    I've been counting the days till the premiere. I was....somewhat disappointed. Maybe I was expecting too much? To start, the ****ed with the opening them song. Why??? Jeffrey Donovan, who I absolutely LOVED in Burn Notice, was so wooden and he had some sort of affectation to his voice that bugged. I liked Camryn Manheim. Hoping she gets better. On the Order side of the house - maybe it's my deep and abiding fangirling love over Linus Roache but Hugh Dancy as the EADA just did nothing for me. I know he's been in a ton of things and is supposedly super talented but he was just...boring. I did like the female assistant ADA. However, they didn't give her much to do. Previous Assistant ADAs are out there investigating, talking to people, working with the cops. But nothing like that from her. I'm hoping this was just pilot jitters and they get into a groove as the season goes on. I'll continue to watch because I'm a Law & Order geek.

      Their defining moments are Anal Probe, Mr. Hankey, and Lemmiwinks.

      I think they're trying to tell us something.

      • I was mildly surprised that the History Channel series Abraham Lincoln did not disappoint, and if it was as close to accurate as can be I actually learned a few things.

            I was riveted by DDL's Lincoln and when DVDs were still a thing bought a copy. The actor that plays Lincoln here does a very fine job even if one were to compare which is pretty high praise.

                I didn't watch it. This prob sounds weird but I was watching an older episode on Sundance(Can't get enough of Lenny Briscoe). I did tape it though and I found out that any episode on BBC, Sundance, and WE also gets recorded. :/ Wasn't really a fan of Roache or Anderson but could put up with Sisto that the episodes they were on the last coupla years. Kinda surprised about Donovan because I enjoyed Burn Notice too and I've liked Manheim in some of the shows I've seen her. We'll see what happens. I hope the whole season doesn't turn out like the last episode of the Sopranos as in w*f(!).

                • Weird? I plan my week around Law & Order reruns. Not only Sundance (starting today at 1:00pm!) and WE, but BBC America every Wednesday. It's on 6 days a week!

                    Watched the first part and liked it so far. Between that and the Grant miniseries last year, History Channel has been doing well with those recently.

                      • I plan to watch L&O this weekend. I figure it will take a few episodes to get its footing back so I am not expecting much early.

                                It was. Mulaney is wonderful.

                                The musicals tribute to the NY subway really made me homesick.
