The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

If anyone ever needed proof that you can ruin a good thing, tune into the new season of Law and Order and be amazed. Now that Jerry Orbach has left, pending his new spinoff in January, they've replaced him with Dennis Farina, who from what I have seen, couldn't act himself out of a cardboard box. Maybe I'm being a bit harsh, or maybe it's the writing, but after giving him a chance (3 entirely too long episodes) I'm left unimpressed. I don't understand why they think they have to have the old cop/young cop dynamic. Just get me someone who doesn't make me cringe every time he's on screen and I'll try not to forego your show for CSI New York.
