    This year’s Israeli TV documentary series, Defense Files, is better than drama and better than reality TV — it provides a fascinating and realistic glimpse into the world of the criminal justice system and a look at the challenges facing Israeli society today. It also helps the viewer to understand the world of the public defender’s office — where the uniquely motivated lawyers are trying to help people who come from diverse backgrounds, some of whom have been wrongfully accused and others have made serious mistakes.
