Another thing I can’t make myself care about

Q. Apparently, a lot of (really, really old? I assume?) people are having hissy fits because of the cancellation of NBC’s 20-year series, Law & Order.

A. I think S. Epatha Merkerson’s departure is a sign that this ship is positively sunk, people.

I mean, the show lost its heart when Jerry Orbach went to that great big stage in the sky.

    I was just kind of shocked that they didn’t go for the record 21st season!

    Word is that Dick Wolf (Awesomest name ever!?) is in talks with TNT to bring L&O over there… since they already perpetually re-air the older episodes.

    Not to mention NBC did pick up: LAW & ORDER: LOS ANGELES for next season.

      Eh, it was the show’s time.
      But I won’t be watching L&O:LA, because I don’t wanna.

      I believe Dick Armey is the awesomest name ever.

        I don’t know. It’s no Ruby Nipple-Cook.

    I’m kind of a Criminal Intent fan myself… I love D’onofrio’s character (Det. Robert Goren)… I’d love to see him team up with House and Adrian Monk… the USA network version of “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen”.

    • lokifire said,

      But they’re all so quirky! I think that show would drive me nuts.

    I caught an OLD episode of Law & Order the other morning on TNT… by old I mean pre-Jerry Orbach… but the kicker is J.O. was IN the episode as a creepy DEFENSE ATTORNEY! Say whaaaa –!?

    • lokifire said,

      What? You didn’t know that? It’s totally a fact in the Law & Order Episode Guide/Trivia Book, which I no longer own.

    I guess I’m kind of new to the Law & Order game… I have noticed that many actors have guest starred on all 3 versions of L&O.

    • lokifire said,

      Yeah, like the awesome coroner lady. I love her.
      Also, I guess J.K. Simmons was back on last night’s episode, which now I wish I’d seen, because he is the awesome.
