    Review

    From its gritty documentary look to its signature note-knocking "tching-tching" that signals scene changes, Law & Order was a groundbreaking cop show when it debuted in 1990. It has since earned Emmys for Best Dramatic Series and spun off satellite franchises, and reruns of the original series are as omnipresent in syndication as those of I Love Lucy. Devoted fans and those who came late to the series can catch it from the beginning with this six-disc set that contains all 22 episodes from the inaugural season. Law & Order is television's most resilient series. It has survived wholesale changes to its ensemble. One of the secrets of the show's durability: its compelling structure. The first half of each hour-long episode is classic police procedural in which "Law," personified in the first season by partners Greevey (George Dzundza--and be sure to catch the interview segment with series creator Dick Wolfe to learn how to pronounce his name) and Mike Logan (Christopher Noth, the future "Mr. Big" on Sex and the City) investigate a crime and make an arrest. The second half chronicles the ensuing trial, as prosecuted by assistant district attorneys Ben Stone (Michael Moriarty) and Paul Robinette (Richard Brooks) under the supervision of Steven Hill's Adam Schiff (more feisty and animated here than in later seasons). Law & Order is also distinguished by its superb writing. Several episodes take their inspiration from the headlines, including "By Hooker, By Crook" about a socialite-run call-girl ring, and "Indifference," which recalls the tragic Lisa Steinberg child abuse case. Others deal with such hot-button issues as abortion ("Life Choice") and AIDS ("The Reaper's Helper"). Another plus is the talent pool of character actors who lend their verisimilitude. Guest stars include Samuel L. Jackson and Philip Seymour Hoffman ("The Violence of Summer"), The West Wing's John Spencer ("Prescription for Death"), Sex and the City's Cynthia Nixon ("Subterranean Homeboy Blues"), and The Sopranos' Dominic Chianese ("Sonata for Stolen Organ"). --Donald Liebenson

    5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST-HAVE Set for any TRUE-BLUE "Law & Order" Fan! November 9, 2011
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    I pre-ordered this DVD BoxSet as soon as I heard about it's release-approx. 1 month b/f the release date of November 8th (yesyerday). I've purchased all of the "L & O" Season Sets since they began being released in 2002. Up to this point, Seasons 1 theough 8 & Season 14 have been put out. I've read some reviews that were a bit negative regarding this "Complete Series" DVD Set, due to the fact that many Seasons would have to be re-purchased. However, for a fan like myself-a fan that would have bought ALL of the Season DVD Sets-buying "The Complete Series" 20-Season BoxSet for the reasonable price of $450.00 would SAVE me $. & as an added bonus, all of the 20 Seasons are @ my disposal @ once! No more waiting for Universal to release individual Seasons once or twice/year! Now onto the DVD Set itself....1 of the most beautiful & handsome looking DVD Sets that I've ever seen (& DVD collecting is 1 of my biggest hobbies). Each Season is packaged in a 'tray-stack' 5 or 6 disc set, w/ amazing cover artwork! Also, there is a wonderful 46 page Episode Guide Book, all in full color, & printed on heavy-duty, high-gloss quality paper! It is the perfect guide for the DVD Set. Each Season has 2 pages w/ episode synopsis & great photos from the entire run of the show-giving the owner a guide as to what episodes are on what disc, per Season! The picture & sound quality are amazing, & speaking for the 9 Seasons that have already been released (1 through 8 & 14), the pic/sound quality is even better. Seasons 1 through 4 are Full-Screen, & 5 through 20 are Anamorphic Widescreen (1.78:1 Ratio). Read more ›

    4.0 out of 5 stars Disk error but Amazon takes care of its customers. March 1, 2012
    By JScott
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    Just wanted people to make sure that they check every disk in every season after receiving this if you buy it. Luckily my wife thought to do this and we had two copies of season 15, disk one but didn't have disk two. Being the guy I am, wouldn't have noticed that for quite some time since I look forward to starting the series from the beginning. I figure the chances that I happened to receive the only manufactured error like this was fairly slim so wanted others to be aware. Amazon took car of it in no time and replaced my copy immediately.

    I just recieved my Law & Order mega boxset-what can I say but...WOW!!! Before I discuss the dvd, I'd like to comment on the seller. I bought this item used from Buy_The_Book. The item arrived in 7 days(Great so far!) The item's condition was described by them as brand new with a slight damage (a slim cut) on the barcode. The boxset arrived brand new in it's orginal plastic, in near mint condition, and the damaged barcode was almost unnoticeable. And unless you're planning on reselling this item, a slightly damaged barcode means virtually nothing. And besides, who in their right mind would buy this stunningly beautiful boxset at the prices it's offered at, just to resell it later? And as icing on the seller's cake, they offered it at the almost unheard of price of $350.00 (The same seller is currently offering this boxset in the exact same condition for $472.00-looks like I bought mine just in the nick of time!) And the dvd was sent carefully and meticulously packaged to protect against damage during shipping. Add up all these factors, and this seller could easily sell ice cubes to an eskimo!
    Now for the dvd-where was I again? Oh yeah-WOW!!!! I've been a huge fan of this tv show almost from the very beginning. It's easily the 2nd best crime/courtroom drama ever made, 2nd only to Perry Mason (The original b/w episodes). What I've always liked so much about Law & Order was it's documentary like feel and the excelent writing and acting. But what I really liked most about the show was that the prosecuters (The Good Guys) DIDN'T ALWAYS WIN!!! This gave the show a true sense of realism that many other popular crime shows (like NCIS) just don't have.
    I'm so glad Universal decided to release all 20 seasons in one massive beautiful boxset.

    How about a quick review on the product, rather than the cost, wouldn't that be refreshing?

    As the title states, Law & Order is a fantastic series. I was unhappy to hear that it had finally been cancelled, but once word got out that this box set would be released before Christmas, it lessened the pain a bit. I was a huge fan of nearly all casts - particularly those appearing in the first four seasons.

    Captions always make me happy, & all seasons include English. Spanish subtitles are available on seasons one - eight & fourteen, seasons previously released. French subtitles are found on a few of these as well.

    What I found surprising, & rather disappointing, is that the only Special Features/Extras in the entire 20 seasons are found in the previously released seasons. Seasons nine - thirteen & fifteen - twenty include only the episodes. To my knowledge there isn't a requirement for this sort of thing, but for a show with 20 YEARS under its belt, I couldn't help but shake my head.

    Enjoy your 450+ episodes! I know I am!

    Season 14
    I'm now watching season 14 and it looks like the same old fullscreen to me. I think they just whipped up the new ones and copied what they had for the existing ones. At least they got rid of the double-sided discs which I hate.
