  • I watched the first two or three episodes of The Jury, and then gave up. In order to maintain the dramatic tension of television, the stories were set up so that by the time the jury needs to make a decision, it's a toss up whether the guy did it or not.

    That's reasonable doubt, to me. Which means the verdicts should have come back "not guilty", which means there's no more dramatic tension.

    I'm hoping they get it tweaked, at which point I may go back to it.

      I saw two like that, and on the first one I saw, they said he was not guilty for that very reason. On the second one, "Last Rites," they found him guilty because the circumstantial evidence was so strong. I see no reason to think every episode will be like that, but then again, I ain't no TV writer. ;-)
