    Jesse L. Martin is out ...

  2. Wow.
    I'm bummed.
    I think the mothership really has been revived. Even the production values seem fresher. Sisto and Martin work well together.

    I like the new ADA. He reminds me of a young Jack McCoy. I'd guess that's exactly what the writers and producers are trying to do.

    It's becoming ER without the absurd disasters and the random couplings.

    Never was a big Martin fan. Nine years? Didn't realize he was on the show that long.
  6. He won me in that episode about the little-girl serial killer when he bonded with her friend and got the other girl to confess. Also watching the relationship between him and Briscoe develop was a nice arc. He was Lennie's last partner, after all.

    I must admit, I didn't give him that much of a chance. He seemed to be a lightweight compared to Curtis and Logan.
  8. I thought he was a monster compared to Curtis, to whom I was never more than lukewarm.
  9. Anthony Anderson (of K-Ville) to replace him.

    I'm not thrilled, but my "The Shield" friends said he is a good dramatic actor.

    I've seen one new episode of the L&O. I'm pretty content watching the reruns.

    Anderson did an extended guest shot on "SVU" as the guy who filled in for Benson as Stabler's partner. I wonder if he'll come back as the same character.

    He was tremendous in "The Shield" as Antwon Mitchell, a bad-ass drug lord who could also control things from behind bars.
