Law and Order: SVU Season 14 Review “Monster’s Legacy” – Death Row Blues

It’s rare to get a happy ending in Law and Order: SVU these days, but in this week’s episode, “Monster’s Legacy,” good actually won for once and a man who was only mostly guilty got a second chance at life after the justice system tried to murder him.

This episode has already taken a lot of flack in the press because the death row inmate was played by Mike Tyson. Yes, a convicted rapist was hired to play a rape victim, and on the surface I find that a little strange, but the man made a mistake and paid his debt to society…isn’t that what our justice system is for? Maybe in taking on this role he wasn’t just trying to earn a few bucks or get his name in the papers. Maybe he was trying (in some strange celebrity way) to make amends.
