I couldn't find a similar thread...
Now, as many people know, the Law and Order franchise is sort of on its last legs here in America. Criminal Intent ended this summer, Law and Order Los Angeles got cancelled after its first season, and, of course, the original L&O ended last year after twenty years. Conviction and Trial By Jury were both failures. Now the only Law and Order in America is Special Victims Unit, which happens to be my favorite, followed by Criminal Intent. Elsewhere, Britain, France, and Russia have their own shows, and I believe that a new one is being produced, set in Cape Town, South Africa.
In any case, I believe that a franchise of this size deserves its own appreciation and discussion thread. With over 900 hours of televised programming, and spanning 21 years, there is no question it had a significant impact on television.
So, what is/was your favorite show, and who is your favorite character?
My favorite character by far is Stabler, and I already said SVU is my favorite.
Also, for fans of Law and Order UK, how good is it? I have never watched but I might consider trying it out.
