Product Description

Product Description

The jury is in! From creator Dick Wolf comes the most innovative Law & Order series yet: Law & Order: Trial by Jury - The Complete Series. Partner up with Jerry Orbach, Fred Dalton Thompson and Bebe Neuwirth to explore the judicial system like never before: not only from the point of view of police and prosecutors, but also the defense team, judges, jurors and the defendants themselves. This highly collectible three-disc DVD set contains all 13 original episodes of the entire series, including one never broadcast on network TV! Plus witness exciting deleted scenes, a landmark Law & Order: SVU cross-over episode starring Chris Meloni and Emmy winner Mariska Hargitay, the philosophy behind this unique show presented by the cast members, and powerful guest-star performances from Lorraine Bracco, Peter Coyote and Candice Bergen. You have the right to Law & Order: Trial by Jury!


There are plenty of things about Law & Order: Trial by Jury, the fourth series and third spinoff (after SVU and Criminal Intent) in executive producer Dick Wolf's popular and reliable franchise, that loyal viewers will find familiar, even comforting. There's the taut, ripped-from-the-headlines storytelling; the Kobe Bryant rape case (in "Pattern of Conduct") and the infamous Amadou Diallo shooting (in "Forty-One Shots") are but two examples among the fourteen episodes in this three-disc set. There are appearances, some of them recurring, by Sam Waterston, Fred Thompson, the late Jerry Orbach (in his final episodes as Det. Lennie Briscoe), and other stalwarts from the original series. There's an SVU "cross-over" episode, and another ("Skeleton") that follows up on the shooting of L & O detective Ed Green (Jesse L. Martin). And then there's the theme music, the intro ("In the criminal justice system")… and that ineffable sound that leads from one scene to another. Yet Trial by Jury also has many aspects that set it apart from the other Law & Order shows. In focusing not on police procedure but on the trial process, it shines a brighter light on the defendants (who in most cases have already been apprehended when an episode starts), the juries (including the selection process, deliberations, and the role of jury consultants), the various lawyers' strategies, and even the judges' personal opinions. All of that leads to some interesting situations, like the scene in "Forty-One Shots" that finds a group of policemen, barred from the courtroom for making a disturbance during the trial of a cop killer, waiting anxiously outside for the verdict. Nevertheless, there are reasons why Trial by Jury failed to connect with viewers, airing for just two months in 2005 before being canceled by NBC. The cast is one of them; for example, A.D.A. Tracey Kibre (Bebe Neuwirth), the lead prosecutor, is tough but not especially likable. More than that, with its predilection for tight close-ups, personal details, melodrama, and such, the series is simply too much like standard nighttime TV fare. Good but not great, Law & Order: Trial by Jury (the set includes a few deleted scenes and a short featurette) will certainly have its adherents, but it falls a little short of its distinguished predecessors. --Sam Graham

This Law and Order series was rather disappointing, compared to the other high quality stories that we came to expect and enjoy from Dick Wolfe. in TBJ, the main characters of the A/DAs did not seem believable in many ways, when compared to other female A/DAs seen in L&O, SVU, and CI . Those women were strong and professional, and dressed in outfits befitting their education and high-ranking positions. The TBJ A/DAs were weaker characters who didn't present themselves as powerful women (yes, wardrobe did have an effect). Although Bebe Neuwirth's character did have fire and drive, she often looked defeated and beaten down, especially in scenes with mysoginistic males who spewed the same cliche insults. Making the females look like victims of this 19th century drivel was a turn-off. Their characters should have stood up to these neanderthals and fought back as highly educated no-nonsense prosecutors. Tracey's junior protege played by Amy Carlson (?) had no character and seemed like a deer in the headlights in most scenes. Her role was wasted. Even Jaimie Ross' portrayal of a judge fell apart uncharacteristically at the hands of a male judge from a previous disturbing episode (Patel), in a scene in the workout room that was better left on the cutting-room floor.
There was no mention of "Briscoe's" passing which I thought didn't pay him the respect he deserved, although Scott Cohen bravely stepped in and blended in well considering the big shoes he had to fill.
The stories were interesting but a little hard to follow and just didn't play out with the same L&O panache we've come to expect from such stellar performers in the line-up, many, if not all of whom appeared on other L&O shows over the years. L&O was always a hit but TBJ is a bit of a miss.

I am a Law and Order junkie...the part I always enjoy the most though is the legal side, so I've always wanted to watch this series, but it isn't available anywhere online like Hulu or Netflix, or even for sale as a digital download, so I had to do what now almost seems "old school" and buy the DVD set. It's totally worth it! Hours of entertainment, and my hope is that if many people by their DVD, maybe they will see that there is more interest in this type of show than they thought when it got cancelled. My only complaint is that they only made one season of the show!

I'd remembered having some critical comments at the time in 2005, but recently a friend of mine was playing an episode, and honestly with the look of 2011, even Neuwirth didn't look that bad.
It happens in different series, than the look after few years seems less sour,and even upgraded by the time.
In 2005, I've been amazed, maybe disturbed a bit by the contrast of that ADA (Newbirth)compare to Robinette, Kincaid, and so for, and their little more black and white view of the law, but now, after many other series, that Miss Kibre seems to fit a little more in the era.

...Law and Order: Trial by Jury was an attempt by the original series producers to look deeper into the Trial phase on each case. The Jury is in, and this brilliant, albeit short-lived spin off rates excellent in all categories. Each of the episodes offer great writing, production, and strong performances all around, and the first two shows are unfortunately the last for the long running character Lennie Briscoe.
Too bad this one was cancelled. Recommended to all Law and Order fans.
