I don’t often recommend TV shows, but Sin City Law is a worthy exception to the rule. Made by the same documentary team responsible for Murder on a Sunday Morning and the The Staircase, it offers a fly-on-the wall view of the legal system in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Tonight’s episode, Bourbon Strip, is part 2 of a trial of an elderly man accused of stabbing a friend to death in a drunken rage.
The access that the show’s producers have been given is incredible. The stories are as compelling as any Law & Order or CSI but with the added impact of knowing that what you’re watching actually happened.
It’s on tonight at 8:30 on ABC2.
