Picks and Pans Review: You Be the Judge
NBC (Sun., Aug. 16, 7 p.m. ET)
If you're on a high school debate team, learning that wonderful skill of arguing either side of an issue, this one-hour special from the producers of Unsolved Mysteries is must-see TV. Short films take the pros and the cons on three questions: "Should you keep a gun in your home?"; "Have claims of sexual harassment gone too far?" and "Should the police engage in high-speed chases?" (a nice excuse for car-crash clips). After one side blitzes you with startling statistics and phony-looking dramatizations, host Jerry Orbach of Law & Order introduces an opposing presentation that he says is also "powerful" and "compelling." He should conclude with coin flips.
Bottom Line: Hard to decide, but we vote no
