True crime shows worth watching right now

Law Order finally joined the party that other true-crime series have been hosting for years.

Law Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders continues the franchise’s long tradition of ripping from the headlines. Except this time, it’s a detailed, blow-by-blow retelling of a crime almost 30 years old. And it stars Edie Falco as all-star defense attorney Leslie Abramson.

It’s more like “ripped from the case files.”

In 1989, brothers Lyle, 21, and Erik Menendez, 18, stand accused of murdering their parents. Most people think the motive is money; the brothers went on a spending spree in the weeks following the deaths of their parents. Lyle Menendez maintained in a recent interview that he had been abused by his father but says he regrets it.

This isn’t the first time this saga has made it onscreen. The TV movie Menendez: A Killing in Beverly Hills, starring Edward James Olmos and Beverly D’Angelo, was

Former Playboy model Pamela Anderson urges men to stop watching porn

Former Playboy model Pamela Anderson has called for men to stop watching pornography. The Baywatch star describes adult material as a “public hazard” and says it affects a man’s ability to be family-oriented.

In a joint opinion article with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach for The Wall Street Journal, Anderson, 49, addresses the recent sexting scandal surrounding former democratic congressman Anthony Weiner.

Anderson and Boteach claim that porn has a “corrosive effect on a man’s soul and on his ability to function as husband, and, by extension, as father”.

They add: “This is a public hazard of unprecedented seriousness given how freely available, anonymously accessible and easily disseminated pornography is nowadays… Understand that porn is for losers – a boring, wasteful and dead-end outlet for people too lazy to reap the ample rewards of healthy sexuality.”

She eventually positioned herself near a merchandise table that was offering t-shirts for 25 bucks and bobbleheads for not much less.

It was the midway point of IDCon, a sort of Comic Con for true crime TV buffs, and the woman’s pink shirt had the convention’s logo emblazoned across its center. This was a real fan, I thought. I’d been talking with a bunch of these people all afternoon, trying to understand why roughly 200 of them were compelled to set aside much of their Saturday listening to B-list television personalities talk about murderous entertainment.

I introduced myself, but just when I was about to turn on my voice
