I love this show. Dosen't everyone else? I have a question about it though.. The premire event, Season 1 and Season 5 is all out of DVD. What happened to Season 2, Season 3, and Season 4? Are they going to come out anytime soon? I have looked everywhere I could think of to find out ,but to no avail..so I was hoping someone on here might know.

Don't make me choose between Olivia and Elliot!! The thing with Elliot is he gets so emotionally involved in each case because of his own kids he has such a passion to see these sick offenders get what they deserve and as much as he is a ticking time bomb (one day he may just really hurt one of these guys) I admire him. Olivia is just wonderful people listen to her, she knows how to calm them down and get them to talk without always getting them all riled up like Elliot does. So I can't choose.

Do you watch Criminal Intent? It's the only Law and Order I can't really get into to. I love the new Trail by Jury I tend to fall asleep before they come on at 10:00 so I record them all and spend my free time on the weekends catching up :wink: but sometimes if I start watching SVU I cannot seem to shut it off and end up staying up to watch I guess its worth losing the sleep!

My favorite is Law and Order SVU but I love all of them. I agree CI is hard to get into, espically if you miss the first few mintues. But I enjoy it if I start it at the beginning.

My favorite on SVU...I cant choose I love them all. Oliva for her sympathy for the victims, Elliot for the way he gets so involved in the case cause of his kids, Munch for the wisecracks and knowledgable information, and Finn for his toughness, Captain Cragin for how he always keeps his people out of trouble, and whoever the ADA maybe (depending on season) for the way they find around the law(although they both are the ones that took me the longest to like).

I went to my sources to see if I could find anything about Seasons 2-4 and there is no news yet and my sources are pretty reliable.

Sorry.

I love SVU!!

Twinkle Toes, I was pretty mad too when we didn't get to hear the verdict - but that was a repeat show last night.....too bad.

I've stopped watching all of the other Law & Orders cuz there's just too much other stuff to watch on tv at the moment. The only Law & Order I hate with a passion is Criminal Intent cuz Goren is such a know-it-all!!! I can't stand his character!

I had never seen it when it previously aired. I was so angry tonights regular law and order is a re-run too! :(

Mango, I agree that there is a lot on when the other law and order's are on but I usually just record them and watch them when I can. I cant get into Criminal Intent the last time I actually went out of my way to watch it was a couple months back when Chris Noth guest stared for an episode I LOVE him!

Trail by Jury is real good too.

when last night's show first aired they asked people to give their verdict on their website...

This is like the 4 time that ep has been on  :roll:

So, what was the verdict? My mom watches this show and she asked me to see if I could find out anything because she was annoyed that didn't read the verdict.

She thought he was guilty.

'Wonder Woman' Goes Bad for 'Law & Order'

By Kate O'Hare

lynda0nw.jpg

LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) - After many years of playing heroines -- including the red-white-and-blue (and gold)-clad "Wonder Woman" on television in the 1970s -- Lynda Carter is tickled pink to be a villainous con artist on the Tuesday, Sept. 27, episode of NBC's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," and on the episode of NBC's "Law & Order" airing the next night, on Wednesday, Sept. 28.

"I've been working for so long," Carter says, "it's nice to be doing a role in which there are so many dimensions. She's got quite a character arc. That's always wonderful, instead of just playing that same old heroine that I always play -- save the day, save the day. I'm not saving the day."

The episodes focus on Lorraine Dillon (Carter) and April Troost (Estella Warren), a con team that manages to evade the clutches of Detectives Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) on "L&O: SVU" only to face prosecutors McCoy (Sam Waterston) and Borgia (Annie Parisse) on "L&O." Also guest-starring on "L&O: SVU" are Julian Sands and Mark McGrath.

"I am a grifter," Carter says, "a pretty shallow character. But where it comes to my daughter, I am -- or at least I think I am -- a great mother. I teach her all my tricks and how to earn a living without having to work. I think that's being a great mother, but I obviously screwed her up pretty badly.

"We get away the first time, but the second time, we get a little bit over our heads."

According to Carter, a friend mentioned her name to "L&O: SVU" executive producer Neal Baer. "Neal called me when I was just finishing up [the movie version of] 'The Dukes of Hazzard' and asked me if I would be interested in this part. He sent me the script, and I said I'd love to do it.

