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 ...
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
Lorraine Toussaint played defense attorney Shambala Green opposite prosecutor Ben Stone (Michael Moriarty) in six episodes of Law & Order (1990) from 1990 to 1994. In a 1998 interview, Toussaint said that she and Moriarty got along so well, and had such potent onscreen chemistry together, that Moriarty asked producer Dick Wolf to develop a love interest story arc for the two characters. This idea was rejected. Moriarty left "Law & Order" after its fourth season, and Toussaint would play Shambala Green only twice more: in a 2003 episode of "L&O", and in a 2016 episode of the Dick Wolf-produced series Chicago P.D. (2014). See more »

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!
