Review - Law & Order: Los Angeles Season 1 Episode 1 Hollywood

Law & Order is one of television's most successful franchises. The original, which ran for 20 seasons and ended earlier this year, spawned two very successful spin-offs and even one over the pond. The format is simple and effective. There's an investigation and trial, no flash or frills.

Law & Order: Los Angeles, set in the eponymous location, is essentially the same as the other reincarnations, with location as the only different. Of course that opens more avenues for cases (and closes others), but the format is the same.

The series premiere, "Hollywood," is one of those episodes, where Hollywood critiques itself, attacking drugs, clubbing, fame whoring, overbearing parents, and all those things we see in tabloids all the time. Frankly, it's not a subject that interests me, and if the series starts off like this, I'm not enthused to see episode after episode like that.

Score: 8.0/10
