    Law and Order: Trial by Jury - good?

    Law & Order : Trial by Jury is now being syndicated and I have the chance to start from the beginning. Is it worth it, who knows about this spin-off of L&O? I need to figure out if its worth investing time in, although it I am optimistic because it seems to be more my speed compared to the original L&O.

    Fans or Critics!

    IMHO, no it's not worth "investing" your precious time on this earth in L&O -- CSI, whatever. My advise... read a book, play a game with friends, pick up an instrument, cook a new dish, write a thank you note, take the dog on a longer walk.... do almost anything else with your time.

    I've heard it's nearly as good as "CSI: Kenosha"
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    AHAHHAHA, love it.

    well, I take it no fans in here. I guess I'll have to see for myself what its all about.

    I heard there is a" L&O: DMV ", in the works. Think L&O meets "the office".

    Are you serious??? If so, I think the American public is ready for "Stan & Stan:Lawn Nazis Unleashed"

    The success of the Law & Order and CSI franchises on tv reminds of when Time-Life came out with it's WWII book series. The early books in the series deal with big themes 'The Eastern Front', 'Battle for the Pacific' and the like. The series became the biggest seller they'd had in years. In order to keep the sales success rolling they kept dealing with narrower and narrower themes as the series progressed (like skirmishes in the Aleutians, or whatever) I was half expecting the final book in the series to be "Generals With Moustaches Compared to Generals Without"
