In the criminal justice system the people are represented by two separate but equally important groups…
I am an original Law & Order fanatic, and I miss Jerry Orbach and his one liners. I can’t even believe I have watched this show for almost twenty years and have spent whole Sundays and holidays watching marathons.
There are now four Law & Orders on NBC, L&O: L.A. being the most recently added (still on the fence about whether I will give this one much attention) and as of now I only watch SVU. I think Olivia Benson is the most awesome chick on television.
Now BBCAmerica has brought us Law and Order: UK. My Englishman told me a while back they were doing the remake for the UK so I have been anticipating this since last year and even put the series in my Netflix queue.
I was bugged eyed when I caught the tail end of a show Saturday and immediately pulled up the already aired episodes on Demand. Now I can delete from Netflix!
So far the scripts are from the original L&O and because I have seen many episodes countless times I knew the first two episodes too well, so there wasn’t much excitement in the outcome. However, I can’t say it was a wash because I did really enjoy the new cast, especially Ronnie Brooks, who reminded me of Lennie Briscoe.
Dick Wolf must be the richest producer in the world!
