Irresponsible Journalism: The L.A. Chronicle ran a story about a death before a body was found. Submitted by H. Mason 11/13/14

FINALLY: This show ended the way most of the shows in the series should have finished. The epilogue (or last act) provided information about the other characters guilty of crimes. Too many of the previous episodes ignored the other people after the murdered was revealed. In those stories we were introduced to people and parts of their lives then left in limbo after the killer was caught. Submitted by H. Mason 11/13/14
+ I don't know whether the credit should go to the writer, director, or actors themselves, but we see the various malefactors squirming convincingly in their chairs during the hearing as these bad deeds are revealed. Well done. JohnK 13 October 2015
++ the unISness of it all one of the resolutions is that Durrant (Irwin) is to be charged with fraud, but is he really guilty of that ?? It's true that he participated in a deception, but did it rise - descend?? - to the acutal level of fraud: after all, as Perry pointed out, people purchased genuine paintings...the deception affects whether/not they will rise in value. But speculative losses usually aren't recoverable (would someone be quilty, for example, if they falsely announced they intend to retire...and then didn't). An interesting question on the fine points of the Law, for modern day Perrys - or Davids - to weight in on. Pondered by Notcom, 013018.

A very interesting point - and as there was no suggestion of insurance fraud or an attempt by Culross to evade debtors or in any way cheat his wife, I'm not sure abetting him in faking his death would be a chargeable offense. No doubt, though, Durrant's career in the art world is over. DOD 10/20/18

Any PM episode set in the art world is somewhat embarrassing - the supposed masterpieces are always so obviously, well, crappy. Other than that, this is a better than average show, neatly plotted with none of those ludicrous improbabilities that spoil many other shows. The reveal is fun and, on a personal note, I find Jason Evers one very sexy man. DOD 10/20/18

Noir? During two scenes with James Griffith, the director went for truly bizarre camera angles. First, when Paul is questioning him outside the door of his room. The CUs of Paul are at a dramatic downward angle, while those of Griffith are at a serious upward angle, making it appear he is looking over Paul. Later, in the courtroom, same thing. Burger is shown in a most unusual downward angle, while the camera points up at Griffin again. This is a classic technique for making a character look seriously threatening...but inappropriate in both cases. A peculiar aesthetic detail! Submitted by JazzBaby, 03/04/2019
