5.0 out of 5 stars Law & Order - Always a winner!, September 30, 2005
By 
This review is from: Law & Order: The Fourth Year (DVD)
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?

Another advantage to watching the DVD is that there are no ads! Ads are so frustrating and distracting.

I couldn't agree more with this reviewer. Not to sound trite but most of television is a true wasteland ( no offense intended to the great writer T.S. Elliot "We are the hollow men, we are the stuffed men......") Another old TV delight is" The "Pretender" where a moral compass leads the way to the good out of the cesspool of evil. Even P.T. Sirokom would approve of this series.
