| Johnnie Cochran and PA Lottery Fix: Anything To Win
| Monday, January 30, 2006
GSN recently sent Buzzer the Johnnie Cochran and Pennsylvania Lottery Fix episodes of Anything To Win, their new documentary series. We'll look at the Lottery episode next week. This week, let's focus on Johnnie Cochran.
If you are one of the chronic complainers (AKA one of the hundreds of people that email me every week) saying "Where are the game shows?", first off you're blind and second off, you need to watch this show. If it wasn't for Russian Roulette (which we also still get weekly emails of when it's coming back), Anything To Win would easily be the best show The Network For Games has ever put on. The Johnnie Cochran edition of Anything To Win excells in the speed of the episode and the content delivered. More than a biography of his entire life, it goes into his history of being one of the most famous lawyers in history. One area they go especially indepth with is his fight to free Geronimo Pratt.
I wish we could show you some of the compelling funeral footage given, but we can't. The raw emotion of the episode is enough to watch it. Even if you aren't a fan of the O.J. Simpson verdict, you can't help but feel compelled by how much effort Cochran put into his work. The episode features exclusive interviews with Geronimo Pratt and goes indepth with how Cochran set Pratt free after being in prision decades for a wrongful conviction. Some TV critics have panned the show, saying that people like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Johnnie Cochran doing anything to win is a bit of a stretch. However, they pushed THEMSELVES to win, and Chcoran's episode shows this in graphic detail. Anything To Win: Johnnie Cochran will appear on January 31, 2005, at 9PM ET/PT.
Edit: I'm a moron and mistyped his first name. It's fixed.
