Did You Know?


Denatured alcohol is ethanol (the type of alcohol used in liquor) that has additives to make it poisonous, bad tasting, foul smelling or nauseating, to discourage recreational consumption. Denatured alcohol is used as a solvent and as fuel for alcohol burners and camping stoves. In some countries, sales of alcoholic beverages are heavily taxed. In order to avoid paying beverage taxes on alcohol that is not meant to be consumed, the alcohol must be "denatured", or treated with added chemicals to make it unpalatable. See more »

A poor copy of American Jihad (Law and Order)
10 February 2020 | by dawlish03See all my reviews

The 'American turned Jihadi murderer' has been done to death (pardon the pun) on various US law and order/various cop shows and this one was a very poor copy of my review title; American Jihad (2002). I have only seen episodes 1 and 4 of this cheap Law and Order knock- off, and based on what I've seen so far, I doubt that I will follow it through the rest of what appears to be only one complete series. Maybe there is a reason that it didn't make it any further than that. Additionally, was it coincidence that Peter Coyote as D.A. Jerry Hardin is a dead ringer for Jack McCoy? Thankfully here in the UK the original Law and Order together with Criminal Intent and SVU are shown on a regular basis, so this poor effort will not be missed.
