Law and Order Season 8 is without a doubt one of the best seasons of the shows 20 year run...and unfortunately the most recent of them all that is available to purchase on dvd...why seasons 9-20 are unavailable is beyond me...

This is the last season of Assistant ADA Jamie Ross (Carie Lowell), working with ADA Jack McCoy...she played the role VERY well...may have even matched the performance of her predecessor Claire Kincaid (Jill Hennessey)...McCoy is brilliant as always, as is Detective Lenny Briscoe...Detective Ray Curtis has completely grown into his character in this season...the chemistry between Briscoe and Curtis is starting to peak...amazing performances all around...and of course Lt Van Buren and DA Adam Schiff...nothing but the best from them as always.

There are a few standout episodes that are truly riveting...and let's keep in mind that this is in the time period when this show was at its pinnacle...I would say between Seasons 5-16 to be exact, but, particularly seasons 6-12 is where this show really enthralls...My personal favorites of Season 8 are as follows:
- Nullification, Baby it's You, Under the Influence, and Monster (the season finale)

You learn a little bit more about the personal lives of the shows characters, without digging too deep and changing the premise of the show...they started to do that a bit by around the 6th season but in the 8th season we get to learn a bit more...and it makes the show just that much better...the occasional cliffhanger type episode is also a real treat...which has been done on a couple occasions prior to season 8, but in this season we get three back to back episodes (one of which takes place in Baltimore and includes Detective Munch, etc)...

We love watching Law and Order on TV; the ones where they play 3 or 4 in a row of reruns. It was recommended that Season 7 and 8 were the place to start buying. They actually are better than the new ones; more details, story, acting and substance than the current way they are doing the show.

Law and Order Season 8 is one of the best of its long run. What makes this series so good this season is the great chemistry between the actors and the storylines are well written, never dull or predictable.

Cary Lowell especially shines in season eight. She is compassionate, principled,smart and expressive. Her face displays the gamut of her emotions.

Jerry Orbach, always witty, is even better in season eight. He has the same dry humor but also deals with his daughter's addiction and arrest. This softer side of Lenny as he is trying to connect with his daughter is some of his best work.

Season eight has some of the best plotted shows in Law and Order history. Cary Lowell (Attorney Jamie Ross) is brilliant in the episode that confronts the horrible practice of female genital mutilation; this is groundbreaking in a crime drama. She is also marvelous in the episode where her integrity is on the line for a mentally ill defendant.

Law and Order has never shied away from controversial topics and the moral questions that haunt the characters. Season eight has episodes that confront assisted suicide, child abuse, paparazzi and the first amendment, and the death penalty. Adam Schiff is in an election year and the politics of his DA office and reelection are yet another factor in the disposition of cases.

An added bonus is the addition of the Homicide Life on the Streets episode with Briscoe and Curtis along with Sam Waterson traveling to Baltimore to investigate the terrible death of a teenaged model. Lenny has great rapport with Detective Munch and tells Munch how alike they are. "You wear a badge and avenge the dead." Well said, Lenny.

Season opens with a bang! Literally. It makes sort of an impact showing kids who're wannabe gangsters kill a delivery boy and the involvement of the Catholic Church on confessions. This season seems to have a lot wise-asses and more so than usual in Law & Order. Also just about every episode covered sickening topics such as drunk driving and the raping a mentally challenged high school student to controversial topics like militias, the intentional spreading of aids/HIV and female circumcision. This seasons marks the second time Law & Order crosses over with Homicide: Life On The Streets with Detectives John Munch(played Richard Belzer) and Paul Falsone(played by John Seda) helping out the 27th Detectives and NY County ADA's who later go to Baltimore in the Homicide episode the close the case. Also this is Carey Lowell's ADA Jamie Ross's last season as a series regular. She guest stars in seasons 10 and 11 and as of the spin-off, Law & Order: Trial By Jury, she has become a judge. There was a lot of personal insight brought into the character development this season. Without giving too much away, Adam is up for reelection, Jamie gets involved in custody battle, Jack crosses the line, Anita sues the department, Rey's wife is diagnosed with MS and Lennie's kid gets in a jam. The series finale was centered around the actions the main cast had took throughout the season and how it came back to bite them in most cases. Buy this season, because the episodes are memorable, well plotted and well written and definitely includes highlights of not only the characters of the current season, but also of series as well. Buy seasons to complete your Law & Order collection.
