Law & Order; UK (VOD Hidden Gem) - BBC America
After the ups and downs of loosing the matriarch of the "Law & Order" franchise, I was exhausted and tried my best to stick it out with "L&O: SVU" and "L&OW:CI" - I've even taken a gander or two at "LOLA" (that's "Law & Order: LA" for the amatuers or the purists who refuse to accept the West Coast into the fray) but things just aren't the same without Lt. Van Buren (S. Epatha Merkeson - the only cop to make it through the entire series) or Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston) and his legal eagles. The original "Law & Order" was a comfy sweater and when there was a marathon, I'd probably not leave the house even though there were some episodes I knew verbatim (don't judge).
"LOLA" is still developing but here's what's weird: nice weather and cop/DA biz. Love the cast yet something is missing. It's just not the same. I need some gray overcast concrete and brownstones! Enter "Law & Order: UK"! You probably just did a "?" like I did when I discovered this show (what's with the no publicity) on BBC American On Demand. Instantly I was intrigued. What other city aside from NYC has gray overcast concrete and brownstones? London of course!
