I used to be a big Law and Order junkie; back when it was good. Like the days when the cast consisted of Michael Moriarty, George Dzundza, Paul Sorvino etc.
What's interesting is that I finally think the show has one of the best casts it's had in a long time with Anthony Anderson and Jeremy Sisto as more gritty New York detectives.
Unfortunately, the writing on the show has become way too political and predictable. I'm always kidding Mrs. Gekko that a typical show will have the detectives finding a video tape of of a suspect shooting a victim. Is he the guilty party? No. Under today's Law and Order writing, it's the head of the pharmaceutical company who sells an anti depressant which turned a perfectly normal teenager (because don't all well adjusted teenagers need anti depressants?) into a sadistic killer.
This past Monday's episode was so typical when it ended with the head of a biotech company who was looking to steal blood from a family for a cancer drug. Who's the head writer for this damn show today, Keith Olberman?
So now it's getting canceled after twenty years. I guess Sam Waterson better keep that TD Ameritrade gig.
