The ultimate preparation
20 April 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

What is the Boy Scout motto, 'be prepared'. I suppose the ultimate in preparation for those who believe in the Bible literally is to prepare for the Second Coming of Jesus. Some say it's going to happen any year from now and soon. And if people believe it they will act accordingly, using technology that was not available even a generation ago.

Which is what the subject of this Law And Order episode was about. A man who was a believer was murdered and his e-mail to be sent out in case he was raptured out of this dimension got sent. Which sets off a chain of events for detectives Jeremy Sisto and Anthony Anderson involving one guy working within this organization who is making money hand over fist from these gullible people. I won't say what his racket is, but trust me, it's a pip.

You can't say that John Sharian doesn't think fast on his feet though. When corned by the cops he runs into the Iranian embassy for protection claiming asylum. Again I can't reveal, but a very neat trick is pulled to get him to face US justice.

Good episode and I will say that the true believers were not treated harshly in this story.
