They had JO talking about Lennie, and Tom Fontana said that Lennie is the 'quintessential New Yorker'. JO said that police officers would come up to him and tell him thanks for making them look good.
I miss Lennie. And Jerry.

Ms. Parisse, who is 28 (and was 14 when "Law & Order" began),
Heh. I was in middle school when L&O debuted, and-
I grow old... I grow old... I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled...

On Judy Gold's 2004 album "Judith's Roommate Had A Baby", Gold references L&O costume designer Jennifer von Mayrhauser, who called her to get her sizes when Gold guested on the show a couple of years ago (she was also on SVU). Well...not so much "referenced" her as "lampooned" her. Judy Gold is 6'3'', weighs 180, and has size 12 feet. I can understand wardrobe not having typical women's clothing in her size, but apparently Jennifer's obvious hesitation on the phone and subsequent request that Judy bring some of her costume from home were somewhat displeasing.

MI's first episode was originally going to be on April 27th. The schedule has been changed and his episode is this coming Wednesday (20th).
The "........Lesbian?" episode has been moved from the 20th to the 23rd (Sat).

Did anyone catch Family Guy on Sunday? I didn't, I was watching CI. But the opening of Law & Order was spoofed on it, complete with a Steve Zirnkilton narration, a doink-doink, and the original theme music from the first three seasons of the show. Someone at the L&O community on LiveJournal snagged a copy of the episode and clipped the opening out for us. It was very funny, if just for the accuracy of it. I saved a copy to my hard drive in case the file disappears from YouSendIt.
Here is the post on LJ with the links.

That was laugh-out-loud hilarious! Thanks for posting it. Is "Family Guy" always that funny?
[OT] Yes, it's quite funny. It's very odd, twisted humor, I believe, but I like it, probably because I'm from Rhode Island. Chris goes to Buddy Cianci Jr. High, which is just plain hilarious if you're from this backwoods little state. [/OT] Another FG/L&O connection: Sam Waterston played a psychiatrist for a brief scene in another episode. I wouldn't have known it was him if it didn't look so much like him.

I watched the Tonys last night. How great was it that Jesse L. Martin sang "Razzle Dazzle" right after JO's picture went up? He was so good. I just wish they would have done more of a tribute. Dude, this guy was in how many Broadway shows, and nominated for how many Tonys and you give him (and all the others who have died) one song that's rushed for a commercial break? Geez.
Total agreement! Hell, a list I'm on thought JO wasn't even mentioned because the director cut too fast from the pics to Jesse, like they shoved JLM out on stage and told him to hit it fast, because God forbid they delay another tribute to plays in which you couldn't figure out a thing. Plus the audience didn't applaud once, kind of like they were stunned it was going on. On and on about Arthur Miller but not a word about JO or Brando or Chris Reeve? Chita Rivera screwed up whatever she was saying about Fred Ebb and I think Cy Coleman. Lousy work for a group that, y'know, is supposed to be USED to lbeing live.

I did fall in love with Jesse L. Martin just a little bit more.
Chita Rivera mentioned John Kander with Fred Ebb, because you basically get used to saying "Kander and Ebb" together. John Kander is quite alive.

Ah, always knocking the eyebrows. ;)
Sam Waterston's ostrich looks of astonishment whenever he's overruled.

I don't know what to think about this news. Overmyer is a playwright of some note, and he wrote many excellent episodes of Homicide, but he somehow never managed to make Southerlyn an interesting character, and on his watch, the headline-ripping has gone from being a provocative tactic for creating stories to a mechanical, Frankensteinian commingling of recent news stories ("What if Bernard Kerik was having an affair with Jenna Jameson?"). Despite his most recent credit, the asinine Blind Justice, Wootton is also a strong writer, having won-deservedly, in my view-an Emmys for his work on Blue. I'm interested to see what change, if any, there is in the general drift of the writing. Anybody else?

I was watching "Fixed" earlier tonight. That's the season 15 episode where Lowenstein is paroled and his social worker kills him. Great episode, except for Branch and the bot. Anyway, remember how we were busing on the producers for listing Cragen as "Lt. Donald Cragen" in the opening credits? Well, they changed it to "Captain". Proof they read message boards, or follow fan/critical reaction to the show? (I doubt they got letters on the subject, not even I'm that much of a fan).
And if that's the case, why not do something about the sloppy writing and inconsisten characterisation?
