‘Law & Order’ is going downhill
It’s a formula. Two people, possibly arguing, find a dead body on the streets of New York. The detectives eventually find a suspect, Jack McCoy indicts everyone he can, and by the end of the hour there’s a guilty or not guilty verdict — or sometimes a plea bargain. Doink doink.

But in recent years TV’s most ubiquitous show — on since 1990 — has sagged.

I missed the show in its glory days but have said the same thing. Another sign: when the usual opening scene of the arguing New Yorkers finding the corpse was replaced with a mini-music video.
