    Nope. No need to.

    ETA-It would be sheer torture to listen to Nurmi drone on for 4 hours. Aaaaaaand.

    I voted maybe.. I may be drawn to it like a train wreck (basically the DT CIC has been a train wreck I have watched so I voted maybe) I will for sure read along and zap people who are name calling

    I might watch the beginning of Nurmi's closing argument. The first time he brings up sex, I'm turning the channel. So I doubt if I watch over a few minutes.

    I will watch because the Alexander family will be there. My little act of support for them. I really have no great desire to listen to any of it, but I will be watching

    Yeah only because I feel like I have to see whole picture .. if I sleep in a bit and miss the beginning though, so be it.
    Neither the state nor the defense team are saints, and there is usually plenty of incompetence to go around on both sides of the courtroom.

    Ditto!

    There needs to be one more option - Who is going to watch, but deny that they are?

    I do not want to because Nurmi is not going to make it easy.. But I want the whole picture when it goes to the jury.

    I expect rambling and nonsense.

    Yes, I will not miss it

    I just like to hear every word uttered in that courtroom

    I haven't been able to decide who drives me the craziest ... Nurmi or Wilmott ... cause they both make me want to grab the pliers and start yanking my teeth out . In spite of that though, ain't no way I'm missing the defense's closing argument. I can't imagine how, or what they can say to counter JM's brilliant articulation today.

    I'm already cringing though knowing full well poor Travis and his reputation will be once again, unfairly & heartlessly raked over the coals and shredded. The only consolation is that hopefully ... it will be the last and final time.

    The only thing I would listen to from those lawyers would be if they advised her to do one decent thing in her life and plead guilty to all charges - and throw herself on the mercy of the court. Anything less than that is going to be lies and hypocrisy.

    As much as it will pain me to watch, I have to. I want to see what the jury is being fed and how the DT are going to recover from Juans closing.
