Who Would Defend Me If I Was On Trial For Murder In A TV Show?

Something terribly wrong happened in the TV show I’ve been trapped in: I have been wrongfully accused of murder!  Which characters from what TV series are going to take my defense so I’m found innocent of the crime I’ve been framed  for.

Like I mentioned, this is only about characters from TV series, so movie lawyers like To Kill a Mockingbird‘s Atticus Finch are not being considered.

Also this Kafkaesque nightmare is anchored in reality so Harvey Birdman, Attorney At Law and superhero Matt “Daredevil” Murdock are also out of the picture.

Finally, please understand that in this improbable scenario, I am the one being accused so attorneys working for the prosecution like Law & Order‘s Jack McCoy or law enforcement agents like Fox Mulder and Dana Scully cannot be working for me to prove my innocence.

The Legal Team

These are the attorneys that will try to convince the jury of my innocence. They are my first and last line of defense thus being the ones in charge of managing what the investigators, consultants, and experts will be working on.

Perry Mason

No one on television as a knowledge of the Law as extensive as Perry Mason. He is the one defense attorney that has defended dozens of falsely accused people, and has managed to clear each and every one of them.

Veronica Mars

There aren’t many big shot New York criminal lawyers who have spent most of their teenage-hood solving crimes and even less who had their private investigator license before graduating high school.

The Investigative Team

As law enforcement agencies believe in my guilt, these amazing detective will be in charge of seeking not only a proof of my innocence but also the real guilty party.

Jessica Fletcher

The Murder She Wrote author is one of the imaginative minds when it comes to proving the innocence of the wrongly accused. She’s also a personal friend of Magnum PI which can come in handy.

Shawn Spencer & Burton Guster

The only fake psychic on television who has obtained a perfect score on the detective exam test and thus at the age of 15; with his trusted pharmaceutical representative friend they form a formidable duo.

Angus MacGyver

The operator for the Phoenix Foundation has an extraordinary knack for unconventional problem solving and an extensive bank of scientific knowledge which are essential assets to any investigative team.

The Outside Consultants

In the event that my investigators encounter any roadblock due to technology access or face harm due to deceitful eyewitnesses, these highly-skilled consultants will manage these issues.

Elliot Alderson

In a world where digital data can be the most important piece of information to prove the innocence or guilt, Mr. Robot himself, is a hacker that needs to be on my side.

The A-Team

I pity the fool who would try to intimidate eyewitnesses capable of proving my innocence or my own investigative team; they bad guys are going to need a plan B because I have the A-Team.

The Expert Witnesses

In order to prove my innocence, these brilliant geniuses, with unrivaled knowledge in their particular field, will undoubtedly challenge and crush any fallacious testimony from the prosecution’s specialists.

Dr. Hannibal Lecter

This is a matter of taste: none is as brilliant as a profiler as the forensic psychiatrist with an appetite for understanding the darkness of the human mind.

Dr. Temperance Brennan

If anyone can explain how a murder happened, it would be the anthropologist, forensic anthropologist, and kinesiologist nicknamed Bones.

Dr. Gregory House

The renown diagnostician is nothing short than Sherlock Holmes with a stethoscope; his in-depth knowledge of medicine makes him key to eviscerate flawed autopsies.
