Why Law and Order got cancelled
24 April 2013 | by (Valencia, Spain) – See all my reviews

The great Jerry Orbach left the show due to cancer, and passed away. He was replaced by a bunch of awful actors (Fontana, Android Govich, etc.), ending with Jeremy Sisto. I have yet to see Jeremy Sisto act. I have seen him as a supporting player in a few movies, and he is a total zero. Sisto is one of those actors that just shows up and plays himself. Same character in every performance. On Law and Order, he is totally clueless. It looks like he has no idea what the words "investigation," and "detective" mean. He is just standing around, reading his lines.

Now, in this episode, the awesome Jesse L. Martin relapses back to gambling, and he is written out of the series. What an anti-climatic end to such a great character. Why not have him get promoted to Captain at another precinct? Why does the black detective have to relapse? Orbach and Cragen never did.

Even worse, the bottom line is that Jesse L. Martin is being traded in for Anthony Anderson, the buffoon. Anthony Anderson is less than a one- dimensional actor. If it is possible to be non-dimensional, that is what Anthony Anderson is. He has no grit, no smarts, no personality, and nothing special going for him. He is the black version of Jeremy Sisto or Milena Govich.

In effect, the detective force went from having two great actors (Orbach and Martin), to having two awful, one-dimensional line readers.
