    Product Description

    The iconic show that earned 11 consecutive Primetime Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Drama Series continues as Law & Order: The Sixth Year arrives on DVD! Benjamin Bratt hits the streets with New York’s Finest as Detective Rey Curtis, and joins returning stars Sam Waterston, Jerry Orbach and Jill Hennessey in 23 gripping episodes ripped from today’s headlines. Also on the case are compelling guest stars, including Richard Belzer (Law & Order), Andre Braugher (The Mist), Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos), Peter Sarsgaard (Rendition) and Jennifer Garner (The Kingdom). This must-own 5-disc collection of the entire sixth season includes the crossover episode “For God and Country” from the Primetime Emmy Award and Peabody Award winning show Homicide: Life on the Street. Renowned creator Dick Wolf brings you television’s longest-running crime series, which has been honored by more than 50 Primetime Emmy Award nominations. Captivating and powerful, Law & Order: The Sixth Year will have you following the clues again and again!

    The beauty of the Law & Order franchise is its ability to capitalize on its revolving cast of characters. The sixth season of Law & Order introduces viewers to a new detective and kills off another series favorite. There's also a seamless crossover episode with Homicide: Life on the Street and a compelling season finale that gives insight into how the main characters deal with tragedy. The 23 episodes featured in the five-disc set originally aired during the 1995-1996 television season. Aside from a few style issues--and the lack of cell phones--the episodes hold up well today. After the departure of Detective Mike Logan (Chris Noth) at the end of last season, Lennie Briscoe (Jerry Orbach) gets a new partner. Rey Curtis (Benjamin Bratt) is a by-the-book do-gooder. A devoted husband and father, Rey sees things in black and white, while Lennie views things in shades of grey. It isn't until he helps send a man to the electric chair that Rey struggles with his own sense of morality. Though Lennie teases Rey for his youth and model-perfect good looks, the two work well together as they tackle cases involving an au pair charged with killing a baby, a racist serial killer targeting African Americans, and a rapist who may be released due to a technicality. Sam Waterson and Jill Hennessy return as attorneys Jack McCoy and Claire Kincaid. Under the watchful eye of their cantankerous boss Adam Schiff (Steven Hill), the pair are expected to keep criminals at bay, even when the evidence seems to be working against them. Hill is perfect in his role, ordering deals, demanding justice, and laying out non-PC justice. He delivers priceless lines to Jack, such as, "You have the victim and a confession. Munoz has crawled halfway out of the hole we dug for him 30 years ago. You hit him with the shovel before he crawls all the way out." Guest stars include Patti LuPone as a charming defense attorney, Kim Raver as a working mom whose baby is murdered, Amanda Peet as a Patty Hearst-type kidnap victim, and Jennifer Garner as a flirtatious graduate student who tempts a married man. Don't miss the last five minutes of the season finale. Without saying a word, Orbach conveys all the emotions of a guilt-ridden man. --Jae-Ha Kim

    5.0 out of 5 stars Law & Order - Season 6 - FINALLY! October 1, 2008
    By Cam T.
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    Season 6 of Law & Order begins with another cast change - Chris Noth is no longer present as Detective Mike Logan. As you may recall, in the 5th season finale, he punched out a city councilman who got away with murder and was mocking the outraged crowds. But Logan's action got him 'exiled' to Staten Island.

    Benjamin Bratt takes his place as Detective Reynaldo 'Rey' Curtis. Curtis was a good cop, in need of some seasoning though, but on a personal note, I found him too parochially minded at times. The season ends with the surprising death of a main character, but to keep things interesting, I'm not listing the character here.

    The 6th season of Law & Order continues the series tradition of addressing current social issues such as hate crimes, drugs, rape, racism, and various other crimes. This season also features the first crossover episode between Law & Order and Homicide: Life on the Street. Whether the episode from the second series is included in this set, I do not possess that information.

    Of course, the cast delivers excellent performances as always, from the wise-cracking Lennie Briscoe, played by the late, much-lamented Jerry Orbach, to the passionately driven Jack McCoy played by Sam Waterston, as he relentlessly pursues justice in the cases he receives.

