Political and Legal
13 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It took me a while to realize that there is a reason this series has survived for so long. The best thing I like is that personal lives have been kept to a minimum, and the legal aspect, binded by laws and manipulating or fitting the case in the rules to serve justice, is what keeps the boat afloat as in many cases, disappointing as it is, the right thing is not done.

This particular episode takes a sleaze based homicide to a surprising political twist which is refreshingly fascinating for a telly version. I never watch West Wing but I do like the window view on a ferris wheel, where you are carried from ground level to a surprising height. Fantastic though the position of the main characters are, this series seems to carry a little less of the non-sense and superfluous gimmicks of most other contemporary series of this genre.

I would recommend this episode to most fans of law & order series, svu is like cartoon when compared to this series, not disrespecting the subject matter of the former.
