I was a huge fan of District Attorney Alexandra Cabot on Law and Order: SVU, so I was thrilled when they brought her back as the bureau chief of a bunch of young district attorneys on Conviction. This show was marketed for different generation than the other Law and Orders, more specifically a younger demographic. These ADAs are in their late twenties, and know that there is little glory to be had with the cases that they're getting, but that they're fighting for something real. Their cases don't have the glitz and glamour of regular Law and Order, and there isn't always a sexual element like on SVU, but their determination and perseverance are a joy to watch.

Cabots group of young ADAs is comprised of:

Jim Steele: Steele is the Deputy Bureau Chief who has to take over when the other DBC is gunned down in the first episode. Steele is like his name, he is a man made of steel who tries to shape the younger attorneys looking up to him without becoming disillusioned himself. He's also in a relationship with one of them while secretly pining away for Cabot.

Nick Potter: Potter is the newest kid to join the bureau and is still wet behind the ears when it comes to criminal law. The other attorneys love to remind him of this and treat him like a rookie. Still he's determined to prove himself in their eyes and in Steele's after making a horrible mistake in the first episode.

Billy Desmond: Desmond is arrogant, cocky, and full of himself--but with good reason. He's undefeated in the courtroom (28-0) and he is determined to stay that way. He only takes cases that he can win and will even go as far to hand off a losing case to one of the other lawyers.

The first Law & Order series to not be called Law & Order, "Conviction" was NBC's very obvious answer to ABC's hit series Grey's Anatomy only with lawyers instead of doctors. Despite their own hopes that Conviction could do for law dramas what Grey's Anatomy had done for medical dramas, NBC (as with creator Dick Wolf's previously short-lived Law & Order: Trial By Jury) ultimately cancelled the series. Too bad, especially for fans of Stephanie March's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit character ADA Alex Cabot, as later episodes, according to March, would have dealt in depth with Alex, both in terms of her family and what makes her tick. Thankfully though, the producers were allowed to wrap up the series with a satisfying two-part finale. Conviction might've deviated somewhat from the typical L & O formula, but it still remained true in tone to the other Law & Order shows. Definitely a worthy addition to any Court TV DVD collection. Not so much for the packaging and extras which are solid, but for the episodes themselves which feature immaculate picture and sound. Not to mention the show's killer theme song "Destiny" by Syntax which can now be heard in both the main and closing titles. Props to Universal for a great transfer. Conviction - The Complete Series is a 3-disc (single-sided) set featuring all 13 episodes; Anamorphic Widescreen (1.78:1) video; Dolby Digital 5.Read more ›

A Kid's Review on January 12, 2007

I love this show!!!It's great that Alex was let out of Witness Protection after they caught the man that shot her. I can't believe Numb3rs beat it. Personally, I don't think Numb3rs is that great, maybe an episode or two.

Well.....I should have read the reviews more carefully. Part of me just could not believe how bad this show was. And, episode by episode, it steadily got worse.

Bad writing. Bad acting. Weak plots. Inaccurate legal scenarios. Unengaging characters. That's 5 non-stars.

Well written, excellent acting. A must for Anson Mount fans. I also thought Jordan Bridges acted his part very well. Wish it had been given a chance to develop further. But such is the way with many good shows.

This series sort of grew on me. When I saw the pilot, I thought 'well, we've all been here before, we've done it, just need to buy the t-shirt. But as I got to know the characters, their lives and legal decisions made me more and more interested. Of course, the lady lawyers are far too beautiful, slim and beautifully dressed. The men - not bad either. All in all, I enjoyed the series and am sorry it has ended.

Great show! Interesting, compelling, unique. It has everything you'd want in a law drama. I really don't understand why this was canceled after one season. There was so much that could have been done with the series. Series one was really enjoyable though.

Anson Mount is in this one year series about a district attorney's office in New York and even sans his long hair, beard and hat-- he's still Bohannan. These 12 episodes are well done--move fast and hold your interest.
