Tonight's Law and Order rips from the Jon & Kate/Octomom headlines

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 16th 2009 3:28PM
Law and Order has been taking real-life cases for their show for years. Sometimes they take them so much that it wanders into "lazy writing" category and not "inspired by" category. But tonight's episode, "Reality Bites," could be interesting.

There's a murder (duh) but it involves Larry & Joy, who have a ton of kids and are part of a reality TV show. And there's a twist involving another woman who has a lot of kids. Hmmmm...

The last exchange was a beaut. "You're kidding, right?"

Looks like its Jon&Kate, with a bit of that killing in FL of those people who had adopted all those handicapped kids.

I always chuckle at "ripped with the headlines" in the promos, then the Disclaimer that "the characters are not meant to represent anyone real" in each episode

I'll be watching this more for the fact that it has Jim Gaffigan than anything. Sometimes too much of the show is taken from reality but sometimes they just toss in little bits which isn't near as bad. I knew in the SVU episode on Tuesday the second that the lady who got killed was an abortion doctor they were going to bring up Dr. Tiller's death in Kansas earlier this year. I was probably just expecting it because I live in that town and the topic is still in the news all the time but it was still nice to not have the episode be more or less a re-enactment of that.
