Did You Know?


Michael Moriarty, the man who played Ben Stone, left Law & Order (1990) out of general principle. At the time, former US Attorney General Janet Reno said shows like Law & Order glamorized violence. Moriarty felt the show was unfairly targeted due to its popularity. He then fled to Canada, for self-imposed exile, obtained Canadian citizenship, and tried to start a political party modeled on the American Republican party ideals. See more »

Maggie Householder: We don't have a car.

Morality ain't so easy
21 February 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This episode marks the farewell appearance of Raul Esparza as the sex crimes ADA and he leaves with quite a sendoff. As Esparza himself remarks that when he came to sex crimes he was at a moral certainty. Years on the job in sex crimes have certainly blunted his moral certainty.

The episode here concerns a baby who has a degenerative disease. The baby is that of Abigail Hawk's and she and her husband are deeply divided over what to do. What Esparza does is remove the bone of contention and put himself in one real jackpot.

Also returning to the series is Sam Waterston as DA Jack McCoy and one of his favorite adversaries from the Law And Order prime series Peter Jacobson as Randolph Dworkin. Jacobson is Esparza's defense attorney.

And some more Law And Order history is revisited with the debut of Philip Winchester as the son of ADA Ben Stone from back in the neolithic days of the franchise. I doubt however you will see Michael Moriarty making a return as he left on a sour note. But one never knows.

I can't say any more about this one, but it is a harrowing gut wrenching episode and all the people involved go through one ordeal.
