    I love Law and Order! They’ll be back for one more season.

    It’s odd that you claim so much knowledge of and disdain for a show you admit to never having watched! Law & Order has had some of the most original and inventive plot twists I’ve ever encountered — not to mention an impressive stable of powerhouse actors. Perhaps you should familiarize yourself with it sometime. You’ll be pleasantly surprised!

    Law and Order is NOT formulaic – it focuses not primarily on the solving of the crime, but also on bringing the perpetrator to justice. You can learn a lot (on the whole accurate) about the rules of evidence, and on the tactics of plea-bargaining. I for one will miss Law and Order badly (the spin-offs, I admit, are just normal crime dramas, so I do not understand why the original is being cancelled rather than them!)
