Just hours after pedophile Carl Mullaly was outed on a so-called reality news program he is found murdered in his apartment. There is little sympathy for Mullaly and Detectives Ed Green and Nina Cassady first focus on one of the victims neighbors who is quite happy that the man is dead. They soon learn that a young woman, Hannah Welch, was seen at Mullaly's apartment soon after the program aired and although she describes herself as his girlfriend, she is clearly abhorred by the fact that he was discovered to be a pedophile. When it's revealed that she was actually one of Mullaly's victims and that she had been brought to New York to confront her molester as part of a new TV show, Jack McCoy decides to go after the show's producer Ellie Harper.

"I'm a journalist"
4 January 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Jesse Martin and Milena Govich catch a case involving the death of a man who raped an 8 year old girl and some 20 years later she takes vengeance on him with a hunting knife. The whole thing was caught on video tape because the perpetrator Zoe Lister was doing it for a television reality series pilot.

Not that anyone told her to kill the man, but these things will happen. But not on Sam Waterston's watch. He goes after producer Nadia Dejani with a depraved indifference homicide charge.

Hard for me to be objective as I have a strong bias against reality television. Years ago when presenting the award for makeup at the Oscars Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe still a married couple remarked that without makeup people in film would look like those in documentaries.

For myself I like a clear demarcation between reality and entertainment. This kind of stuff belongs on the news not on prime time entertainment shows.

Many times on the Law And Order franchise shows you get a defendant who has no clue of what they've done in facilitating a major crime. Thus it is with Dejani.

Sad to say there looks like no end to these kind of shows.
