Law & Order “Memo from the Dark Side” Episode Information

NBC has released the episode information for the season premiere of Law & Order, “Memo from the Dark Side.” The episode will air on Friday, September 25 at 8:00 PM. Note that they still have Sam Waterston listed as District Attorney, so it looks like he won the election – not as if we expected anything else!

Law & Order “Memo from the Dark Side” Air Date September 25, 2009

WHEN A WAR VETERAN IS FOUND DEAD IN A PARKING GARAGE, ALL SIGNS LEAD TO A LAW PROFESSOR WHOSE PAST WORK AS A LAWYER FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE UNVEIL TORTURE DURING WARTIME.

When young war veteran Greg Tanner is found murdered in a Hudson University parking garage, Detectives Cyrus Lupo (Jeremy Sisto) and Kevin Bernard (Anthony Anderson) connect the murder to law professor Kevin Franklin (Guest Star David Alan Basche), an attorney who formerly worked for the Department of Justice. But when the case is brought to court, it seems Tanner (Guest Star Creighton James) may have been more affected by the war than his discharge stated. Lupo and Bernard find that the pieces start to fit when Franklin’s memos from the Bush Administration are leaked. Also starring: S. Epatha Merkerson (Lieutenant Anita Van Buren), Sam Waterston (District Attorney Jack McCoy), Alana De La Garza (Connie Rubirosa), and Linus Roache (Michael Cutter).

"Memo from the Dark Side" Kudos ! Should be required viewing for every adult on the planet with much orderly discourse afterward. Program had words for feelings I had but didn't know a way to express. Thank you, NBC.

It listed Rene Balcer and Keith Eisner as writers, I didn't see a specific listing for a teleplay. I hope this helps!

I thought the writing for "Memo from the Dark Side" was some of the strongest I've seen in ages on Law & Order. Congratulations to NBC on an excellent show that raised big questions about why the malfeasances of the last administration are being politely ignored.

Pendant la guerre d'Algérie, les militaires et les décideurs politiques français ont été confrontés à la même problématique : la torture est elle légitime lorsqu'il s'agit de défendre une démocratie contre des combattants idéologiquement totalitaire? Ce formidable épisode de Law & Order discute le sujet de manière remarquable, et prend position. Au-delà de la question morale, notez le témoignage de l'officier US, qui rajoute : et en plus ce n'est pas efficace pour lutter contre le terrorisme.
