Did You Know?


In the opening scene of the episode, as Dustin Maker is being placed in his cell, the Corrections Officer tells him "chow is at oh-eighteen-hundred" apparently trying to use military time for 6:00pm. But, since 6:00pm is "1800" on a 24-hour military clock, you wouldn't say "oh-eighteen hundred" would simply be "eighteen hundred." See more »

Who do they think they're kidding!
11 July 2015 | by Bronco46See all my reviews

A police force like the one portrayed in this show would quickly lose it's effectiveness. A someone who has worked for a long time in an inner-city ER. I can saw with some authority people in these kinds of jobs don's allow themselves to become involved in what's going on around them. "It's part of the job". Once you get beyond that you gradually become less and less effective. And burn out. Everyone in the criminal justice system portray here is racked with sympathy and empathy. And who doesn't know that there is no death penalty in California. A kid the age of perpetrator would surely know that. And weather or not they would be convicted of a crime with special circumstances they would never get the death penalty. Even if the death penalty were some how reinstated. It would never be retroactive. Watching prosecutors react in such a shocked and concerned manner that a mass murderer would plead guilty is pure Hollywood. Only from the minds of Hollywood writers could something like that spring. This whole show is starting to sink into some really boring story telling. I'm starting to think Murder in the First means kill the audience first.
