A longtime love of Law and Order

Alan Chartock's blog | 4.10.10

Each of us, at some time, may become addicted to something. OK, I admit it. I had to wean myself off of Diet Pepsi — and yes, I sometimes fall off the wagon.

That battle is now largely over, but the most serious addiction in my life continues to be “Law and Order” and all of the various spin-offs. How do you know when you have LaOA (Law and Order Addiction)? You know when you have seen each episode at least three times and have to make deals with yourself not to watch them yet again.

....Another spinoff, “Law and Order: Criminal Intent,” is terrific. Vincent D’Onofrio has been superb in the role of Detective Robert Goren. Like a fine wine, he’s grown better as he put on too much weight and got grayer.

For a brief period I worked for the New York City Police Department, and I have to tell you that D’Onofrio looks like a cop. One of the things I hate about the new cop shows (post-”Law and Order”) is that cops don’t look like these people. They look like D’Onofrio. Kathryn Erbe, Goren’s TV partner, is a good enough actress to make you believe that she was the daughter of a cop herself.
