This season we begin with a continued feeling of the DA's office under Jack McCoy as having a weak ability to accomplish its goals as Prosecution on behalf of the "People." I'm not sure if a series prolonged over 19 seasons can continue to pump out or generate original material that doesn't undermine its once glory years.
