Why five stars? I'm a Law and Order fanatic, addicted to all of their variations, and this version extracted some of the concept's best ideas: Set the issue at the start, investigate. I wish there were more court time, but still, this version is excellent: focused, the classic "Martian" program: no family nonsense, nothing unrelated to define the problem, investigate toward the perpetrator, move to closure. Ball to the 45, the 30, the 10, and through the posts, just get the ball down the field. The sound is even better than all the others - they all want to have a droning musical note or chord layered in the background too much of the time, but here, everyone is easy to hear, and you don't have the silliness of L & O Season 1 with Logan's Miami Vice behavior or Jack's emotional outbursts. I think that's what killed this series: It was probably opposite flashy car crash - weepy PM soap combos that fed appetites for drama over substance. I'd never heard of it, then once I saw Episode 1, I just kept on ordering one after the other in a marathon.
