Not that there's anything wrong with that

Several people are posting about the new former ADA Serena Southerlyn outing herself in her firing scene on Law and Order (like Dawn Summers and Susanna Corlett of cut on the bias fame). We've never gotten around to getting a second dish to get local channels on Dish Network, so we haven't watched new episodes of Law and Order in quite a while.

I suppose <sarcasm>I should be morally incensed that a normal, ordinary character was a *gasp* lesbian</sarcasm>, or that, as Marvin Kitman said one time for CNN, Wolf is "replacing the hot, sexy assistant DA with another hot, sexy assistant DA who herself replaced a hot, sexy assistant DA." I just can't work myself up for it.

I loved s eeing George Dzundza (as Greevy) and Chris Noth (as Logan) act against each other. God rest his soul, I miss Jerry Orbach as Briscoe, especially how he and Chris Noth interacted. Steven Hill (who played DA Adam Schiff) leaving was the final nail in the coffin. I can't stand Sam McCoy (the character), and neither Dianne Wiest or Fred Thompson can match Steven Hill. Let's not even get into the 4 times a day showings on TNT and uncounted reruns on USA.

I just can't summons the energy to get excited about anything about Law and Order any more.
