Law & Disorder
I suppose it is my own fault, what with my constant fawning over Jesse and Angie, and brazenly claiming that they "make everything better" and "are awesome". Of course the writers are going to seize upon that as a dare! "Oh, they make everything better, do they?" and then we wind up watching Jesse cover up a murder of an almost-rapist by a scared, pregnant woman1 obviously committed in self defense2 by sneaking a body out of a hotel room on a room service cart3, staging a car accident and betting on people buying that the victim died in a car accident and not from being hit with a blunt object4 and when his simpleton daughter-in-law5 points out that the coroner would surely realize that the murder actually occurred hours earlier, crosses his fingers and hopes that the car would maybe blow up and that wouldn't be an issue6. Because Charles Pratt is as cruel as he is incompetent.
This show isn't really All My Children, is it? It's some bizarre hour of programming featuring actors we know playing characters with the same names as characters we once knew and loved, acting out scripts that are no more than word association games.
1Why do the writers take the "children" part of All My Children so literally? Can we really not go a week without a new baby storyline?
2So obviously committed in self defense that Jesse ACTUALLY STATED IT WAS SELF DEFENSE and felt compelled to cover it up anyway
3 What kind of hotel sends room service up on a cart the size of a freaking gurney? That huge cart, and all I saw in
4And yet he took great pains to make sure that North's seatbelt was buckled
5 So pretty, but so, so dim. And yet, obviously smart enough to catch a few episodes of CSI and have basic knowledge of forensics and criminal investigations unlike, apparently, the Pine Valley chief of police.
6 What the everloving fuck?
