Conviction: (S01E09) “A Different Kind of Death”

Review:  This episode Hayes teams up with the DA…or rather he teams up with her. He chooses a case for her about a death row inmate that was convicted of murdering a colleague of his. Hayes is against the death penalty but is also against being told what to do by the DA. She caves…

Conviction: (S01E08) “Bad Deals”

Review:  This one is only one day late. 😛 A girl escapes from the basement of the man who held her (and did things to her) there for 10 years. Apparently, he died of a heart attack. (I hope it was painful.) The downside to this escape? One of the members of the team was…

Conviction: (S01E07) “A Simple Man”

Review:  I apologize for the tardiness of this review also.  So this episode is about the injustices faced by people who fall in a limbo area on the IQ scale and whether or not they should be incarcerated or placed in an alternative facility.  Hayes is ambushed by the DA and a film crew who…

Conviction: (S01E06) “Stay Woke”

Review:  First, I apologize for the tardiness of this review. It’s been a long few weeks and this show has been low on my radar, especially since this is the only season we’re only going to see.  This episode tackled the Black Lives Matter movement, while only mentioning the phrase once. It started with yet…

Conviction: (S01E05) “The 1 Percent Solution”

Review:  So after Hayes decided to spout on about her privilege in the last episode she decided she needed a case that would help prove her little rant correct. She went after the case that had a “have against a have not” angle.  The person found guilty of murdering a wealthy white woman was a poor…

Conviction: (S01E04) “Mother’s Little Burden”

Review:  I’ve waited this long to write this review because I waited forever to watch this episode. I just kept looking at it on my DVR and not finding the urge to watch it. This should speak volumes as to how I feel about this show. I think they’re trying for something edgy but falling…

Conviction: (S01E03) “Dropping Bombs”

Review:  The episode starts out with a hit to Hayes’ ego when the DA mentions to a reporter that she’s a new Hayes…a less edgy version. I immediately knew this episode would be all about her proving that she still is edgy and unpredictable.  She immediately went to her office and found the case with…

Conviction: (S01E02) “Blood and Tunnel Vision”

Review:  I’m not sure if I just really want Hayley Atwell to be Agent Carter again or if this show really is just trying too hard to be edgy. The more I learn about Morrison the more I do feel badly for her. She’s had a great deal to put up with but at the…

Conviction: (S01E01) “Pilot”

Review: I’m completely underwhelmed by this pilot. I saw the trailer for this show and I of course I wanted to see it; Hayley Atwell is the lead! Not only that, the trailer made the show seem smart and fast paced. The trailer is a lying liar who lies.  The episode starts with Hayes Morrison…

Conviction: (S01E01) “Pilot”

Review The attorney general Conner Wallace announces the Conviction Integrity Unit to investigate claims of innocence of inmates. He says his job isn’t about convictions, it is about justice. If they are wrong, they need to correct it even if it leads to embarrassment. He has figured out someone to lead this unit and it…
