Theodore Hoffman: Zero. But I think she's wrong. And if I'm right about him, Lester's records are filled with references to your violent nature.
Chris Docknovich: Including a back-dated memo describing how you confessed to murdering Jessica.
Neil Avedon: This is my shrink we're talking about?
Theodore Hoffman: We're talking about a thoroughly corrupt bastard who's selling you down the river.

Best U.S. series ever?
24 August 2005 | by michael-1432See all my reviews

Saw Murder One (Series One) on DVD and was blown away -- by the acting, the plot, the consistency & the overall quality. Could this be the best American drama series ever screened on TV? It has to be a contender. Currently watching Series Two (with Anthony LaPaglia) and think that so far it's also a great show. I like LaPaglia and have nothing against him but it shows a total lack of backbone from the producers that they saw fit to replace Daniel Benzali who was just terrific.

I just wish they'd made another series or two -- it is so much more believable than 24 for which, I believe, it paved the way.

Come on Mr Bochco, it's not too late to bring the show back to life...
