To move would it was that the top rated show last night do we know yet. We don't know yet to I think I reach I would guess no because American Idol box. That is so. Like you know I mean I think this is one of those things I think it is one of those things that you know Coke. Sean Parker was a good idea so we are is a good idea. It come aboard the idea back irrigate or write this book I get a and that's what the fifth best that this series of victories is based on. You know OJ Simpson read a book. You know hypothetically. You know I'm not saying how he would have done it if he was guilty. I mean the whole thing it's Corey dear and near when he watched there's. Interview I did think red it just gives you chills to get the disk it feels like. You know Gigi talked about how hypothetically could it have an accomplice named Charlie. And the hoping that sort of like it it just sounds like he's talking about himself. We have a mission Albert Gardner it's either somebody who's guilty who's running his mouth in a way that makes you wanna throw up because it's so sickening if you killed somebody that she would keep this up. Crass or. Someone who's mentally ill are so desperate for money that they would do something that's so damaging to themselves amid I felt like I was he'd. I was either watching a crazy killer or someone who is almost in prostitute it on television it was bizarre. We get him yeah I mean whether he whether he's guilty or not. But of this crime distracted you really created you do actually you know represented a real lack of Georgia right know just give Paul. Barbara let's talk about it and let's talk about what we've got coming up this week I don't wanna lose that are on the talk about some. Some good shows what is it what does this show for the people. For the people are actually the latest shared a lot of chopper ride through production company should on the lab and it took it very. You know kind of what a lot of people are calling a great anatomy of a quarter. It takes place in the mother court which is sort of the federal court in the southern district of New York the Reid right called the mother record is good so many of its case this sort of determine. The federal law precedent. And you know it did show that the cast of characters in the show. Are you know three federal. Prosecutors and treaty. Public defenders and they should square off in this court in the a lot of the chase is the very top goal and you know it it'll it'll seem very familiar to people who are fans of of the shop garage formula. You know there's very similar character archetypes one of the borders. We'll remind you very much of Cristina Yang from. Grey's Anatomy Turkey that are there's some great vision great character actors in the show as well. Okay this thing I have ever heard her public defender's office. And sent them glued to the well I'll give his opportunity listening is that are the core us of built in audience I would suspect.

Anyone who likes Friday Night Lights are like parried they like the sort of rhythm of the this sort of emotional drama of Boucher knows what like this show. Dramatically it's very different about a high school drama club. And in that tent that kind of like a dramatic glee but it also. Very much Jason Kidd and Cheryl I think that you'll really had majority. You know. Believe.
