Critics Consensus

Law & Order: Los Angeles brings its tried and true formula to the West Coast, and while it's unlikely to draw new viewers, this spinoff should please fans of the original.

Such ambitions help to excuse courtroom scenes so ridiculous that they force millions of viewers to annoy the tens of millions of neighbors who can hear them blurting "objection" at the screen.

Think of Law & Order: Los Angeles as the final frantic thrashing and splashing of a drowning man. NBC's trademark cops-and-courts franchise is going under, and there's no life preserver in sight.

Like anyone who switches coasts, LOLA may need a little time to settle in.

It's literally warmed-over Law & Order, but that doesn't mean it's unappealing.

LOLA for its part shows signs of getting that old Law & Order moxie back.

You don't get to the age of 20 in prime time by being a dummy, and there are few shrewder prime-time players than Dick Wolf, the guy who created the Law & Order franchise.

While the cast and setting are both first-rate, it looks like there's going to be a bit of a learning curve as the showrunners learn to employ both to their fullest potential.

It provides a sense of satisfaction and comfort that the series will end the same way it was introduced to the audience.

Consider version 2.0 of Law & Order: Los Angeles a step in the right direction with some room left for improvement.

Apr 11, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The show is well written, but it lacks some of the grittiiness that fans have come to expect from the franchise.

Audience Reviews for Law & Order: LA: Season 1

    Like most who have probably reviewed this show didn't last past the first few episodes. If you stick it out, and Love the L&O scheme you will love this group also. I am @episode 7, and this show just got me; like all the others before it takes a few to get hooked. Too bad they didn't give it a chance, wish there were a few more seasons to binge on.
