I saw Hail Caesar last weekend and liked it. It's not the best work the Coen brothers have ever done but it is far from the worst. Recommended, 7 Stars out of 10. Haven't yet decided whether to buy...

Yeah, I thought the wealthy Bucks County lady and the redeveloper guy were cut from the same bolt of cloth. Neither had the slightest bit of interest in the plight of the poor people who were being...

Thanks for the link to the terrific NYT review of this week's show! It was funny and charming. The critic who wrote it, Louis Bayard, gets Downton Abby.

I am really enjoying Travolta's performance as Robert Shapiro. While it has been a bit of a sendup of Hollywood lawyers generally and Shapiro himself specifically, I have found it hugely...

Correct. It was widely reported that Ripper Street Series 4 was to be put up on Amazon Prime on January 15. Alas, it hasn't happened yet. Series 1-3 are now available on Netflix but, despite spending...

Gillian Anderson can also be seen in the BBC's sumptuous new production of War and Peace. There, though, her part is pretty small.

I have loved Anderson in The Fall. There, she is perfectly cast...

In the real world, jury deliberations are a messy process. If the jurors pay attention to the evidence, most of the time they will know whether the defendant did it. In the O.J. case, it seems to me...

There's a reason the term, "Jury Nullification" exists in the law: it happens. As I said in my previous post, I can't accept that the jury decided to acquit O.J. despite the overwhelming evidence of...

I simply cannot accept that the jury's verdict was based on "reasonable doubt." My analysis has always been that the jury willfully disregarded the conclusive DNA evidence and the cut on O.J.'s hand...

If 40 years as a trial lawyer taught me anything it was that lawsuits are almost always won or lost on the facts and brilliant tactics rarely make a difference. That was what made the O.J. case so...

I dropped Arrow at the same time as I cancelled my season pass to The Flash, so I confused which show had run how long.

There were so many prosecution and police screwups, they looked like the Keystone Cops. That's why I am so enjoying the show. O.J.'s stupidity and denials on one side and the serially incompetent...

It wasn't entirely Clark's fault. I thought the biggest mistake was made by her boss, Gil Garcetti, when he filed the case in downtown LA instead of Simi Valley, where Nicolle had lived. In the...

Yep anytime somebody tells me that I can easily confirm his assertion by checking it on Google but refuses to post a link to a concrete source, my "bulls*t" meter starts clanging at 100 dB. :)
