30 years of Law & Order: Part I

In 13 years, Law & Order will have been on the air for 30 years. Here at The Loop And The Lou, we find that accomplishment blogworthy.

Wikipedia provides an excellent history of the show. If you're a fan of the show or you're interested in a career in Law and/or Order, it's worth checking out.

As informative as Wikipedia is, it does lack a certain attitude or boldness to it. It's like, "Here's all this unbiased, objective info. Feel free to draw your own conclusions". I don't know how they like it in Wikipedia, but in America we like our info in the form of product comparisons or subliminal government propoganda. And if you can't turn a conversation into some kind of Top 10 list, then it probably isn't worth conversing about in the first place.

So in this 47 part series, we're going to turn all that info into something every American can use - Coovo and my opinions on the best Law & Order characters. That's right. We'll take each unique paring of Detectives, Captain, ADA's and DA over the show's 17 years, tell you what we think, which scenes Tim and I like to mime in our "Law & Order: Mime Division" street shows (hint: Coov mimes an awesome Ben Stone), and in the end we might even come up with some kind of Law & Order Dream Team.

Peace out,

p.s. We won't be reviewing Law & Order S.U.V. or any of the other spinoffs.

Awesome! YOu could also put down who of your friends would play each character. Barnett is dead on for hard-hitting Jack McCoy...

Dude, that's a pretty solid idea. Geno is Ben Stone. Austin is Schiff. Harris is Robinet. And Curtis.
