I have been watching this since it started. I am trying to determine if this show has hired writers, since every show that I have seen is nearly an exact duplicate of original Law and Order shows. The plots and results of these shows are IDENTICAL. They have made some minor changes to take in to account the English way. I was suprised, I actually expected something better. The cast is good, but I wonder why they can't write their own material. Must be the CHEAP way. I have stopped watching, if I want to see these shows, I'll watch the original.
