The bloodstains in the shop are not consistent with a shotgun firing buckshot at medium range. There should be far less blood on the walls, and it should be spread in a much wider, less consistent pattern. See more »

Average episode, but....
4 August 2018 | by vn_larsen1See all my reviews

I'm glad someone, even if it was just a single line from a reporter at the very end of the episode, finally addressed the liberal bias Jack McCoy and his office so openly displays. It has frustrated me throughout the entirety of this series.
