As I said in the thread about the revival, I don't know how I feel. While the original should have outlasted SVU and should not have been axed for the failure that was Law & Order: Los Angeles, it has been over a decade since this last aired.
And many of the existing cast members are now on other shows. And, frankly, the current writing on Dick Wolf shows does not exactly inspire confidence in me that the revival will not end up schitting on the original. And some, let's be honest, are too old now. (I adore Sam Waterston, but the man is over 80 now.) That means new blood, and casting is very hit or miss.
Sometimes, things are best left alone. (But I will watch the first episode to gauge an opinion should it truly come to pass.)
Same. This'll either succeed or fail. I feel like Organized Crime has genuinely succeeded because it is revolved around Christopher Meloni's Elliott Stabler. I don't know if the flagship can do the same.
THIS! Maybe it'll happen eventually, but they really dropped the ball on a reversal of situations when Sonny returned to see Jason and Carly about to do it. They could have done SO much with the drama the angst, the revisionist history. But they just dropped the ball. Either the writers truly don't know the history of the show and write as they go, or someone controlling things behind the scenes really doesn't like drama. Oddly.
