorra plays Bill's defense attorney, hired deliberately by Bill to counteract the two women prosecuting him. The better not to raise feminist hackles over a man who is an alpha male to the extreme.

This debut was also one of the last appearances of Jerry Orbach who has left the NYPD and joined the DA's staff of investigators. I was shocked to see him in a closeup with his shirt clearly too big for him. No doubt the cancer was sadly taking its toll.

No body and a good alternative. Neuwirth and Carlson are really drawing to an inside straight.
