Editorial Reviews

In the twelfth season of Dick Wolf’s iconic Law & Order series, crimes of passion come to the forefront as Elisabeth Röhm joins the cast as ADA Serena Southerlyn and Dianne Wiest ends her tenure as DA Nora Lewin.  Tensions are running high amongst New York’s finest investigative and legal professionals with cases ranging from dog maulings to revived cold cases that bring to light errors of the past.  But as the season builds to a frenzy, some of the team will find themselves under attack for taking justice to the extreme.  Guest stars Gary Busey (Lethal Weapon) and Joe Piscopo (Saturday Night Live) joins Jerry Orbach, Jesse L. Martin, S. Epatha Merkerson and Sam Waterston in 24 gut-wrenching episodes from the riveting season that was dedicated to the victims of 9/11, their families, and the brave firefighters and police officers that came to their aid.

I am a true L&O junkie-and since they are no longer on TV, I get my fix with these DVD's. However, I too was upset that not only are some shows missing altogether (bought 10,11,12) (don't get the full season) but the episodes aren't always in sequence. Part of the fun is watching the characters change and evolve and that aspect is not always present. Comcast has the first eight episodes 'On Demand" if anyone is interested, but those are a bit worse in that the shows in each series are also not in sequence, some episodes are missing and in addition, in two seasons they show just a Part I or a Part III of a series! making those episodes useless-still, less expensive than the disks and these disks here are still good with the flaws and better than withdrawl!

I rated this item as I did because like years 9, 10, and 11, no synposes are available for any of the episodes. Guess I got spoiled by the earlier copies I bought which contain detailed synposes of each show.. I have the fourteenth year already, so I probably won't buy any more after the thirteenth year version is issued.

This season of the show had a special recording played to introduce the fact that Law & Order, Special Victims Unit and Criminal Intent of that season were dedicated to the first-responders. You will notice that after a certain number of episodes you will start to see the police wearing a black stripe over their badge as tribute to the officers who sacrificed their lives. It is also the highest rated season of Law & Order out of all 20 seasons. The episodes will not disappoint. They go from racism as a possible mental defect to tainted forensics. From a wild pit-bull attacking a dog-walker to a civilian killing a suspected terrorist. There is yet, another addition to the cast. Elizabeth Rohm who plays ADA Serena Southerlyn(Another character with a name inspired by Dick Wolf's own children). She could have used a better introduction in her premiere episode, but she certainly shines the episode DR 1-102 where she's not completely honest about being a lawyer and that almost costs her. Season 12 is definitely a must have for all fans of Law & Order. This was also the first year to introduce Law & Order: Criminal Intent, but that is a review for another DVD. If you do not have the entire series boxset because you're like me and you already started to buying individual seasons, then be sure to add this season to your top five list of all things Law & Order.

I have never watched an episode in this series where afterwards I wanted that hour of my life back. In other words, L&O is a GREAT series. My only caveat is that this season seemed a little "top-heavy" with crimes of the "ground-breaking" precedent-setting sort, undermining the notion that McCoy, Briscoe & Co. are just "ordinary" New York law enforcement professionals dealing with the day to day crimes of the largest metropolis in the United States.

I mean, in one "short" season we see McCoy handle multiple cases "ripped from the nation's headlines": the menace of pit bulls, war crimes committed in VietNam, famous people hiring hitmen to kill their spouses (at least 3x), blood diamonds, a CSI who repeatedly falsifies evidence to fabricate convictions---even Little Leaguers who fake their age to obtain an unfair advantage on the ballfield.

Frankly, while these kinds of cases can be very interesting, I'd like them in smaller does, mixed in with a lot more "ordinary" crimes, which can still be very intriguing and more plausible since surely no one New York prosecutor has personally handled just about every major precedent-setting case in America! ;)

I am very happy with Law and Order 12th year but when I tried to purchase Law and order 13th year I am informed that it can't be delivered to my address which seems odd since all of the other series have been delivered.

Although every season of Law & Order has stories "ripped from the headlines", this one seems to have more than most. As always, the scripts are tightly written and designed to evoke strong responses from viewers. The previous seasons had much less about the DA, but Dianne Wiest, who appears as an interim DA, is given an expanded role to showcase her acting chops. In one episode, she's even called as a witness. In the same one, the usual criminal trial is dispensed with in favor of putting the ADA on trial for possible sanction or disbarment, an extremely interesting view of something I'd never encountered. Elisabeth Rohm joins the series as this ADA; of all the ADAs in a 20-season series, she's my least favorite, but she gets to shine in a few episodes. The 2001-2002 season skillfully incorporates the events of 9/11 without going overboard; possibly some of that is due to many scripts having been written before then. From here until the final season, terrorism will play an increasingly noticeable part in the stories, but the range of plots is extensive. A particularly scary episode features a pit bull attack in Central Park; another has a form of road rage. Since the series is set in NYC, naturally most of the stories are specific to this urban environment, but plenty go beyond the city limits, all the way up to Albany. This season is highly emotionally satisfying, but the DVD set itself is frustrating as, once again, no episode lists or synopses are provided, either in the packaging or on the DVDs themselves. Very annoying, especially as the earlier seasons had such information, which was quite helpful. However, Wikipedia has this data if you need it.
