Law & Order: UK

In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups. The police who investigate crime, and the Crown Prosecutors who prosecute the offenders. These are their stories.

The Crown Prosecutors? What parallel universe is this? Just like Mr. Spock’s beard, the attire – in this case wigs and robes – gives you a clue that you aren’t in New York any longer.

Law & Order: UK had its U.S.debut last night on BBC America. If Ben Stone was your favorite prosecutor – and you are a bit of an Anglophile – this series is for you. The scripts were adapted from shows from the earlier seasons of Law & Order.

The show moves to its regular Friday night slot this week. If BBC America isn’t your television subscription package, the DVD of season 1 will be released October 26, 2010. And you can already put it in your Netflix queue.
