Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

It’s a big night for NBC!  What is arguably their most popular scripted show still on the air and definitely the most popular of the family, Law & OrderLaw & Order: Special Victims Unit is returning for its eleventh season this evening.  We’re interested to see if Leno’s lagging ratings get a bit of a bump from the SVU lead-in.

Here we’ve collected the few promotional trailers we’ve across this summer, including first looks at Prison Break‘s Wentworth Miller as a bad-boy cop and Christine Lahti as the new ADA with a bit of an attitude.  No look yet at Eric McCormack’s guest appearance yet, though.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

We have two new sneak peeks at the season premiere of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. The first clip gives us more of a look at Wentworth Miller’s bad-boy attitude than the first trailer we posted a bit ago and also gives us a bit of the storyline and a peek at how race is going to factor  into the episode.  Clip two is our first look at Christine Lahti starring as the new “Executive ADA”, who’s got one hell of an attitude herself!

Law & Order

Oh man are we excited!  DVR Life has been a die-hard Law & Order fan since our wee middle school days.  Not sure why the show mesmerized our 11 year old minds, but it did.  Here we are now, 18 years later and still fans!  That’s right!  With Law & Order returning for it’s 20th season, we can’t claim to have been there since the beginning, but not many folks out there can.

While we have been there since the beginning for both Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Law & Order: Criminal Intent, we have always enjoyed the original just a smidge more.  There’s nothing else quite like the real Law & Order for us, so we’re stoked to check out the first murder of the new season.  We’re also pretty glad we don’t have to wait all the way until January for a new season like we did last year.

Law & Order returns for it’s twentieth season on Friday, September 25th at 8pm.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

To start off their 11th season, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit has enlisted Prison Break‘s Wentworth Miller.  He’ll guest star as a cop who comes across a rape victim while (literally) scaring the crap out of a meth head!  Sounds like fun.  Best part of the clip comes when Olivia gets a big old slap to the face!  Oh, the drama!

Along with being the biggest month of the year for both series and season premiere’s for TV, September is also one of the biggest months for TV on DVD releases.  Don’t ask us why.  We think it’s kinda stupid to wait until September as, like we’ve already pointed out, the month is crammed with plenty of stuff to watch on TV AND it doesn’t give people much time to catch up before the next season begins, beyond the fact that it’s a wallet-buster.  It’s a massive month of overload, in our book.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t still be excited!  We’re especially looking forward to Fox’s mind-bending first season of Fringe, the fourth season of The CW’s cult-hit Supernatural (on blu-ray to boot!), Canadian sci-fi lite dramedy Being Erica‘s first season and, of course, the third season of NBC’s comedy giant 30 Rock.

In anticipation of the release of Fringe‘s first season on September 8th, they setup a cool website in which you can enter to win a visit to the show’s set in Vancouver, among other things.  Once you enter  you can watch a video about the difficulties of filming the episode The Ghost Network and then play a game which, if you answer correctly, gives you five extra entries into that set visit contest.  And here’s a little hint for our readers: you may wanna brush up on some episodes of ABC Family’s Greek for some help on the game.  Check out the site: Completethepattern.com

Pilot Review: Community

In 2009 Fall Season, 2009 Pilots, 30 Rock, Comedy, Community, Daily Show With Jon Stewart, Gilmore Girls, Greek, Law and Order SVU, Mad Men, My Name Is Earl, NBC, Parks and Recreation, Preview, Rules of Engagement, The Book of Daniel, The Office, The Soup on 08/19/2009 at 12:20 am

Community

You know that feeling you get from a good laugh?  That feel-good feeling, like your day just got a bit brighter and maybe everything isn’t so bad?  I kinda dig that feeling.  It’s hard to get that feeling for me – I’m a glass half empty type.  It’s a curse.  My burden.  It’s something I try to work on.

Certain TV shows tend to give me that feeling.  Witty, smart comedies, mostly.  30 Rock, Better Off Ted, The Office, all currently airing shows that spring to mind.  I’m sure you’ve probably guessed by now where this is headed.  Not exactly the master of unpredictable (or even readable) writing here.

