"As much as we may have been looking forward to the return of Law & Order after a 10-year hiatus, this season of the long-running series has been a failure," says Dustin Rowles. "The series has forgotten what we loved about it — the staid predictability, the novel legal theories, the detached characters — and instead leaned too hard into the 'ripped from the headlines' aspect. That element of the series went off the deep end in this week’s episode, which somehow managed to combine Anna Delvey and the goddamn Sackler family into one episode. How, you might ask? By arresting a murderer in the first half and then trying a completely separate murder case in the latter half."
