Law & Order new ADA

    Sorry, couldn't find the old thread ...

    Anyway, the new ADA is Linus Roache, who was on Kidnapped last season (as was new cop Jeremy Sisto, I guess).

    Oh, and Sam Waterston officially makes the move to DA. Hopefully this will give the show a much-needed boost.

    Interesting choice. Linus Roache is a terrific actor.

    Not that anyone asked, but I was watching the first couple episodes of the DVD of the very first season of Law and Order yesterday. Embarrassingly bad.
  7. I like it.

    The first season? I sure hope it improves, then ... I know I can't judge an entire season from the very first episodes. But man, they were tough to watch.

    Then again, you could have been referring to the new ADA. ::)
  10. I was, but you'll notice that L&O does';t really become the show we recognize -- I date it to the Torrents of Greed two-parter --until midway through Season One, and it takes off when Greevey gets killed at the beginning of Season Two or Three.

    I remember in the pilot, they had a woman cracking jokes in the courtroom. They had bad music too.

    I don't think it lasted too long though.

    The first real episode, Prescription for Death, was one of my favorites from the early days. As was The Reaper's Helper (No. 3)

    Geez, do you guys really know all the episodes by their title? I need a little more description than that.

    I don't know much about these new cast members, but I don't think the actors were the problem. The scripts were. I hope Dick Wolf has been paying as much attention to the writing staff as he has to the cast.

    Promoting Jack McCoy was a good move. Waterston needed something new to do, and I'm sure his role will be bigger than when Fred Thompson or Dianne Wiest had it.
