Amen. The creepiest part was the post-trial Weiss/Box team-up to get the Real Bad Guy. It’s framed to almost suggest that we’re supposed to… what, be rooting for them? They’re scum. Very weird. I think that was an American innovation over the British original — I don’t think they trusted their audience to deal with the prospect that the Real Bad Guy might get away. Which, again, entirely misses the point of what the show was trying, however ham-fistedly and tortuously, to be about. They could have addressed their Brady problem with a single line of dialogue between Box and Weiss. The writers are obviously talented, but it’s the complete lack of interest in the actual workings of the system they’re portraying — their willful ignorance of the subject matter they’re pretending to explore — that makes the show so hard to watch.
