Crossing Lines S01E03

by Kevin Jon Heller

Every week, for as long as the show survives, I’ll be blogging about Crossing Lines, the new NBC drama that features a team of detectives who work for the ICC. Today, my expert analysis of the second episode:

It’s about art thieves.

Really. It’s about art thieves.

I’m not kidding.

(And don’t get me started about how the team threatens to let a wounded man bleed to death if he doesn’t give them valuable information. Must have missed that provision in Art. 21(3) of the Rome Statute.)

Back again next week!

  1. and it begins with a fashion show. 

  2. I was just as disgusted by the JAG television show, Kevin, but I stopped watching after the first episode I saw, in which Harm escorted a Romanian princess being targeted by assassins.  JAGs are really cool, but not that cool.
    It’s a good thing to quit while you’re behind in this type of thing.  As I understand it, in the next JAG episode, Harm and a Colombian drug lord played a high-stakes game of “Go”, with the prize being a Marine that was left behind during a covert mission, as Webb and the JAG team once again butted heads. Had I watched that one, I might have lost my lunch.


  3. I just love how they walk in and say “we’re from the ICC”…
    BTW, it’s Episode 3 in fact. The first week was a “double bill” with 2 episodes.

  4. PS: on the bleeding to death part, I’m wondering if this would actually fall within the abuse of process doctrine at the ICC, given the very narrow definition given in the statute…
