Who was it that decided Dr Conrad Murray’s trial for the manslaughter of Michael Jackson would make compelling television? Does he/she/they know anything at all about how these things work in real life? Court proceedings are terminal bores, even for those who are unfortunate enough to be part of the action.
Unlike films and television, there is very little excitement. We don’t have the surprise factor, where either the prosecution or defense attorney pulls a fast one on his opposite number. There is no drama, just layers and layers of detail repeated ad nauseum. Where is Petrocelli when you need him?
Guilty, your honour. Take them down.
