Critic Reviews for Law & Order: LA: Season 1

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (23)

Such ambitions help to excuse courtroom scenes so ridiculous that they force millions of viewers to annoy the tens of millions of neighbors who can hear them blurting "objection" at the screen.

Think of Law & Order: Los Angeles as the final frantic thrashing and splashing of a drowning man. NBC's trademark cops-and-courts franchise is going under, and there's no life preserver in sight.

Like anyone who switches coasts, LOLA may need a little time to settle in.

It's literally warmed-over Law & Order, but that doesn't mean it's unappealing.

LOLA for its part shows signs of getting that old Law & Order moxie back.

You don't get to the age of 20 in prime time by being a dummy, and there are few shrewder prime-time players than Dick Wolf, the guy who created the Law & Order franchise.
