Last night's episode was totally routine legal soap in its various continuing story arcs and in the case of the week which was a lawsuit against a filmmaker whose documentary may have caused the suicide of a young woman. I'm really not pushing this show, but perhaps suggesting that there are some episodes that are worth streaming or watching reruns just because they were interesting.
I agree. The way that I connected this as being a technology show is about a show that felt with news about computer/iPhone/iPad/iTunes/iPod and so on. I guess that is why in the adverts for the show did not seem all that interesting.
My bringing this up here was simply to note that the show offered some really good episodes in terms of offering thoughtful debate on the social, political and economic implications of the somewhat unexpected worldwide use of 21st Century technology (something like the smart phone with video and Twitter). We shouldn't simply consider cool technology in the abstract, whether the iPad 3 is going to have a sharper picture.
Law and Order seems to be good at the "ripped from the headlines" type of crimes ... and they have not done technology issues? Or do the reviewers not consider them a "serious" show?
This is one reviewer. And the crime procedurals haven't dealt with something quite as far removed from routine American life as internet technology, the Arab Spring, and the different life and death results facing the peers of the American 18-49 demo.
To me it is disappointing that the show's reach isn't wider. Last night was pretty typical since it moved to Sunday. It was #4 in the demo but #1 by a wide margin in its 9:00 time slot with the 50+ crowd.
