Trivia Towards the end of the fifth season, executive producer Dick Wolf decided not to renew Chris Noth's contract, citing that the interaction between Logan and the similarly jaded Briscoe (Jerry Orbach) lacked enough dramatic contrast. Viewers and critics were shocked at the dismissal of the most popular and only original remaining cast member at that time. Years later, Noth convinced Wolf to produce Exiled (1998) to wrap up the story of Mike Logan, which Noth felt had been prematurely extinguished on the show. Noth returned again to revive the character for two seasons of Law & Order: Criminal Intent (2001). See more »
Goofs In a few episodes of the series the senior detective (usually Lenny Briscoe) will approach a drug dealer whom they know will have information valuable to their case, but the dealer will usually play dumb so Briscoe and his partner will frisk the dealer and find drugs, the cuffs come out and the dealer will spill his guts. This action is called the squeeze and the way it's done is illegal. The proper procedure is that after finding the drugs the police are meant to arrest the dealer and bring him to the D.A.'s office for a plea-for-information deal. As only the D.A.s have the authority to put the squeeze on as they will need proof of evidence in case the dealer's testimony is needed in a court of law. See more »

Quotes [Opening narration]
Narrator: In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: the police, who investigate crime; and the district attorneys, who prosecute the offenders. These are their stories.
