(Today)   Among the important lessons learned from the Law and Order franchise is that there's always one crusty old cop at the scene who will make a relevant quip about the murder victim, and that things just aren't the same when he's not there   (theclicker.today.com) divider line 25

Lenny was the best damn thing Law & Order ever had, period.

Marishka has to remind us she's a rape baby every week, like we could forget.

Marishkas eternally on the edge partner needs to finally just snap and kill someone or something.

The writers of Law & Order have done more to damage how the public perceive mentally ill people than anything I can think of. Every farking week they have some poor bi-polar bastard going nuts and killing half the neighborhood. And this shiat does not happen in real life. Screw you, Law & Order writers, screw you right up the a.

Actually he did.

End of season 12, Stabler kills a young girl (in self defense). When season 13 started, he was gone, and the latino guy from Cold Case was there.

Other lessons from L&O:

* At some point in every trial, one attorney will accuse the other of shouting "fire" in a crowded theater.

* Judges base their decisions on whether they make all parties involved unhappy.

* If your suspect looks a lot like a celebrity, they did it. Sometimes it will take you a while in the case to figure it out, and they'll keep popping up in the damnedest of places, but it'll come to you. Oh, and if you look like Kevin Arnold's sister in "The Wonder Years," you will get away with some ridiculous shiat.

I cant watch that show any more, my wife cant stop watching it. The sheer stupidity of all involved makes me want to get all stabby until I have to leave the room. Its like a history drama piece about the most inept and unstable disaster of a precinct in the world that employes a group of psychopaths with 4th grade educations.

LETS FEEL OUR WAY THROUGH THE CASE with our emotions!!

Have her watch a season 1 episode some time, with George Dzundza and Noth as the cops. Very quick, dry dialogue, and the actors portray each character as if they secretly hate each other. It's a totally different show.

We both watched the earlier seasons together long ago. Eventually the show started making me more and more irritated as the years went by and the show got derpier. Now I cant pass the TV without screaming at the show about one stupid scene or the other. She gets mad and reminds me of the crap I watch. Its ugly.

70's B-Grade Horror movies arent bad, they, they are art.

I love those old shows. It's one of the last reminders that at one point, everyone was scared shiatless of New York City. It's almost like the city was another character.

Those episodes are great, simply because of the technology and Dzundza's attitude. One of the first season episodes has to do with a floppy disk with financial records being stolen and doctored by some crazy techie.

I also love when Lenny was biatching about everyone having cell phones, then him getting a cell phone and biatching about it.

After Lennie was gone, the original Law and Order did go through some rough times.

But by the final couple of seasons, the show was the best it had been since Briscoe was there.

No way in hell should NBC have canceled the show for a bunch of shiatty shows that didn't make it past a season.

Dennis Farina and Fred Thompson on the same show is like five Ted McGinleys.

But it jumped back!

McCoy as DA was great, because now he had to be the hypocrite and ride herd on a new Magnificent Bastard who was trying to pull the same shiat McCoy would always try and pull.

I liked Linus Roache as his successor, for sure.

Anthony Anderson was good, Jeremy Sisto was okay.

I wish Jesse Martin would have stuck around as the lead detective.

Farina was stuck kind of like Colin Quinn post Norm. He could never, ever be as good or iconic as his predecessor and he had to try and be different enough to distinguish himself.

Alana de la Garza was both ridiculously hot and good on the show. Big bonus.

That final season was also quite un-Law and Order-like, since it had the whole "Lieutenant battling cancer" storyline.

I thought it was interesting, and wonder if they would have continued down that road if the series continued.

/Wonder if they did that because they knew she was leaving after that season?

Any episode with Chris Noth was eminently watchable, whether it was with Orbach, Dzundza, or Sorvino. He was such a stereotype, but quite a cute one.

How'd you feel about his run on Criminal Intent?

He was best when partnered with Meg Wheeler (Julianne Nicholson). Those two were hysterical together.

I am so ridiculously attracted to her...

Did you mean "irreverent", subby?

I'm often torn about correcting this kind of stuff. On the one hand, it sounds Grammar Nazi and jerky. On the other hand, I'd honestly like to save people the embarrassment of saying stupid incorrect crap in front of people whose opinion might matter like their bosses, or an entire room full of researchers, or something.