I watched the pilot of Community, a new half hour sitcom set to air on NBC this fall.  As the episode ended, my first thought was, “Wow, this will go so great with The Office and 30 Rock on NBC.”  Take note there, because that’s probably the only time, in relation to the 2009 Fall season, that I will say I’m happy about something being on NBC.  For all it’s pitfalls and blunders, NBC has always been known, and still holds on to, the title for best comedic sitcoms in my book and gets a lot of credit for giving those comedies a chance to catch on.

The series revolves around Jeff Winger, played by The Soup‘s Joel McHale  The character lands somewhere right between a hustler, a player and a seemingly nice guy.  Even with those qualities, though, I somehow ended up routing for him to succeed.  He was a lawyer, until the state bar association realized his degree came via email attachment from Columbia the country, as opposed to Columbia the school.  That’s when he was sent on his way to Greendale Community College.

Once on campus we recognize many faces from around the TV world.  There’s folks from Mad Men, The Daily Show, The Book of Daniel, Greek, Gilmore Girls, Rules of Engagement and even the aforementioned 30 Rock.  Don’t get me wrong here – we’re not talking John Hamm or Tina Fey, but you’ll probably do a double take and have to check IMDB a time or two.

Law & Order: SVU Guest Star Update

In 2009 Fall Season, Law and Order SVU on 07/08/2009 at 3:31 pm


Ok, L&O nerds, here’s a small update to this previous post.

EW’s Michael Ausiello broke the news that Eric McCormack will be guest starring in episode two of Law & Order: SVU next season. Chances are you remember McCormack from either his days as gay BFF/roommate on Will & Grace or his one season run as ad-exec on TNT’s Trust Me.

As previously posted, Law & Order: SVU exec-producer Neal Baer promised an Emmy winning guest-star via his Twitter feed for episode two and an Oscar winner for episode three. Now that we know the Emmy winnder, who do you think will be the Oscar-vet?

Law & Order: SVU News Roundup

In 2009 Fall Season, Law and Order SVU, NBC, Prison Break on 06/30/2009 at 4:45 pm

Lot’s of news coming out of the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit camp the last few days. First off, what most already know, the show’s stars, Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay, will be returning for the 11th season. Apparently negotions were long, tough, and drawn out.
Word was out near a month ago that Stephanie March will returning as ADA Cabot but we’ve now learned she’ll fill the spot only for 10 episodes. Preceeding her run will be a four episode arc by TV-vet Christine Lahti. No word yet on who will fill the remaining nine episodes but TV Guide seems to think they plan on casting a male for the part – a complete departure from the show’s usual young hot female ADA’s.
For awhile now, Law & Order: Special Victim Unit has been well known for it’s guest stars. In the past Cynthia Nixon, Martha Plimpton and Leslie Caron have all won awards for their guest roles while Robin Williams and Marcia Gay Hardon were also nominated. Last season, SVU’s tenth, saw guest stars ranging from Ellen Burstyn and Cicely Tyson to Hillary Duff, Luke Perry and Sarah Gilbert…Among many many others.
Word came today that Prison Break‘s Wentworth Miller will be the first guest star of the year, playing a cop that saves a rape victim. Buddy TV is guessing, and they’re probably right, that the character won’t be a one-sided good guy cop.
For lot’s of guest star teasing, check out L&O:SVU executive producer Neal Baer’s Twitter feed. He’s promising an Emmy winner for episode two and an Oscar winner for episode three.
The 11th season of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit kicks off with Miller on Wednesday September 23rd at 9pm.

NBC Renews Law & Order: SVU

In Law and Order, Law and Order SVU, Law and Order: Criminal Intent, NBC, USA on 04/16/2009 at 1:23 am


Good news for Mr. Dick Wolf – NBC has renewed Law Order: SVU for it’s 11th season. Talks are still under way for the return of Chris Meloni and Mariska Hargitay. Word is they’re looking for a pay raise from their current $350,000 per episode. While the other two L&O franchises have weathered multiple cast changes popular opinion seems to be SVU couldn’t survive without the two. Perhaps those cast changes are why Law & Order: CI is now on USA and Law & Order sits on the bubble at the end of each season.

On that note, Law & Order: Criminal Intent returns this weekend on USA (which has been doing very well this year) and Variety also reported that NBC is still in talks to renew the original Law & Order for it’s 20th season. Word is, though, that it may be a shortened one with only about 16 episodes.
