Frequently Bought Together
All 23 episodes from the first season of the LA crime series, in which a single case is chronicled from its opening trial arguments to the final judgment over the course of the entire season. Theodore ('Teddy') Hoffman (Daniel Benzali) is a highly-regarded defense attorney in a prestigious Los Angeles law firm. Having successfully defended the wealthy but suspicious Richard Cross (Stanley Tucci) in a much-publicised murder trial, he is now involved in the defense of Neil Avedon (Jason Gedrick), a famous young actor who has been suffering from severe drug and alcohol problems - and has been charged with the murder for which Cross was acquitted.

What, if anything, has this to do with "Murder One"?
Only this. The DVD rental store will have to find another second coming, (is that a third coming, or a fourth?) Well, Murder One, is the best and I MEAN the very best, Who Done It, come Court Room Drama, EVER. For those of you who are like minded, the word addictive may come to mind. Try going to bed before you've watched at least four chapters,(you wont be able to). What about a quick couple of chapters, before going off to work? You will NOT be able to say NO.
Do NOT be surprised if you are thinking about Murder One, when you are on the train/bus, or driving in the car. Its amazing. You get to know the characters like in no other movie youve seen. You will find yourself trying to figure out, did so and so do it, or could it be the other guy, he may have just fitted it in a murder?
If you don't get this DVD set, I'm talking about the Boxed Set of six DVDs, (Series One) some 22 chapters, I think it is you will regret it BIG time.
You will NOT work out "who dun it", by the way. You will try and you wont be able to stop thinking about it.
The only thing I suggest you do not think about, is whether to buy this set or not. Buy it, and do it now. Amazon have the best price ever for it just now and it is worth every penny. (Trust me)
The format was unlike anything I had come across before, a single high-profile murder trial extending through the series, told from the point of view of the defense lawyer and with all the legal details – evidence hearings, jury selection procedures, and so on – all set out. Now you know why real life major trials in the US seem to take so long, and it was a fascinating insight into the process. The episodes are fattened out with subsidiary story lines about other cases and the characters’ private lives, and are never boring. As for plot twists, well, stay seated or you might get vertigo.
The whole cast is first rate, and it is good to see some who went on to other things (not so good to wonder what happened to some of the other excellent actors who seem to have disappeared since). The laurels must however go to the two characters whose struggle dominates the series, Daniel Benzali as gravel voiced magisterial defense attorney Ted Hoffman (a sort of good-guy version of his somewhat sleazy Attorney Sinclair character from “NYPD Blue”) and Stanley Tucci as the eerily-calm saturnine evil (or is he?) genius behind so much of what is going on.
Watched when younger and for years tried to remember the name of this programme which i enjoyed even at a fairly young age. When it was released on DVD i was put off by the price tag, but thought screw it il get it anyway! So worth the money, having recommended it too many friends everyone agrees its like a book, u find yourself watching 3/4/5 episodes at a time desperate to find out what happens!!
Teddy Hoffman the lead character is awesome, truly awesome and the rest of the cast is excellent. The plot lines are all thick and juicy and the twists and turns at each corner keeps you guessing right until the very end, and believe me when it does end theres an empty feeling & a need to fill the void in your life (So you go and buy season two, only to find no Teddy!!!!)
The only downfall, season 2's lack of teddy hoffman and the lack of seasons 3/4/5!!!! One word for murder one season one; UNBELIEVABLE!!!
Well Murder One was the one for me - not everyone watched it but anyone who did was 'in'. It brought strangers into the same conversation, and divided offices. It was the 24 or the Lost of its day and is long overdue a reappraisal and place in TV history.
When this first aired in the UK, US TV was having a bad press in the UK with only ThirtySomething hinting at what was to come (Law and Order, The Shield, and of course Diagnosis Murder ;-)
It was what we now know as a slow burner but anyone who missed the first few episodes was left out forever. I think it must have been the first TV programme since Quatermass in the 1950s that people talked about at work the next day to try and figure out what was going on. So tense was it that when the BBC in their wisdom delayed teh final episode for sports coverage there was a massive backlash. If I remember correctly, there was some sort of climb down or apology, but it took them by surprise.
If you loved 24 you'll love this. And if you didn't like 24 you'll still love this as it has a lot of characters and character development, isn't as claustrophobic as 24, and is genuinely thrilling.
The lead actor was a true find, but sadly didn't return in the second series which, though still extremely good and worth watching, could never have hoped to live up to the first series.
Apart from anything else, Murder One showed that, contrary to popular opinion, people will stick with a complex series - yet still studios and networks fail to learn the lesson and cancel programmes before they get into their stride.
