NBC's Law & Order
Aired Oct. 23rd

Dr. Walter Benning is shot in the head while attending church. Benning was a late term abortionist doctor with comes with many enemies. Many pro-life advocates threatened Dr. Benning and Wayne Grogan being one of these advocates. Grogan admits to killing Benning and justifies his actions by explaining he did it because Benning kills babies. Despite tearful and distracting testimonies, on whether getting or not getting an abortion is right, the jury found Grogan guilty of murder.


Both episodes we're extremely entertaining and I hate to have to pick the best of the two. However; I feel the best episode this week was Law & Order. This episode really brought to reality how the difference of opinions can really determine how you act and feel towards others.
The plot entailed twist: Rubirosa went against orders and told the other team why a nurse quit working at Benning's clinic. Unexpected events happened to characters: Rubirosa at the conclusion of the episode might end up quiting. A sense of suspense: Why exactly did the nurse quit? Horrible to find out Benning was really a murder when he killed a live baby he accidentally delivered.

Week 5 (Oct. 11th-17th)


Good Cop, Bad Cop

Ben-Gidon, Ziva’s former team leader showed up and demanded Ziva’s return to Mossad and in exchange he would tell director Vance what happened on the ship. Ben-Gidon said that Ziva killed Cryer because he gave up their cover, however; NCIS team proves that Ben-Gidon was the real shooter. Also, throughout the episode Ziva attempts to get a permanent position on the team and at the conclusion of the show is accepted as a NCIS agent.

Reality Bites

Aired Oct. 16th

After picking up his 10 physically disabled children from school, Larry Johnson finds his wife’s dead body on the floor in their house. Larry and his wife Joy were deciding on whether or not they wanted to do a reality show. Larry in debt wanted to do the show but Joy did not and neither did a rivalry family who also wanted to do the show. Larry, the cheating husband, decided to do the show after his wife passed making him look rather suspicious. Larry was charged with murdering his but the jury declared a mistrial.


All of the episodes this week were quite entertaining but the most entertaining for me was NCIS because:

· The plot entailed twist: One of the team members, Ziva, looked rather guilty for most of the episode mostly because of her lie about why the boat sank.

· Unexpected events happened to characters: While nothing physically happened it seemed as if Ziva might not get a permanent position on the team meaning no longer on the show.

· A sense of suspense: This lasted throughout the show with the question being did Ziva kill a marine.
