TV Review: “Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders”

Martha Trydahl Martha Trydahl Photo via IMDb.

On the heels of The People v. O.J. Simpson’s success, NBC is attempting to throw their hat into the ring with the exceptionally long-titled, Law Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders.

Unfortunately, in this new “historical true crime” genre, The Menendez Murders pales in comparison. First of all, the Menendez case lacks much of the lingering public interest that the O.J. Simpson trial has. Second, The Menendez Murders feels cheap and thrown together. It is drowning in sea of bad wigs and lame writing.

The series is stretched out to the max at eight hour-long episodes,

‘Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders’ Fails To Break Out Of OJ’s Shadow

One of the surprise hits of 2016 was FX’s limited series American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson. Despite depicting one of the biggest news stories of the 1990s, The People v. O.J. Simpson succeeded because it subverted some of the common narratives and stereotypes about the O.J. Simpson trial, and explored the social and racial issues around the case. Because television networks love to copy previous hits, it was no surprise when NBC announced that it was making its own limited series about a notable murder trial from the 1990s, Law Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders. Despite booking Edie Falco as its star, Law Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders does not even come close to reaching the level of The People v. O.J. Simpson (this review will focus on,

‘Law & Order True Crime’ Star Heather Graham Talks Menendez Brothers’ ‘Dark’ Therapist (Video)

Heather Graham stars on “Law Order True Crime” as Judalon Smyth, the ex-girlfriend of the Menendez brothers’ therapist who went from key prosecution witness to testifying for the defense.

“It’s a really interesting case,” Graham said in an interview with TheWrap’s Stuart Brazell. “You find out so many interesting details,” including about abuse of Lyle and Erik Menendez the brothers say happened at the hands of their own parents.

Smyth testified in 1993 that she was “brainwashed” by her then-boyfriend Dr. L. Jerome Oziel (played on the show by “The Good Wife” alum Josh Charles) when she went to the police to inform them that she had overheard the brothers confess to killing their parents. She also said Oziel pressured the brothers to discuss the killings during recorded sessions, tapes which became part of the prosecution’s case.

Edie Falco (‘Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders’): Will she make awards history thanks to NBC’s limited …

Edie Falco already has a place in the Emmy record books as the only woman to win lead actress trophies for both a comedy series (“Nurse Jackie”) and a drama series (“The Sopranos”). (Carroll O’Connor holds the title for men with his wins for “All in the Family” and “In the Heat of the Night.”) With her stellar performance in NBC’s limited series “Law Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders,” she is now in place to increase her Emmy record title to being the first woman to win all three of the lead acting trophies: comedy, drama and limited series/movie.

Reviews have been strong for Falco in this “Law and Order” spinoff that takes a look back at two Beverly Hills brothers, Erik and Lyle Menendez, who murdered their parents back in the 1990s. Falco plays their lawyer Leslie Abramson who tried to get the brothers acquitted

Heather Graham stars as Judalon Smyth in Law Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders, and spoke to FanSided about her quirky, case-breaking role.

Heather Graham is front and center in tonight’s Law Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders, as the NBC crime drama puts her character Judalon Smyth on the stand to testify about what she knows regarding the infamous murder case.

It’s a different and also pivotal role for Graham, as it was Judalon Smyth who helped break the Menendez Murders case open when she came to the police with what she’d overheard from Dr. Jerome Oziel (Josh Charles) after Oziel spurned her for his wife.

Before tonight’s Law Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders episode, FanSided spoke to Heather Graham about how she perceived Judalon Smyth and what it was like for her to work with Josh Charles on such a strange relationship.

Tried and True – True Crime Details from Local Menendez Juror

| News, Sand Canyon Journal | 2 hours ago

It isn’t often that Sand Canyon has a prison insider. But viewers of “NBC News” following episodes of “Law Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders” can see local resident Betty Oldfield share what she knows about the famous trial 23 years ago. She served as a substitute on the jury for Erik Menendez during the first trial, which ended in a deadlock. After a second trial, in 1996, the brothers were convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

NBC began airing the “Law Order True Crime” series on Sep. 26, which will be presented in eight one-hour segments. It is a drama starring Emmy Award-winner Edie
