    Well, the advertisement here is a little confusing. It's listed as the 4th year, but also lists Dennis Farina as the star, and Farina didn't come aboard the series until the 15th year, after Jerry Orbach's departure from the series.

    The fourth year of Law & Order brought about some major changes to the series, with the departures of Captain Cragen and Paul Robinette from the series, replaced with Lt. Anita Van Buren and Claire Kincaid, bringing the first lead female characters into the series.

    There were several great episodes in this season, including one of my favorites where the detectives and lawyers were trying to track down a shooter in Buddy Holly glasses. This story was left somewhat unresolved, which led to a 2-part crossover with Special Victims Unit in its first year, and this show's 10th season. That's just one of many great stories from this season that I'm looking forward to having in my collection!

    The season finale also led to the departure of Michael Moriarty from the series as Assistant District Attorney Ben Stone. The following year, his character was replaced with Sam Waterston as Jack McCoy, who has been on the show ever since.

    All in all, I am anxious to add this set to my collection, and I hope you'll enjoy it too. After all, with all these reality shows flooding the airways these days, DVD sets are becoming more and more appealing. I prefer to spend my TV time watching something worthwhile like Law & Order, rather than trash like The Bachelor or Temptation Island. Do you prefer quality to trash?

    It was a great season, with Moriarty, Merkeson, Noth, Hennessy, and Jerry Orbach. The writers were at the top of their games and the definition on images is fine.

    A problem. One side of one (of three) disks doesn't work. It stutters and stops dead. You wind up missing four episodes. The problem has cropped up on other sets of the series as well.

    For this price, you expect the disks to work perfectly, especially in the absence of any worthwhile extras.

    I'd love to buy boxed sets from the other years but I'm not going to do it -- not just because I resent paying for poor quality goods but because having an episode flicker and freeze after five minutes is too frustrating an experience to be endured.

    Format: DVD
    The fourth season of the long running original Law & Order was a landmark season in the show's history. The revolving cast door was stil spinning; this time original stars Dann Florek (Captain Cragen) and Richard Brooks (Assistant DA Robinette) have left, and the cast would now feature it's first ever female leads. Detective's Briscoe (Jerry Orbach) and Logan (Chris Noth) get a new Lieutenant with Anita Van Buren (S. Epatha Merkerson), and DA Ben Stone (Michael Moriarty) would get a new assistant in Claire Kincaid (future Crossing Jordan star Jill Hennessy). The episodes packaged in this season set continue the "ripped from the headlines" style of crimes investigated by the detectives, and then the prsecution of the offenders, and it still manages to work out very well. This would be the last season for original cast member Michael Moriarty, as he would be replaced with long time vet Sam Waterston as Jack McCoy, who is still on the show to this day. All in all, the fourth season of Law & Order saw the innovative crime drama make a landmark in it's history, and this season set is a must own for die hard fans of the show.

    The fourth year of the long running series Law & Order is now available on DVD. Universal has released later seasons of the series on DVD and have now started releasing earlier seasons on DVD. Law & Order-The Third Year arrived on DVD this past spring.

    The Fourth Year covered the 1993-1994 season. The season began with a riveting case about a talk show host is embroiled in the mystery of a convicted child molester who is killed on the air with millions of people watching. One must remember that during the year 1993 talk shows were reaching their peak. Jenny Jones, Montel Williams, Rikki Lake, Sally Jesse Raphael, Oprah, Donahue, Rolanda, Maury, and Jerry Springer were all on the air during that time period. So for Law & Order to open it's season with a talk show related episode was very appropriate for the show which is known for story lines ripped out of the headlines.

    The actors who built the foundation for Law & Order appeared on the show during it's fourth year. Jerry Orbach, Christopher Noth, Steven Hill and Michael Moriarty were all members of the cast. This was also the year that Jill Hennessy and and S. Epatha Merkeson joined the cast.

    The set includes 22 episodes and 43 deleted and extended scenes. The episodes are on dual discs (meaning some content on one side, more episodes on the other side). Episode descriptions appear on the individual boxes that hold the DVD's. Special guests during the shows fourth year include Robert Klein, James Earl Jones, Jane Kaczmarek, and Allison Janney from The West Wing among others.

    I will admit though that I did have a problem with the dual disc. This is my first time having a problem with a Universal dual disc. Perhaps its because I watched it in my computer but after one viewing the flip disc was scratched.
