    Right now SVU is my favorite.

    The original was great before last season. I don't like the cop or the new ADA.

    I really liked Trial by Jury and was very disappointed with NBC for cancelling that show.

    I hated CI because I dislike the lead so much. I am watching every other week with Chris Noth and I am enjoying half the season.

    I like SVU the best. I also like Law and Order but not as much as I did with Jerry Orbach in it. I would like CI, but every time I watch it, I fall asleep. Don't get me wrong I like the actors, but I find that Donofrio's voice is lulling.

    SVU too, I really hate it when I forget to set the recorder for it. It's not possible for me to watch it as late at night as it's aired and go to work in the morning.

    SVU is the best, then Trial By Jury, then the original, then I just hate Criminal Intent.

    For those of you who are upset (including me) with the cancellation of TBJ; NBC is sort of making up for it. No... it wont return. But Dick Wolf is making a new law drama that focuses on young assistant district attorneys (both professional and personal lives). Its scheduled to air during midseason (I think it will most likely air Fridays at 10). And the show is titled "Conviction."

    Here is a CNN article on Dick Wolf, his Law & Order franchise and his upcoming new series, http://www.cnn.com/2005/SHOWBIZ/TV/10/26/apontv.dickwolf.ap/index.html.

    Law & Order SVU is the best. It's the only one I can watch and get into because the actors and the writing is great. Criminal Intent is alright. I can't stand the original L&O, but I'm glad it was made because it started SVU.

    Well, I'm partial to Law & Order just because I am a die-hard Jerry Orbach fan. But lately, I've been loving the plot lines on SVU, so currently, it is my favorite of the various series.

    Evertime that I have watch L&O: CI, I've never liked it. I dont like any of the characters, especially Vincent D. I just dont think the series is nearly as good as any of the other Law & Order shows, even Trial By Jury. Also, Criminal Intent seems to be the most like Law & Order between fans and it gets the lowest ratings. But I just dont like the show.

    I dunno I like SVU and CI.

    I like SVU coz of the explosive nature of Elliott Stabler and how you know that if you were in his position you would want to do the same. He's a character I can relate to.

    I like CI coz of Robert Goren's unpredictability. He's a mysterious man who lets you in only enough to grab your interest but never any more.

    My favorite is law and Order SVU. Criminal Intent is too creepy for me, the guy is weired. Law and Order is a great series, and it is amazing how they have been able to spin off one from the other.

    SVU is my favourite Law and Order, followed by the Original. I couldn't watch Trial By Jury or Criminal Intent-just hated them.

    I LOVE them all, but Criminal Intent is probably the most ambitious--meaning the plots are the most complex and Vincent D'Onofrio's character is the most mesmerizing.

    That is a hard decision, my first law & order love was the original or 'mothership' as it is so lovingly called by hard-core fans like myself. But my favorite I would have to say is criminal intent.
