Trivia:
Originally each season was going to be shown as 13 complete episodes but this was later changed to blocks of 7 and 6 episodes per series to spread out over the year because the production was finding it difficult filming on the streets of London. However to make up for the low number of episodes North American countries like USA and Canada air the series in the original block of 13 episodes.See more »

Wonderful cast... poor writing., 15 August 2011
Author: tadaia from United States

As an American I've been a fan of the original since it's beginnings. As soon as I had access to watch the British version I watched seasons 1 and 2 back to back. My first impression was one of admiration for the casting. Frankly I'm not so bothered that the characters are based on like types of the original. What did unnerve me was how poorly the show seemed to be written in comparison. It's really neither compelling or entertaining.

I'm not a police officer or a lawyer but I've seen my share of shows centered around such characters. The writing of L&O UK seems almost embarrassingly simplistic and predictable. As well, does the prosecutor (who should be one of the show's champions) ever give the audience the satisfaction of winning a good case... other than the ones he probably shouldn't win? It's almost laughable and the show seems oddly negative and depressing in that respect. My other half lost interest in the 2nd season, and now only sticks a head in the room to giggle and ask if Steele has actually won a decent case yet. Perhaps it is true to English law, but if so I'd hate to live in a society where the only "victims" that seem to get justice are the criminals that claim to have been "victimized".

One of the things that's always made the original L&O great is that Jack is not only dogged and highly principled, he is brilliant! The character James Steel has the first two qualities but is sorely lacking in the third. Frankly I'm amazed that he still has a job.

I'll continue to watch for a while with hope that the writing will improve. If not perhaps I'll just stick with the original going forward.
