Briscoe and Green catch three murder cases and one kidnapping on the same day, and one murder is tied to a fourth murder which happened ten years ago. Each case apparently involves domestic disputes ...
Forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan and cocky F.B.I. Special Agent Seeley Booth build a team to investigate murders. Quite often, there isn't more to examine than rotten flesh or mere bones.
The cases of the F.B.I. Behavioral Analysis Unit (B.A.U.), an elite group of profilers who analyze the nation's most dangerous serial killers and individual heinous crimes in an effort to anticipate their next moves before they strike again.
Matthew Gray Gubler,
The show follows a crime, ususally adapted from current headlines, from two separate vantage points. The first half of the show concentrates on the investigation of the crime by the police, the second half follows the prosecution of the crime in court.Written by
With the airing of its twentieth season, beginning September 25, 2009, this show tied the record held by Gunsmoke (1955) for the longest running prime-time drama series on U.S. television. However, it was announced in May 2010 that the series was not renewed for the 2010-2011 season. This longevity record was tied by its spin-off Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999) in September 2018. See more »
Some of the suspected criminals are shown fleeing or attempting to flee prosecution, which is not the "norm." The ones that attempt to flee do so in manners which ensure that they will be caught as some episodes have had people attempting to leave on buses from The Port Authority when there are several dozen areas around the city where a bus or train can be caught that will take you out of NYC.

To be honest, I didn't become a real fan of the series until Jerry Orbach (Detective Briscoe)and Sam Waterston(EADA McCoy)came into the picture. This is when the series starts to pick up steam. Watching the show, you can't help but laugh at Briscoe's remarks or feel the passion of McCoy. Both of these men want justice, and will do everything within limits to bring the wrongdoers to justice. What I really like about the show is the wonderful twists and turns that they throw to the audience, as well as the "ripped from the headlines" episodes. Even though you have 2 more in the "Law And Order" franchise, the original is STILL the best!
