Goofs

The sniper would need to fire the rifle several second BEFORE the duelers fired for the bullet to arrive on target when they fired. It can take several seconds for the bullet to travel a mile. The sniper would need to know precisely how long after the "aim" order the "fire" order would come. See more »

Beware Of Pols Who Look Too Good
4 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This must have been a very difficult episode for the Law & Orders writers to do because it went against their extreme politically-correct bias. They actually made a woman politician - one which had a scumbag husband - part of cover-up in having her husband murdered. Of course, she wasn't part of the murder plan but she knew about it and stayed silent so, at the end of the episode when this is reluctantly divulged (last 30 seconds) you know she'll arrested, too.

"Det. Eames" shows her bias in this story, being so prejudiced for the female candidate she can't judge correctly. Thank goodness she has a more objective partner in "Det. Robert Goren," who winds up putting two-and-two together while Eames just frowns. She contributed nothing to the case, in this one.

Nonetheless, the focus of the story is really the husband, played by a George Carlin-lookalike: Xander Berkeley. He was fascinating, as "George Pagolis" and did a terrific job playing him, sounding very natural. Meanwhile, Donna Murphy was convincing as his political wife "Maureen." The whole story starts with a unique aspect: two men re-enacting the famous duel between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr.....but in this updated version, a sniper from a long ways away interrupts the festivities - and shoots the wrong man!. Later, it's discovered why the wrong guy was shot and who was involved. Overall, it's interesting and certainly is a comment on the slanted TV news reporting of the day, as well as how our own bias enter into how we look at people.
