    "Law and Order" original series on DVD (1990 - 2010) discussion thread

    Recently watched L&O Original Series S12 (2001-2002 season). Excellent season, as always. Some of the many highlights: -"Possession": A woman is found murdered outside of her rent-controlled apartment; as it turned out, she had been a long-time tenant. The investigation turns up many elements...

    "Law and Order" original series on DVD (1990 - 2010) discussion thread

    All of the S11 episodes were excellent. Here are some of the many high-lights: "Endurance": A disabled child is killed in a apartment fire. At first glance, this appears to be an accident. But, as Briscoe & Green investigate - they realize that the fire was deliberately set. Extremely sad...

    "Law and Order" original series on DVD (1990 - 2010) discussion thread

    I recently finished S11 of L&O. As always, incredible season. And, while some episodes were better than others - I felt they were all solid & well-done. Interesting that Dianne Wiest is the new Interim D.A. Norma Lewin, replacing Adam Schiff (Steven Hill). Coincidentally, both Wiest and...

    "Law and Order" original series on DVD (1990 - 2010) discussion thread

    After starting S09, soon after I watched Exiled: A Law and Order movie (1998). This is a stand-alone TV film that chronologically takes place early in S09, and features detective Mike Logan. He is now "demoted" and working in Staten Island, after punching out a politician at the end of S05...

    "Law and Order" original series on DVD (1990 - 2010) discussion thread

    Finished S08 of L&O & have started on S09. As always, excellent season. Some of the many highlights: "Thrill" - Briscoe & Curtis investigate the murder of a delivery driver, and look for a motive. Soon after, they realize that there was no motive, and that this was a random "thrill" killing...

    "Law and Order" original series on DVD (1990 - 2010) discussion thread

    Recently finished S07. Excellent, as always. In this season, ADA Jamie Ross (Carey Lowell) replaces Claire as Jack McCoy's second chair. Good actress, and her no-nonsense approach is refreshing. She typically doesn't allow emotion to get in the way of her job - for the most part. As I've...

    "Law and Order" original series on DVD (1990 - 2010) discussion thread

    I just saw this article about the original L&O that I thought fans of the series may find interesting: https://www.eonline.com/news/1186206/dramatic-exits-a-marathon-run-and-that-sound-explained-30-surprising-secrets-about-law-order I did not know that the show was on the verge of being...

    "Law and Order" original series on DVD (1990 - 2010) discussion thread

    Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, that's what it looked like to me but I was being optimistic - especially since I haven't started S07 yet. I've gone back & modified my post. I definitely agree that Savior was extremely unsettling/disturbing.

    "Law and Order" original series on DVD (1990 - 2010) discussion thread

    Part 2 of my S06 review: "Custody": Paul Robinette returns (without his signature flat-top) as a defense attorney here. He defends a young women who kidnapped her young baby from it's adoptive parents. Superb episode, and you really saw a side of Robinette that hadn't been seen when he was a...

    "Law and Order" original series on DVD (1990 - 2010) discussion thread

    Recently finished watching L&O S06. Another extremely strong season - superb! It was refreshing & realistic to depict Briscoe & Rey Curtis, his new partner (Ben Bratt) as having a somewhat rough initial partnership. This is something that can (and does) happen IRL when people unfamiliar to...

    "Law and Order" original series on DVD (1990 - 2010) discussion thread

    Thanks for all of the posts/replies! I'm glad that the original L&O series still has a lot of fans, especially considering the extreme popularity of the various spin-offs. However, I will always attest the this original series is by far the best, hands-down. I finally finished watching S05 &...

    "Law and Order" original series on DVD (1990 - 2010) discussion thread

    Recently finished watching S05 of L&O. IMHO this is the best season in the series, so far that is (though I know I say that with each successive season - LOL). If anything, the show gets better as time goes on - and that's saying a lot, since it started off extremely strong in S01. As I've...

    "Law and Order" original series on DVD (1990 - 2010) discussion thread

    Recently finished watching S04 of L&O. I'm exclusively watching it on the DVD sets, and strongly feel that this is the best way to watch the show. Overall the DVD's have solid PQ, and I also like the inclusion of the deleted scenes; most of these don't really add much to the episodes, but...

    "Law and Order" original series on DVD (1990 - 2010) discussion thread

    Thanks for the correction/clarification. It's been a while since I saw S01 of L&O & had honestly forgotten that Dzunda was Logan's original partner in S01. I guess he didn't make much of an impression on me.

    "Law and Order" original series on DVD (1990 - 2010) discussion thread

    Couldn't find a dedicated & comprehensive thread discussing all seasons of the original & iconic Law & Order series, so wanted to create one. I never saw the show on TV, but did catch a handful of episodes on the early DVD's - back in the 200X's. However, recently I decided I wanted to watch...
