    I think SVU is the best. But the original is not bad to.

    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.


    I agree with all except the fact that Ice-T is "awesome", I don't like him.

    It's a tough choice for me. I like both, but Goren on CI has really grown on me in the past season.

    I like SVU because of the depth and personal touch Mariska puts into Det. Benson, and CI because of the outlandish and mysterious behavior given from Det. Goren by Vincent D'Onofrio. It also seems that CI has been getting the better cases as of late...

    the original is always the best. I think that in SUV and Criminal Intent they basically show the police and almost never any prosecution. the original has equal amounts of both

    I must say I enjoy the orig. Law & Order, then the SVU.
    I like C & I, except sometimes Bobbie works your last
    good nerve. Let's be honest here, no officer goes through
    or that nosey without a search warrant. There would
    definitely be a big liability for the police dept.
    But I do enjoy how he plays the psych card.

    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


    I completely agree with you. I absolutely love SVU, I watch it everyday (yay USA for playing it!). I occasionally watch CI if I can't find anything else on, and I only watched one episode of Trial by Jury (wasn't fond of it) and the only reason I did was because it was a continuation of an SVU episode...

    The first Law and Order, I only like when Jerry Orbach's character, Briscoe, is in it. The ones before him and the one's after him, just aren't as good, even with him the original lacks something for me. Maybe it's the characters? I dunno, but something about SVU makes it my favorite!

    I loved what Detective Eames said on one of the shows when Detective Goren was being put under a microscope by some big wig who wanted to teach him a lesson and also get away with a crime. She was on the stand being questioned about whether or not she had asked for a transfer because she was finding it difficult to work with Goren. She said that she had asked for a transfer but that she had canceled the request because "Detective Goren is an acquired taste". I loved that line almost better than anything that has been said on the program, and I'm an avid CI fan. In my opinion, Vincent D. is also an acquired taste. I personally find his acting style fascinating, but I can understand why some people might find him annoying.

    My favourite law and order was the original one for the first few series but I really don't like Sam Waterston's character now, so my current fave is criminal intent.

    As for which A.D.A was the best, I can't decide whether my favourite was Carey Lowell who played Jamie Ross, or Richard Brooks who played Paul Robinette in the first 3 series. Both were good.
