disturbing but impressive
8 November 2007 | by kiri-laingSee all my reviews

Unfortunately I didn't get to see this episode from the beginning, but I too found it disturbing in many ways. I can't say I blame Bruner's first lawyer- I could have hardly stayed in the same room with him, let alone tried to defend him. Besides his clear murderous psychopathy, Bruner, and indeed the rest of the episode, raised difficult questions about the nature of law, punishment, and what is right.

As for Schwimmer, I was really impressed with how his character was used. At first I wanted to slap him, but by the end I think I would have been unhappy no matter how the verdict had gone. I still blame him a little for actually checking about whether Bruner told the truth. He should have known the conflict this would put him in. Nevetheless, this kind of depth in a one-off character is rare and appreciable. Other than 'Fallout'(2006) 'Bodies' is probably my favourite episode.

PS Notice when they asked the first lawyer if he'd threatened her, she was silent? I wonder if he told her what he told Schwimmer..
