I don’t think I hate Law & Order: LA

So, the last couple of weeks, I’ve watched the revamped Law & Order: LA. Sure, I’ve been slightly drunk at the time (because why wouldn’t I be?), but I don’t think it’s all that bad. I never saw the unvamped version of it, so I can’t really say if it’s an improvement or not.

I don't think this is part of the current title sequence, but I was drunk a bit, like I said.

And I would never say that it’s better than old-school Law & Order back in its glory days, because that’s just silly. Nothing is better than old-school Law & Order in its glory days.

Because Jerry Orbach, that's why.

It’s just too bad they had to kill off Skeet Ulrich, I guess, but I can’t really say that I’ve ever been a big fan of the guy, so it could’ve been worse. It could’ve been Alfred Molina.

I mean, jeez! He's played Doc Ock! And that guy that was in that one Indiana Jones movie for a couple of minutes!

Also, I always thought Molina was Greek, but they’ve got him playing a Latino? I mean, I get that in Hollywood and in television, you don’t actually have to be a race to play a character of that race, but maybe he is Latino? I guess I don’t care enough to find out.

(But if someone else cares, they can totally tell me in the comments, that’s cool.)

And the cases are interesting enough, like last night, they killed a Marine, and you thought it was her boyfriend, but then it turned out to be a bunch of corrupt government officials, so that’s good. (Even though I’m getting the impression they’re planning to really rely on Alfred Molina to carry this show, what with the way they have featured him heavily in all three episodes I’ve seen, and seem to be planning to do so for next week’s episode too.)

Also, does anybody else find Corey Stoll really, really hot?

I mean, now that he's shaved that ridiculous moustache?


Yeah. Like that.

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.

Good night, sweet dancer

Plus, you had "that cute boy in your physics class that you were too shy to talk to" good looks, and seemed like a generally nice fellow, Patrick Swayze.

Patrick Swayze, I didn’t really like any of your movies, and I especially didn’t like Dirty Dancing (despite the presence of the spectacular Jerry Orbach, whom I love whole-heartedly), because if there’s one thing we know about Lokifire, it’s that she doesn’t consider a romance a romance unless there’s a considerable amount of gunplay or martial arts on display in it as well, but I never disliked you (and I’m sorry for switching between first- and third-person so much there, but let’s just assume it’s the grief talking, OK?). And some of your movies did have bar-room brawls, so you’d think I would like them, but I just couldn’t get past their general crumminess. I’m sorry, Patrick Swayze.

But you were awesome, sir, as awesome as any actor who rose to stardom in the 1980s could hope to be.

So, I am sorry to hear of your death and just wanted to mention that.

Because I assume they have my blog in heaven.
