I have never seen Murder One Season 1 so I have to own up to the fact that the only reason I bought the second season was to catch up with another of Anthony LaPaglia's screen roles. I believe that the series was dropped because viewing figures fell off sharply towards the end of the run. I think that this may have been in part due to a rather long-winded and fairly boring third story within the season about an unpleasant defendant who admits to being a killer from the outset (no spoilers here please note). The interviews with the actors at the end of the boxed set is pointed in not including any comments from Mr LaPaglia himself, though he is referred to on a great number of occasions. One wonders if the making of this series was not a totally happy experience for him. As a viewer Season 2 is eminently watchable for the first half dozen episodes not only to watch Mr LaPaglia creating a charismatic character in front of your eyes, but also the story line is interesting and has some depth. Certainly if the other two story lines had been as good as this one I suspect the makers and the actors involved would have been picking up awards rather than being dropped at the end of the series. Any LaPaglia fans will love it of course, but as a crime series it does rather peter out. However it's great to iron to!!!
