“For the first time in 20 years, a Law & Order detective will fall. And how it all ends, is a Law & Order first.”

 

 

 

This bugs me. I’m a huge fan of the Law & Order franchise – the original, SVU, Criminal Intent, Even Trial by Jury and the Law & Order that wasn’t, technically, Law & OrderConviction.

 

This is not the first time. Get your facts straight. Max Greevey from the original Law & Order was gunned down in the line of duty. Don’t try to tug at the heartstrings for a show nobody cares that much about and detectives we haven’t really established a connection with. NBC cancelled the original one year shy of it beating Gunsmoke‘s record for the longest running TV drama, disappointing loyal fans. Then in the wake of that, they proudly tout the new LA version and expect everybody to jump on board. Nah – ain’t happening.

 

The show goes on hiatus, then gets retooled by killing off one detective, losing one prosecutor, changing an existing A.D.A. into a cop and adding on a prosecutor from the remnants of the original show. After a couple of months you over-promote the hell out of the return and expect people to get excited.


Well, maybe. Alfred Molina as a cop and the familiar face of Alana De la Garza as the transplanted D.A. Humpf – we’ll see.