    Now, Universal, get the rest of the seasons out!!!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Season! June 19, 2011
    Season 6 of Law and Order ranks up there with some of the other truly incredible seasons of the show...Rather than listing all of the great episodes, let me say this...pretty much every episode is highly entertaining...I have my personal favorites, but I enjoyed it from start to finish...

    This being the last season for Jill Hennessey playing Assistant ADA Claire Kincaid, definitely makes you appreciate her character...she portayed it very VERY well...her chemistry with ADA Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston), is practically unmatched...maybe Seasons 8 and 9 with Briscoe and Curtis, or seasons 11 and 12 with Briscoe and Green...but other than that, these two really worked well together and were an amazing really feel like they work for the District Attorneys office...and you never really find out if they are actually sleeping together, but you kind of sense that they are...given McCoy's "history" with prior female 2nd chair ADA' is heartbreaking to see how Claire Kincaid bites the dust in the season finale, but fortunately Carie Lowells portrayal of Jamie Ross was good enough of a replacement in Seasons 7 and 8...

    Also, we are introcuded to Briscoe's new partner, Detective Ray Curtis, as Det Mike Logan gets transfered to Staten Island as punishment for his temper getting the best of him in the Season 5 finale...they get off to a rocky start, but after a handful of episodes they are pals and start to develop some chemistry...which they perfect a couple seasons's great to get a fresh face in the department after 5 years of Mike knock on him, but it was definitely time for him to bow out and for someone new, and a bit more in contrast personality-wise and appearance-wise than Briscoe, to join the team...

    5.0 out of 5 stars About time! Law and Order Season Six February 8, 2009
    By P. Ryan
    I'm a big Law & Order fan, so I was very disappointed to find that the only seasons available for purchase were 1, 2, 5, and 14 (I think), as well as the most recent ones - until now. One of the most groundbreaking seasons, Season Six introduces Benjamin Bratt as Reynaldo Curtis, a very dynamic character who is proud of his heritage and doesn't react well to insults about it, as is shown several times throughout the season. It deals with current events, albeit from over ten years ago, and admittedly some of the references I did not understand. But this did not detract from the action and drama that are characteristic of the series. What did was the bonus episode from Homicide: Life on the Street. The camerawork, acting, and writing from H:LotS were all sub-par in my opinion, but since it's only one episode and it's from a different series, I did not fault Law & Order for it. All in all, this one of the best seasons of Law and Order, probably the best one available for purchase, and my only regret is that it ended too soon.

    Once again I thoroughly enjoyed this series. I would be happier if the rest of the series was distributed this year.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended August 4, 2014
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    I love the Law & Order Franchise, my personal favorite being SVU. This selection of stories has two of my favorite combinations: Benjamin Bratt with Jerry Orbach , Jill Hennessy with Sam Waterston. The difference between SVU and the original Law & Order is whereas SVU is primarily focused on character development L&O subjugates characterization to the plot. It works for both. This is a great collection, always filled with topical headlines of the day thinly adapted to L&O episodes. The interaction between principals as the story unfolds adds to the story line. My only gripe is occasionally liberal propaganda infiltrates the episodes. Hey, Dick Wolf, keep your views to yourself and just tell a story. All in all, though, a recommended addition to anyone's home library.

    5.0 out of 5 stars All the best stories in this season! January 6, 2009
    Although I love all the Law and Order seasons, especially after McCoy is Assistant DA, I think this is the season that has the best of the episodes; the ones that I recall as being so good when first televised. My favorites are "Girlfriends" (this daughter one could do without!), "Trophy" (puts McCoy up on ethical charges when a former girlfriend/ADA did no-no's on his behalf and was going to let him take the fall), "Humiliation" (YOU CAN'T KEEP IT IN YOUR PANTS!), and "Encore" (where a murderer who got off in an earlier episode commits another muder and is finally caught).
    Every episode with Lenny Briscoe is memorable and the show hasn't been the same since he passed but I think Law and Order: The Sixth Year is probably the best of the best. I highly recommend!!