"As it turned out, Estella Warren is an old friend that I had met several years before when we were both in Scotland together, so it was really nice. Then right during all the time when 'Sky High' and 'Dukes of Hazzard' were coming out, they called me to say they wanted to do another one, on the regular 'Law & Order.' I thought that was fantastic. I love Sam Waterston, so I jumped at the chance."

Asked if Lorraine might return one day, Carter says, "It all depends on the ratings. You know never. It's possible. I'm not dead, so who knows? This character's got a lot of ways to go. She's a perfect narcissist and self-involved. Her worth was her beauty, and in this episode, she's learning that she's not all that anymore, but she still thinks she is."

From her perspective as TV's original "Wonder Woman," Carter ponders the question of who should play the DC Comics superhero in the upcoming Warner Bros. feature film, to be directed by Joss Whedon ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Serenity"), who's also penning the screenplay.

"I don't know that the people that are doing 'Wonder Woman' are too interested in my point of view," Carter says. "That's the way that goes. But I think unknown, not necessarily inexperienced, but unknown is the way to go, because it will make all the different in the world to try to discover her. That's the way the baton will be passed.

"Someone without a lot of fame baggage is important."

About the time her "L&O" episodes are airing, Carter will be in London, performing in a version of the musical "Chicago." Now that her children are teenagers, she's even considering a return to series television as a regular.

"It's a possibility," she says. "The thing about series television is, you need writers that are willing to keep you challenged, so they've got character arcs that are moving all the time. That's the key to being really happy in a series, is to be challenged."

In this regard, Carter heaps praise on a friend of hers, movie-turned-television mogul Jerry Bruckheimer (the "CSI" franchise, "Without a Trace," "Cold Case," "The Amazing Race," "Just Legal," etc.).

"The thing about Jerry," Carter says, "and the way I believe he gets underestimated, is that he is all about character development. He may have lots of flash and bang, but you love the characters. You love the characters; you go with them; you feel familiar with them; you care about them.

"It's sometimes overshadowed by the fact that there's so much else going on and so much flash, but he won't do anything if he doesn't feel the characters are strong."

Mariska's 'SVU' Pregnant Pause

Connie Nielsen

Mariska Hargitay's pregnant pause is Connie Nielsen's gain. The former "Gladiator" babe is set to step in for Hargitay on "Law & Order: SVU" when the latter goes on maternity in the coming months.

"Law & Order" mastermind Dick Wolf told the New York Post that Nielsen, 40, will play a warrant detective who joins the 'Special Victims Unit' when Hargitay's Detective Olivia Benson is sent off on "specific assignment."

"When we realized we weren't going to be able to get through the season without explaining [Hargitay's pregnancy] in some way, the best decision was to have her dispelled, and Connie's name surfaced internally," Wolf told the Post.

Mariska Hargitay

Nielsen will star in six episodes of the crime drama, the highest rated of the "Law & Order" franchise, leading up to the season finale.

Hargitay, 41, is expecting her first child with actor husband Peter Hermann this spring, though the exact due date is unknown. The couple met in 2002 on the set of the prime-time procedural when Hermann, 38, joined the show as recurring attorney Trevor Langen. The camera-ready couple tied the knot in August 2004.

Nielsen's temporary gig isn't the first time a ringer has been brought into a "Law & Order" series for an on-hiatus regular.

While Jesse L. Martin was filming 'Rent,' Michael Imperioli joined the cast

Last year, "Sopranos" mobster Michael Imperioli took over for Jesse L. Martin in the final episodes of the mothership's 15th season. Martin briefly bowed out of his detective duties for the big-screen adaptation of "Rent," in which he played Tom Collins, the same character he originated on Broadway in the early '90s.

Similarly, Chris Noth, who made his name as a detective on the original series, was hired last year for "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" to tag-team with star Vincent D'Onofrio, after the latter battled exhaustion.

The rest of the 'SVU' gang follows in Hargitay's break-taking shoes in April, when the show goes on summer hiatus. The entire crew, including the future mama, resumes filming in July.

I am a big fan of all the Law & Order shows.

I am especially a big fan of Criminal Intent. To me, Vincent D'Onofrio is sort of like a Colombo character, using psychology and playing dumb when needed to solve a case. Built into his character is also the weaknesses of having a difficult childhood and caring for a mentally-ill parent. I always appreciated the complexity of the characters in a series.

Law & Order: CI is my favorite too... and for the same reason, Vincent D'Onofrio. Love this character for the reasons you stated. I like Chris Noth too but, not as much as D'Onofrio. And, I still like the other L & O series but, if I miss them it's no biggie.
