I feel like I had been waiting forever for the Law & Order: Los Angeles premiere. Well, last night was the night and I obviously set my TiVo (for a season pass) so I wouldn't miss any of the action. Before I get into my thoughts about the new series, I think I should explain my love for Law & Order a little bit. I don't really know what it is but I can watch Law & Order all night, every night. Luckily since the show has been around for so long and since we have several branches of the franchise (the original, CI, SVU), I can basically watch it all the time . . . and I do. It's my favorite show on TV and it never gets old for me. So, you now probably understand why this premiere has been so highly anticipated (for me at least). OK, here are my thoughts about last night's premiere of L&O LA:
- I do not like the different tone of the DUN-DUN sound. All the other L&O series use the traditional (and amazing) DUN-DUN sound. Why mess with greatness?
- There is a definite LA vibe (as expected). Everything has more sparkle, most glitz. Honestly, I miss the New York grit a bit. But whatever, that is just the way LA is.
- To tack on more to point #2, L&O LA is definitely what CSI: Miami is to the CSI franchise . . . if you know what I mean. Oh, and that is not a knock, I like CSI: Miami. It is just the more glamorous, more dramatic sister that we still like but is just a little different.
Overall, I am a fan. It's true, in my eyes, the franchise can't really do any wrong. The series seems so different without New York — a component you just cannot replace. Also, I am not sure if I will LOVE these characters the way I love Benson and Stabler. Time will tell. Regardless, I will keep watching week after week.
