As if the Menendez Brothers Wrote the Script
17 February 2018 | by jburtonprod-802-759029See all my reviews

This is a very well acted, directed and produced mini-series, however the writing is an absolute horror show totally lacking in social responsibility. What I expected was something similar to 'The People vs O.J. Simpson', where you are given the facts and have both sides, prosecution and defense presented equally.

This does NOT do that at all. It was as if the Menendez brothers themselves wrote the script. We have an overwhelmingly sympathetic portrayal of the brothers, with a dewy eyed Eric looking all handsome and tragic while we get a sickening amount of detail of ALLEGED assault presented as if it were bible truth.

The facts are quite different from what was presented in the series. Yes, Jose Menendez was a strict father and he may have subjected the boys to some abuse but he also might've been a deeply disappointed father who had realized early on he had given birth to two sociopaths. We can never know because the Menendez brothers brutally, premeditatedly and callously murdered both parents.

It presents the judge of the case as if he was biased when in truth he never should've allowed ANY of the allegations of abuse into the trial. They should've been left for the sentencing. What we get from the L&O series is a public damning the Menendez parents and the deification of Leslie Abramson. There are a number things factually wrong with this series. You can find those online.

I am really just short of saying 'shame on you' L&O for spending so much effort, money and time glorifying two men who committed such a monstrous crime. Hell with that, shame on you Law and Order. There, I said it.
