It was therefore with much joy that I heard about a new series on TNT with a familiar-sounding name called, Murder in the First. It was promoted as following a single case throughout the season. Hmm, it began to sound even more familiar. And then came the topper -- it's created by...Stephen Bochco.
O joy! O huzzah! Yes, I know it's not officially Murder One. The main characters will be different, and I'm sure there will be other differences in tone and style. But I also have every confidence that -- almost 20 years later -- Murder One is essential back.
And it starts tonight on TNT at 10 PM, Los Angeles time. (It would be nice if at some point Daniel Benzali appears as a guest star -- either in his old Teddy Hoffman role, or any role. I don't expect it, but still...)
Anyway, all good things come to those who wait. And wait and wait.
Keep in mind, too, that I'm a Cubs fan...
