I watch a program called in session just about every day. It's court cases where the tv cameras are allowed inside the court and you get to watch the whole court proceedings. The courts in some states do not allow cameras to film the whole thing. I find the whole thing very interesting but out of curiosity yesterday I googled the case I've been watching for two weeks only to find out the case is about 4 years old! I'm sittingt here waiting for the jury to come in when the guy is already in jail! I'm sure this is only seen in the US but do you watch insession or court tv? Did you know in the beginning that the case was already done with? Now I'm wondering if I want to keep watching this program since it's already been decided on by the jury!! Am I naive or what?

Hey don't be so hard on yourself, you weren't to know, it was a simple easy mistake to make. My father watches court cases all the time, even though they are probably years old and the felon has probably served his time and got out and probably even watching himself when he was on trial sitting on his sofa munching biscuits LOL! I would still watch a case even if the sentence had been passed. Don't forget a lot of programs are filmed sometimes months before they are actually televised.

lol...I never thought of that! These people could be watching their trial over again after having served their time in prison.
