Editorial Reviews

The groundbreaking series honored with more than 50 Primetime Emmy® Award nominations since its inception continues with Law & Order: The Eighth Year. Jerry Orbach, Benjamin Bratt, Sam Waterston, Carey Lowell and S. Epatha Merkerson return for riveting cases of military corruption, drive-by shootings, a killer infected with the AIDS virus and an issue that hits close to home: abuse of power in the District Attorney’s office. This 5-disc set contains all 24 compelling episodes, including “Tabloid,” co-written by Oscar® nominee Alec Baldwin, “Stalker,” winner of a Primetime Emmy® Award for Outstanding Cinematography, and the crossover episode “Baby It’s You, Part 2” from Homicide: Life on the Street. Featuring guest stars Kate Walsh (Private Practice) and Edie Falco (The Sopranos), Law & Order: The Eighth Year delivers the intelligent and gripping entertainment that has become synonymous with creator Dick Wolf’s legacy and made the show the longest-running crime series in the history of television.

5.0 out of 5 stars The older Law & Orders June 28, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best June 19, 2011
Format:DVD
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)...

This season has a special show that was only seen on TV once called "BLOOD" this was the best plot written for this show, with a big twist at the end.

3.0 out of 5 stars Showing Its Age February 20, 2011
By Gilster
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a VERY selective viewer of Network Television, this series was another
that I only began to watch in its syndication.

It immediately grabbed my attention with its brilliant writing, and excellent
acting. What further amazed me as the seasons went on.....was that each
successive actor (of which there were many), seemed BETTER than the last!

Well, all good things must come to the end I guess......

This season compilation (#8) is the first that was somewhat dissapointing.
The scripts are WEAK, although the acting still very good.
I kept watching each episode, hoping that the next storyline would improve.
Unfortunately that was not the case. I can only hope that the writing gets
better for the following seasons.

That said.....Law and Order is STILL one of the best shows ever produced.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A great television crime series that show all levels criminal acts and lots of life issues that leaves us in thought of how we might combat these life issues that play on your ethic and moral boundaries that leave with many thoughts to some of todays continuous problems that maybe completely and have no resolution. A television series that you may watch again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars One & only trilogy--fantastic April 22, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Tremendous star-power, brilliant writing, razor-sharp direct & cross examinations & wonderful set design elevate the three-parter to a Law & Order classic that was never done again. Well, you can't do perfect, twice, right? It's perfect.
