Dan you are right about the crazy cast changes. The original detective team was the best! Stupid decisions....

This show is still on the air. Is the end date changed?

Oh, yeah - I liked it too.

Joe, you're being unnecessarily harsh. There's no reason for that.
True, the stories weren't in the same league as the other L&O franchises, but the show was new, character development was being done, and the writers were looking for that soap opera "hook" the other L&Os have. And the show was badly mismanaged - I mean, really, kill off a character and then run new shows featuring him?
The cast changes were also badly done, as was some of the casting itself. Alfred Molina as ADA, yes; as a detective (with a totally unbelievable reason for the change), no. Terrance Howard's character was made to look more inept than capable. And Alana De La Garza's character's relocation to L.A. was only slightly more believable than Molina's, but could have worked. The best casting was the original detective team ( a definite yin for yang developing from Episode 1), their boss, who was later re-charactered as a closeted lesbian (this should have been done either right from the get-go or somewhere in the second or third season), and Peter Coyote as the politically-ambitious DA.
To sum it up - I think the series could have been saved if it wasn't so badly mismanaged as to make me wonder if it was f***ed up by design.

Laura...are you nuts?! This was the worst spinoff ever! It had a terrible group of low rated actors! Plus the stories were really bad and silly enough for some stupid people like you thought it was funny! Hahaha! The joke was on you!

I can't believe this! This show is great, funny and had a great cast. This is just wrong
