Murder One: Season 1 Review

Review the whole case of this intelligent US law series


Before there was 24 there was One. The former show’s gimmick of following just one case over an entire season was celebrated as groundbreaking, but Murder One was there seven years earlier.
Without 24’s ‘real time’ trick, it instead credited its audience with the intelligence to follow the twists and turns of a murder case being defended by hush-toned lawyer Theodore Hoffman (the brilliant but now AWOL Daniel Benzali). Typically, such faith in audience patience went unrewarded and the series flopped Stateside, but is eminently worthy of a retrial.
