Donk donk! Goodbye, ‘Law & Order’?
Wow. I’ve been watching it for at least 10 years. For all its faults — preachy leftism, formula/predictability (the cops are pushing somebody around but it’s only 10 minutes into the show so you know he’s not the culprit) and flouting of the law (see above on cops, and ‘righteous’ state attorneys like Jack McCoy trashing the Constitution to get people who personally offend them) — it was entertaining and educational (real law-school classes watch and discuss the episodes). That the ‘good guys’ are not all good and the culprit sometimes gets away with the crime were signs of its maturity: good writing and good acting.
