The new season of Law & Order has fans speculating that this series will focus more on police work than the lives of regular citizens. However, the revival seems to have the same problem. It reinforces the systemic status quo with no place for a fictional status quo. The revival also lacks the small stories, characters, or routine details that make Law & Order so memorable.
While Law & Order may have gone on hiatus for almost a decade, it was never really gone. Regardless of its shortcomings, the show was a crucial ingredient in a culture fixated on true crime and police procedurals. It also appeased the longing of an audience that craved some kind of justice and closure for crimes committed. Hence, a new season of Law & Order could be an exciting addition to our television schedule.
