For the people

Post by Dana » Sun Mar 18, 2018 5:59 pm

I watched this show last night. It is about prosecutors and public defenders in the u.s. district court of new York, also known as the mother court. I liked it-not much suspense yet, but good story and interesting characters.

I almost taped this, but then decided against it.

I'm just finding some of the shows that I get on this new cable service. A Lot of classics. I did tape a bunch of them.
"Keep your 'sites' on The Rifleman"
"The Rifleman hits the 'Mark' every week on abc."

This is a new favorite show. So far there are no big reveals, but the show does make you think and tear up. hopefully not a spoiler, but there is tear-jerking scene about a young Jewish defense attorney talking to his father about defending a neo-Nazi white supremacist of a hate crime (attempted murder).

Although I did pass this up, not sure now this was a good idea. Maybe I can catch it online with my cable server.

I did tape Deception, was not impressed with it. It just didn't hold my interest.

I looked up Sandra Flood. I don't know if she goes by Sandra but I did find her as Susannah Flood. I'm not familiar with her so I'm not sure I have the right person.

If it's the one I'm thinking of, I would say yes, she does look like a modern day Doris Day.

My mistake. The name is Susannah flood. Sandra is one of the characters.

The show is back. I loved how seth stood up to Leonard. Is there going to be a triangle between sandra, Leonard, and Kate. I suspected Roger and Jill were more than friends. I had no idea swatting is a thing. I loved the hug between Sandra and the defendant's mother and the other hug between Leonard and the victim's son.

Thursday night's episode was gutwrenching. Tina, the court clerk, let the seven year old son of a truck driver who had returned to new York illegally to be a trial witness, stay in the court.

I enjoy how the show is trying to bring up issues. In this episode, it was privately run correctional facilities and kickbacks. However, maybe the courts share space-giving them the benefit of the doubt-but juvenile court is generally not in a federal building.
