Law & Order's 11th season begins with Nora Lewin (Dianne Wiest) taking over as interim D.A. until an official replacement for Adam Schiff can be elected. Lewin's first case concerns a disabled youngster who died of smoke asphyxiation in an apartment fire. Suspects include the kid's parents and one of their neighbors, a person with a history of being in close proximity of suspicious blazes. Astonishingly, A.D.A. Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston), who normally goes for the jugular, believes that "the penalties are too severe" this time around.

An extremely likely suspect is arrested after a woman is found murdered in a subway car. Unfortunately, he may be able to beat the rap if it is proven that, due to budget cutbacks, he wasn't provided proper medication in prison. This Law & Order episode provides an interesting contrast to earlier plot lines in which the right of mentally disturbed people not to submit to treatment was the crux of the case.

The murder of a young violinist is at the center of this episode. The detectives have quite a time choosing a likely suspect, since several of the dead woman's colleagues clearly resented her quick rise to fame. The outcome boils down to a war of wills between D.A. Lewin (Dianne Weist) and an antagonistic judge (Ron McLarty), who seems to have a personal grudge against A.D.A. McCoy (Sam Waterston).

A prisoner is murdered while still behind bars. At first, it seems to be an open-and-shut case, with detectives Briscoe (Jerry Orbach) and Green (Jesse L. Martin) almost immediately collaring the likeliest suspect. But did the perpetrator act on his own volition, or was he merely following orders -- orders that may have been issued from outside prison walls?

The detectives investigate when the co-owner of a clothing store is murdered. The chief suspect heads to Israel; to avoid extradition, he invokes the "Law of Return," which decrees that every Jew on earth is automatically a citizen of Israel. To crack this case, the DA's office must enter into a tense series of conferences with an impartial group of New York rabbis.

Actor-director Clarence Williams III guest stars as Lateef Miller, a former member of the militant Black Panther party. A prominent 1960s activist, Miller again makes headlines when he is accused of murdering a white police detective. Media coverage of the subsequent trial serves as a forum for the personal attacks leveled by Miller against arresting detective Eddie Green (Jesse L. Martin).

A certain high-profile murder which peripherally involved a well-connected political family was the obvious inspiration for this episode. Under orders from their higher-ups, Briscoe (Jerry Orbach) and Green (Jesse L. Martin) reopen a 20-year-old murder investigation. The principal suspect at the time was the spoiled teenaged son of a powerful U.S. ambassador (Remak Ramsay). The question: Considering the age of the suspect when the killing occurred, should he be tried in juvenile court even though he is now well into adulthood?

Once again, Law & Order relies upon the headlines for story material. On this occasion, the detectives investigate the brutal murder of a school-hockey coach. Once the most likely suspect has been apprehended, the man tries to beat the rap by claiming to be suffering from an exotic mental condition known as "sports rage." Originally slated to air on December 13, 2000, this episode was bumped forward to December 20.

Four people are cold-bloodedly killed in a jewelry store. The suspect, a most charming and persuasive young man, insists upon representing himself in course. Thanks to his emotional display of regret and contrition, the accused murderer may well be able to sway the jury -- or at least one of the jurors, a woman who cannot take her eyes off the man.

A laboratory technician is murdered and 17 infected research monkeys are "liberated." The detectives are certain that a group of militant animal-rights activists is responsible. But as so often happens on Law & Order, a grasp of the "obvious" means little when people lie or cover up. This episode is also known as "Curious George."

Critic Reviews for Law & Order Season 11

All Critics (1) | Top Critics (1)

The series is so good at cementing its regulars in our minds that, for example, it's hard to imagine that L&O detective Jerry Orbach was once an esteemed Broadway song-and-dance man.
