Law & Order: The People's Plea will gander through the three current flavors of the L&O family:
Law & Order, a show about law, order, and ampersands, airs Fridays at 8 p.m. on NBC. Yes, they used to be on at 10 p.m. You can thank Jay Leno for that time switch.
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is for the more gruesome crime buffs out there. The cast is fuller, and it's not always about finding the rapist/murderer, but how to deal with the aftermath. It airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on NBC.
Law & Order: Criminal Intent is your straight-from-the-can whodunnit. Sometimes we know "who done it," and the fun is in the detectives finding the perp, and letting everyone know in the final five minutes how and why they did it. The law portion of the show is almost entirely inconsequential.
Which one's the best? You tell me which of your children you love more, and then I'll answer you.
You might as well scrawl a giant question mark on my bare naked chest.
Ah, dead immigrant children. Or as SVU calls it, "the Christmas episode."
It's Falsified DNA and Green Week on NBC. Reduce, reuse, recontaminate!
Would you kill someone that used a pink iPhone?
Asphyxiation and Internet tough guys. Finally together at last.
Terrorism and silly putty. Not exactly a lethal combination.
A redhead was raped and murdered! Just kidding, this one's about the prison system.
Yay! Female con artist!
Eric McCormack plays an outside-the-box CEO who enjoys foosball. A little TOO much.
A seemingly cookie-cutter show by L&O's standards flies off the rails and into a federal frenzy.
Welcome back, rape and murder.
