Like a fine wine L&O just gets better with age. Last nights season premier was terrific. The guy who played the killer was one of the creepiest villians in recent memory.


What I like best about the show is that it always makes you think and doesn't always end with a predictable verdict (The Practice).


IMO this is still the best drama on network tv. I know others will disagree but other than NYPD Blue no show has been as good, as consistent as L&O.


The HD transfer looked great. Much better than the West Wing. My only complaint is I have to wait till half way through the show befeore Elisabeth Rohm appears. What a HOTTIE!

I agree that the show makes you think. I'm still debating with myself on whether the public defender did the right thing. I think he did. Heck of a way to be a martyr, though. I also agree about the bad guy -- seriously bent. I think L&O has the best guest/extra casting of any show in the business. PQ was pretty good as well.


Gotta disagree about Elisabeth Rohm. Liked her better on Angel. I still miss Angie Harmon...

Although I grudgingly accept Elisabeth Rohm now, I still think that Angie Harmon's portrayal of Abbie Carmichael was the best A.D.A. the show has ever had. I wish Angie would at least come back for a guest appearance like Carey Lowell and Richard Brooks have done. Here's hoping...


It's good to have Law & Order back for another season--this was one of the best episodes they've had in a while, and was it my imagination or did the HD transfer look better than last season's? No matter... it's nice to see that the original series still has the moves!

I guess it was just me then. This season opener was a real turn of character for the DAs. Always in the past, the DA was firmly on the side of moral and right. And I thought so last this episode as well until the last few seconds when they just let the young PD go to prison and ended the episode. This was the first episode that I REALLY disagreed with the position of the DA on what was right and just.


Oh well, it makes you think and the HD was wonderful.

For those who suggest that Law & Order is getting long in the tooth, I suggest that they look at the overnight ratings for this season's debut episode. Not only did L&O easily win its timeslot Wednesday night, it had its biggest season opener in its entire fourteen year history--over 21 million viewers. Incredible.

Older is better. At least that's what I'll tell anyone within ear shot.

On the other hand, here's hoping that Jill Hennessy doesn't come back as the same character...that would be creepy. ;)

d*mn! my favorite show! sorry I missed the premier. Just got back from Europe on business, and the jet lag meant I could barely stay awake 'til the end of The West Wing.


I'm amazed L&O is still as good as it is considering how long it's been on, and how many changes in the cast they've had.


For the recond, I kinda miss Jill Hennessy and (long-gone) Michael Moriarty (although one can't complain too much about Sam Waterson).

I too miss Jill Hennessy and (to a lesser extent) Michael Moriarty and Angie Harmon.


But... Get real, folks! What P.D. in his right mind would keep sticking to his confidentiality promise and go to jail voluntarily after the guilty-as-they-come defendant had confessed to two murders (not connected to the hidden corpses at issue) and been sentenced to death? I was rooting for this P.D. to be sent to jail just because he was such an ass.


I'm surprised some of you bleeding hearts aren't telling us the scary guy was obviously crazy and should've been consigned to a mental-health facility for a few years, after which he could be declared "not too much of a threat" and released to relieve the pervasive overcrowding.


The show got it right by commenting at the end that all those mandatory appeals after a death sentence are not such a great idea.
