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,

Ga. Mom Allegedly Murders Young Sons and Then Video-Calls Their Father to Show Him the Scene

An Atlanta mom is accused of murdering two of her young sons and then placing a video call to the children’s father to show him the scene, according to multiple local news reports.

Lamora Williams, 24, is charged with two counts of murder, according to the Atlanta Police Department.

Authorities have not released her children’s cause of death, but Atlanta police said that according to a preliminary investigation, the unnamed boys — ages 1 and 2 – “received burn marks on their bodies at some point, possibly from the stove.”

Williams allegedly told police she had left the children in the care of a relative about noon on Friday and found them dead about 11:30 that night, when she returned home.

However, “at this time investigators do not believe the children’s mother left them with a caregiver,” according to the police statement.

The father of the boys, Jameel Penn, told local TV station WSB and Read more at: http://people.com/crime/atlanta-mom-murders-sons-video-calls-their-father/

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 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.

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.
