A new city, new detectives, new cases as the 'Law and Order' action moves to 'The City of Angels'. It's good to Skeet Ulrich, a recogniseable face, in a leading role, ditto with Alfred Molina, both of whom did excellent work in this premiere episode.
The case for the detectives involves a string of burglaries which are being perpetrated on the homes of the rich and famous when their houses are empty. Unfortunately, during one attack, the girlfriend of an up and coming Hollywood star is badly beaten and, in another, the burglar in question is shot dead by the mother of a fresh young starlet who has recently gained the reputation of being somewhat difficult to deal with.
Further investigation brings to light the interesting fact that the young starlet is in some way connected to at least four of the eight reported incidents but the plot thickens even more when it's found that her mother is far more involved than was first thought.
An interesting plot for the first episode and well acted. I am looking forward to seeing where this one goes as I have been a fan of the L and O franchise for a long time.
