    With all the talk of Enterprise, it seems everyone is neglecting Law & Order with new ADA. (And supposed shocking ending!) Well, everyone except me, I guess. [​IMG]

    I have not forgotten. Just 3 1/2 more hours. Patience.

    I watched it. That dog was scarry. Bite your head off... literally.
    There was a surprise ending? I must have missed it, seemed like typical L&O to me.

    I can not really explain why, but to me the season's premier was a bit of a disappointment. It seemed to be the same old stuff, except now killer dogs have been introduced. I hope the writers are not running out of story lines as I have always enjoyed this show.
    I am not sure what is meant about the "shocking ending". Is this not how every Law & Order show has ended?

    I nodded off during the final 10 minutes of the show. Could someone please tell me how it ended. Maybe add some spoiler screens for the sake of those who don't want to see it. Thanks.

    ChristopherS: This episode was loosely based on a real event that happened in San Francisco not too long ago. Because of "America's New War" the story (like the Gary Condit story, Anne Heche, and the "Summer of the Shark") has dropped off our news radar.

    Melencio Paras, Jr., read below:
    Spoiler:A women was mauled and killed in a public park by a dog trained to be extremely aggresive and dangerous. The police eventually track the ownership of the dog to a lawyer and CPA. The trial centered around the fact that the couple did not know the dog was dangerous and were therefore not responsible for the park women's death. Eventually, the lawyer gets on the stand in her defense and explains how nice the dog was. In the prosecution's examination, he brought the dog into the court room. The defendants were both freaked out. Why they were freaked out was left to the jury. I guess this was supposed to be the "surprising ending". It was pretty shocking, but a fitting ending.
    Now for the new ADA, I wasn't impressed. My wife and I only recently started watching L&O (on A&E) and this was pretty much our first new episode, so I don't know very much background. I think it will be a while before she grows into her part. I don't know why, but her phone conversations (there were several) just seemed fake to me.
    I'm looking forward to my first new season of L&O though (along with Enterprise [​IMG]).

    Liked the 'Law' part, disappointed in the 'Order.'
    The new ADA didn't make a good impression with me. Up against McCoy, she seemed like she was in over her head acting-wise. I still haven't been able to handle Wiest as the big cheese, or her crazy asian-influenced wardrobe. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool fan so I'll keep watching no matter what.

    I wish they would lose a little more often. That would be a shocking ending.

    Ken, I think you are correct about it not being the first episode. I had heard that they had a five part show coming up with the other 2 L&O shows, but it was about terrorists, so maybe they canned it.

    True; the miniseries has been cancelled. Whether or not it will be revisited sometime in the future in unknown. A shame, because it sounded like a killer concept, and I would've loved to have seen all the different cast members interacting.
    About the new episode: it was pretty good...standard run-of-the-mill L&O. And about the new ADA: she has only been on for one episode. Cut her some slack! [​IMG]
    Regarding the "shocking ending": every promo for L&O says whatever upcoming episode will have a "shocking," "chilling," "haunting" or "unforgettable" ending...this is just standard practice for the producers. [​IMG]

    I thought it was a pretty good episode. The "surprise ending" was somewhat shocking, but when you look at McCoy's tactics in the past, it isn't that shocking. [​IMG]
    I'm reserving judgement on the new ADA, but she seems more like the girl next door type than a fierce ADA.
    Law & Order has come a long way since the days of Irish cops running the show. I like the diversity now, but I think McCoy is a bit overrun by women in the DA office. I think either the DA or the police chief should be a man. Adam constantly feuded with the cops. The new DA seems to have a lot less to do than he did. Maybe I just miss his "Who the hell is running the police" lines.

    I don't get what was so shocking about the ending... Seriously. Can someone explain it to me? Thanks!

    Gotcha. Thanks. I agree that the new DA seems too "blonde." Bring back Carey Lowell! =)

    Adrian_N, Thanks for the recap. I'll make sure to catch it on the reruns.
    Anyone have any thoughts on the latest L&O spinoff, Criminal Intent?
