New television mystery series to be released this week on DVD:
Law & Order, the complete fifth season, starring Sam Waterston as Assistant District Attorney Jack McCoy and Jerry Orbach as Detective Lennie Briscoe. This season also marked the departure of Chris Noth as Detective Mike Logan.
Law & Order began its 17th season in the fall of 2006 making it the longest running crime series and the second longest running drama series in the history of broadcast television. (Gunsmoke ran for 20 years.)
Each episode follows a crime, usually 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.
The 5th season ran for 23 episodes during the 1994/1995 television season on NBC. 5 discs are included with the DVD set.
