Law & Order: Trial by Jury - The Complete Series - The third Law and Order spinoff

Law & Order: Trial by Jury - The Complete Series
Law & Order: Trial by Jury - The Complete Series
I am a fan of Law and Order. I loved all the shows (SVU, Criminal Intent) as well as Trial by Jury. This show focus mostly on the trial process, not the police investigation. The show was cancelled after one season. For some reason Trial by Jury never seem to have picked up with the public even if it followed the same recipe as the other Law and Order: cases based partly on real criminal investigation. A strong cast. Endings that sometimes left the viewer feeling sad or even mad when the bad guy wins. A must see show. This DVD contains all 13 episodes.

Law & Order: Criminal Intent - The First Year / Law & Order: Criminal Intent - The Second Year Value Pack
Law & Order: Criminal Intent - The First Year / Law & Order: Criminal Intent - The Second Year Value Pack
I love this show. The first few minutes where they set the scene are my favorite: you see the protagonists, you see bits and pieces of things going on, you see the murder, but everything is showed in a very confusing way so you cannot understand what just happened. And then there is D'Onofrio playing the tortured and bizarre detective Goren.

      I have no clue where you dug up these funny laws but they are indeed something to chuckle on. What an absolutely adorable idea for an article.
