Upholding LAW & Keeping ORDER [Aug. 6th, 2007|07:59 pm]

[mood |geeky]

The Law & Order franchise just keeps on ticking. The mothership will launch its 18th Season in January 2008. Special Victims Unit is entering its ninth season. And Criminal Intent will be back for season seven - airing on the USA Network before getting a run on NBC.

The Law & Order Cast Spreadsheet has been my little baby for a long time now - after finding an embryonic version of it online way back when.

Over its eighteen seasons, the original series has had twenty-six different cast members. Eleven in the last four seasons alone - including two new recruits for the coming year: Jeremy Sisto as Detective Cyrus Lupo to partner Detective Green and Linus Roache to play EADA Michael Cutter, taking Sam Waterson's position in the series paradigm... while Waterston's Jack McCoy fills the role of District Attorney.

Law & Order is the longest running series still on air in the Tommy Westphall Universe. The original twenty-six year run of Doctor Who takes the longest-running drama title... at least until we fold in those recent daytime soap opera additions.

We've got fictional hospitals, fictional churches and now a fictional University.

Hudson University - mostly seen on Law & Order - also brings in Tru Calling and Without a Trace?

Anyone got more info on this Tommy-verse college?

Jobs you don't want in the Tommyverse... [Jun. 1st, 2006|08:00 pm]


With the departure of Annie Parisse as ADA Alexandra Borgia on "Law & Order," she's the second character in that part of the L&O paradigm to be killed off and the sixth ADA overall. If you're going to be a character on L&O, better to be the Executive ADA or the Commander of the Police - only two in each position over 16 seasons.

Other jobs you don't want to have in the Tommyverse: Murphy Brown's secretary, Sunnydale High's principal (Buffy)or the C.O. of the Pegasus (Battlestar Galactica)

Dennis Farina is also leaving Law & Order, only the fourth "Old Cop" in the series' run. Speculation has it that Detective Green will inherit a younger partner this season, flipping the old cop/young cop dynamic on its head. That'll be hell for my Law & Order Crossover Spreadsheet - but is a good way to mix it up on the show.

As long as the rumours of Sam Waterston's leaving are just that - though he'll always run second to Lieutenant Van Buren who started the year before.
