Why won't nbc put Law & order & SVU back to back on Weds. It's STILL the best series they have. A faithful fan
NBC (ended 2010)
Will this be the season that Anita van Buren finally becomes Captain van Buren?
Will former D A Adam Schiff make a guest appearance? Perhaps as a witness in a case about the Holocaust-the reason he retired as D A.
Will we learn what happened to Mrs Curtis, has she died? Is Rey Curtis still working a desk job in Queens?
Will they ever mention Ben Stone again?
Maybe we will see another guest appearances by the wonderful attorneys Shambala Green and Danielle Melnick?
How about a 3rd appearance by comic Larry Miller as Michael Dobson now out on parole and married for a 3rd time, that is until his 3rd spouse is found dead.
when S. Epatha Merkerson's taskmaster gets diagnosed with cancer. You know it's serious when they go & hire her a doctor. Stage actress Dierdre O'Connell has been tapped to play Van Buren's oncologist"
"In the 1st episode, we put the torture clique from the Bush administration on trial for conspiracy," says exec producer Rene Balcer. "While as equal opportunity offenders, we take shots at the new administration for sweeping the issue under the carpet." The audacious indictment leads to a move to recall McCoy. Expect more controversy when the shooting death of an abortion doctor leads to a reexamination of Roe v. Wade, and a possible connection between medical marijuana and the outbreak of Mexican gang drug wars in NYCity is explored.
"We're going to get more deeply involved in how cases affect our people individually," says exec producer Rene Balcer. "Our characters will be driven into interesting and uncomfortable territory." In a rare personal full-season arc, Lt. Van Buren gets life-threatening news.
Also from tvbythenumbers.com (http://tvbythenumbers.com/2009/10/30/law-order-given-4-more-episodes-this-season/32148 ): "LAW & ORDER" may be getting a four-episode extension to its current season (from 16 episodes to 20). Why would NBC order additional episodes if it wasn't seriously thinking the show is doing A-OK on the rough Friday night time slot?
|Law & Order was a great show but now NBC and Dick Wolf's political agenda is killing it.|
You've already stated that you're not watching the show anymore, so why come here and complain about it? There are shows that I have stopped watching too, but I don't go to their forums and complain.
I'm a conservative and FDT specifically mentioned the first episode on his radio show, but I have not found any of the political stuff all that bad. not like Branch (my favorite character of all time on L&O) wasn't political in his comments, just like McCoy is now. Also, I thought they handled the abortion episode perfectly in arguing both sides.
The show is doing great on friday (got over 8 this past Friday for BOTH shows), and it's almost assured a 21st. NBC has NOTHING except L&O and SVU as far as dramas go. Plus, you kn ow they're going to move Leno back to the Tonight Show eventually (not this year, but in a year or two) and they'll put them back to back.
Bratt coming back is great, and I hope they let FDT make a guest appearance too. It's been discussed.
