    dont get me wrong I like them all, but after a while it gets old they 99% of the time get convictions(which isn't real life)and that's usually because they ever so easily get someone to confess and turn state...and sometimes the defense really should win not because I watch movies to root for the badguy but because they put on really good cases

    I totally agree with Jemadari, except for the liking them all. I found that with all Law & Orders except, Trial By Jury. In one incomplete season, the plaintiffs lost at least a couple of trials.

    My favs in order of preference:
    L&O: CI
    L&O: SVU
    L&O:
    L&O: TbJ

    I don't know why, but I like Vincent D'Onofrio the best of all the lead character. From what I've read though, alot of people find him really annoying

    I have to say SVU is my favorite. I guess I would say it's the best but not everyone thinks that. I never really got into CI or TBJ, but I did like The original. Although, after Jerry Orbach died it sorda lost it's spunk. I love SVU because I think the cast has a special chemistry that the other ones didn't have. I watch it pretty much religiously(that's in a figurative expression). Also not to sound rude but SVU has the highest ratings of all the shows in the franchise even when they were ALL in their prime. Well I think SVU is the best.....Danielle

    'Who was your favorite assistant DA on the original?
    I liked Angie Harmon, and the women before her with short brown hair.'

    Me too. The one with short brown hair was Jaime Ross (can't recall the actress' name).

    Oh, the original question: CI is my favourite; I do like Robert Goren. But like others, I'm happy to watch any version (well, I would be if we got Trial By Jury over here in Britain).

    Tricky question there.

    If we went with the current season, I'd have to say LAW AND ORDER: SVU with Stabler and Benson....

    But. Overall, LAW AND ORDER (original) is king, especially the Jack/Abbie years.

    Hopefully they get a better ADA soon...

    I like SVU the best. I've watched so many of the original ones that I can figure out who the killer is in the first 10 minutes. I like SVU b/c there is minimal "Law"/legal stuff, so the full hour is dedicated to developing the crime plot line. Much trickier to figure out. And the cast is great, Ice-T is awesome.


    I agree with you, nicely put by the way.

    IMO SVU is the best, but I also like the original

    I read in it a magazine a few months ago. If I recall right SVU got the highest rating, followed by L&O , and CI was last.

    I cant comment of TBJ because i never watched it except when it did that cross over show with SVU

    SVU by a mile. The character development of the cast is so good, they feel like real people in the middle of all the storylines. The original is still a very solid show. I've never been able to get into Criminal Intent. It sort of just leaves me cold.

    I would have said the original was best 5 years ago--it's still quality tv, but it's gone a little flat. I can't put my finger on it, in my opinion, it's in a bit of a rut. At present, SVU holds my interest more.

    I like the original the best old school. In fact with the reappearance of Chris Noth, might help there rateings of Law & Order C.I. I still miss Lenny but the show must go on. Last week with the gang reference was good. Just curious are they ever going back to that story considering how it ending with the Assistant ADA.
