    By N. Durham HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on March 19, 2007
    Format: DVD
    The fifth season of Law & Order marked another milestone for the long running series. With original assistant DA Ben Stone (Michael Moriarty) gone, veteran actor Sam Waterston entered the scene as Jack McCoy; the longest serving cast member after S. Epatha Merkerson and the late, great Jerry Orbach, and he's still on the series to this day. The fifth season also marked the final year for original cast member Chris Noth as Detective Mike Logan, who seals his fate in the season finale. Despite the revolving door cast, Law & Order still managed to provide some powerhouse acting and great chemistry from the main cast of the show. The interplay between detectives Briscoe (Orbach) and Logan (Noth) is by far the best the series has ever provided, and the chemistry between McCoy (Waterston) and fellow assistant DA Claire Kincaid (Jill Hennesey) was very well done to boot. S. Epatha Merkerson is great as well as Lieutenant Van Buren, and Steven Hill is, well, Steven Hill. This fifth season also provided even more "ripped from the headlines" storylines, including one eerily resembling the John Gotti case, and they are done excellently as well. Sadly though, while this is the last superb cast lineup, this is also one of the real last excellent seasons to come from the series, as the revolving door of cast members and staff writers would continue to turn. All in all, as far as network TV cop dramas go, this is about as good as it gets.

    This season marks the first season with Sam Waterston playing the role of executive assistant district attorney Jack McCoy. Jack replaces Michael Moriarty's Ben Stone, who had held the position of lead prosecutor for the first four seasons. Waterston turns out to be a great addition to the cast. It's not that he is better or worse in the role than Moriarty - he's just different. Moriarty's Ben Stone was more of the crusader, where Waterston's Jack McCoy is more out to right specific wrongs rather than "make new law", which was often Stone's objective. Once again the cast has great chemistry. We have what is probably the finest old cop/young cop partnership in the history of TV in Lenny Briscoe and Mike Logan, the two DA's Jack and Claire have great chemistry to the point that you are kept guessing as to whether or not anything more ever goes on between the two of them than just business, S. Epatha Merkerson is commanding and thorough as Lieutenant Van Buren, and then of course there is Steven Hill as the actual elected District Attorney and his memorable one liners and reflections that add just a pinch of needed spice to each episode.

    The episodes are of high caliber too. The one that always comes to my mind is "Coma". This is one of the few L&O episodes where the actual murder is solved, but you know there has to be more to the story of what appears to be a murder for hire. Unfortunately, the actual murderer is a pseudo street person who has just died of natural causes when he is found out. The problem is, the husband of the victim is the actual suspect. He is arrogant and extremely guilty looking with the exception of that pesky problem of evidence. This case is revisited in season six.

    I've just seen all the episodes on disc one. It appears that the series was actually shot in widescreen. I was surprised because I didn't think any shows were shot that way in 1994-95. This is what I consider forward thinking. As a photographer I can tell you that the cinematography is spot on. The entirety of the wide field is used 90% of the time. Actors are placed all the way on the left and right of the screen in many scenes. The widescreen imagery gives great ambiance to the stories. In addition, the picture seems to have been mastered in high definition. The images are nice and sharp. Since the series was shot on film there is some grain present; however, the grain does not detract from enjoyment at all. This is a top notch presentation by Universal. Bring on season six with Benjamine Bratt!

    An opposite from the conservative Ben Stone, this prosecutor drives a motorcycle and loves to win his cases. But that does not stop him from gaining true justice. He will not accept a martyr, sacrificing himself for someone he loves just so he could win the case. But he is ready to prosecute anyone to the full extent of the law, including police officers as seen in "Competence" as he believes that they should be held to a higher standard. There seems to be some sort of flirtatious relationship between him and ADA Kincaid and maybe even more. But to focus on that would be like saying that Stabler and Benson's flirtatious relationship is more important to the show than the actual show. The controversial issues mentioned in the episodes this season include an off-duty police shooting, treatments in the mental healthcare system, rape/sex in high schools, repressed memories of childhood molestation by a priest, gay rights and abortion. Some these subjects are still a hot topic in modern times and should be looked back at to see how much has changed (or hasn't changed in some cases.) Another reason to get this season is because this is the last time we will Chis Noth as Detective Mike Logan on Law & Order. He would have sent on to repraise his character in the TV movie Exiled, and then return as a regular in Criminal Intent's 5th year after guest starring in the 4th. This is the first season to be released on the widescreen format to be played on HDTV's and laptops as well as the conventional TV sets. Also Dan Floreck, like in season 4, directs an episode in this season, but unlike in year four, he guest stars as his character, Captain Donald Cragen. Get this season on DVD to see what some would consider the "Law & Order Dream Team" tackle the tough cases and hard-hitting topics that still question our existence as human beings today.
