Law & Order Is Fiction
By Kickntrue on 11/30/10
On 'Law and Order' this week an angry club wielding wife goes after her pro-golfer husband in a rage. NBC would like to assure you it's "strictly fiction."
The "Law & Order" franchise is known for its ripped-from-the-headlines approach, but a series spokeswoman called the episode strictly fiction. "Law & Order: Los Angeles," with Skeet Ulrich, Corey Stoll and Terrence Howard, airs 10 p.m. EST Wednesday on NBC.See. Fiction.
It's crazy how much they can get away with in stealing a story. It makes sense to use real life events as fodder for a storyline- but you'd think you'd have to do more to disguise it. If you just had a crazy club wielding wife everyone would instantly think of Tiger already- but to have him be a philandering pro golfer... that's just mean. I can't imagine it will make NBC high on Tiger's "to-do" list. Couldn't you see him skipping an event or something being shown on NBC as an act of defiance? I wonder if creative for a show like 'Law & Order' has to run things by NBC Sports- or if they just go with it?
So, ya, I suppose you could watch that tomorrow night if you want. I'll be watching a much better show personally, one that NBC won't show for another 4 months, 'Friday Night Lights.' Almost worth the DirecTv in itself.

Friday Night Lights, i have heard some good reviews on it. I was looking for a new show to start watching on dvd... Just got up to date on Mad Men love that show. I wish i lived back then... So anyways sounds like i should check out Friday Night Lights huh?
@Banker85- I'd argue it's the best written show on TV. It's not necessarily as "fun" as some other shows- but it is very well done. Plus- it's in its last season now- so you know what your investment will be if you get hooked. 4 (or is it 5?) seasons. Not bad.
this must be meant to be, i went on to my netflix and they are recommending i get friday night lights. looks like i have no choice but to follow the signs.
Having just watched the episode, they mention Tiger Woods by name.
