4.0 out of 5 stars The beginning, May 2 2004
This review is from: Law & Order: The First Year (DVD)
When Dick Wolf's innovative prime time cop drama hit TV in 1990, few, if any, could have predicted the longevity and impact that Law & Order would accomplish. Each hour long episode begins with partners Greevey (George Dzundza) and Logan (Chris Noth) investigating the crime and making the arrests, while the second half focuses on the ensuing trial, prosecuted by assistant D.A.'s Stone (Michael Moriarty) and Robinette (Richard Brooks) under the supervision of Adam Schiff (Steven Hill). These 22 episodes contained herein display the series in it's early stages; having not yet perfected it's now patented style, but on it's own it still manages to be an above average cop drama that would lay the groundwork for brilliant future seasons, spin-off's, and other shows that attempted to mimic it's style; many of which failed while Law & Order kept rolling, even when it suffered wholesale changes to it's cast season after season. Look for guest appearances by Samuel L. Jackson, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and William H. Macy.
