Review of "Law
and Order: True Crime - The Menendez Brothers" 10/5/17 by
Airs Tuesdays 10/9c on NBC.
I always enjoy the "Law and Order" shows, but this one
seems to be copying FX's "American Crime Story" rather than
following the usual Dick Wolf model. Instead of the O.J.
Simpson case, this one is about the Menendez Brothers.
The acting and writing are solid. There is little
mystery left to us about the crime, since we know what
happens in the end. I guess if you're younger, you might not
have been around for the case, so it will be a surprise in
that sense. Still, it's compelling and worth watching.
The actors do a great job. I would keep watching if I
had time, but I prefer to watch mostly superhero or scifi
shows, aside for a few really outstanding shows, such as
"Longmire," "Grantchester" or "Major Crimes."

America forever. When the Menendez brothers were tried
on national TV for brutally killing their parents in
Beverly Hills, their story became a national obsession.
Now, the first edition of this anthology series delves
into the players, the crime and the media circus,
detailing the day-to-day battles of the trial and
unveiling the shocking truth of what really went down
when the cameras stopped rolling.
