Law & Order: Organized Crime

Any DLers watching? Just finished the second episode and I’m surprised that I actually like it.

R2 you prefer the standard L&O format where each case gets solved at the end of every episode?

Going by these tumbleweeds in here, I guess this thing might be headed for cancellation.

Dylan was on Kelly and Ryan this morning. It's not the L&O format of Crime, Cops Find Perp, Trial. This will be a a running drama. Will continue to watch.

I would watch if all three gents in OP's pic had a hardcore XXX threeway that ran the entire episode, and the entire season. I have my standards.

Law & Order: Los Angeles was more interesting than this show.

I watched for about ten minutes and all I saw was terrible acting. Not that the SVU cast is/was talented, but the female lead is so awful that the show is unwatchable.

The cop, R12.

Yeah I don’t like her either. I don’t really like any of the characters for that matter. The only good one was Chazz Palminteri and they promptly killed him off.

Wish they’d just bring Law & Order back.

I think they're trying really hard to keep the same tough cop memes going and I don't think it's sitting well in the George Floyd era.

It certainly isn't with me.

I realize that though I really enjoy Meloni, I've never liked this character.

I'm still watching but I can see myself tuning out soon.

Watching Chris Meloni in anything never feels like a hard day at the office.

by Anonymousreply 27April 17, 2021 8:42 PM

I was expecting the traditional format. It’s an extended drama apparently, which is not necessarily bad, but the squad room is like a direct copy of NCIS down to the bored, insufferable goth computer-whiz chick.

The actors are not well-cast for their roles, nor are the characters appealing. I get that Stabler is supposed to be a fish out of water in the age of “new policing,” but he just does click with them.

Meloni has a few thirst-trap scenes for his gay fans, but I’d rather have each episode tied up by the end. It’s a smarter move if the story isn’t well written.

I watched the first episode and when I realized what it was, I was going to give up on it. I HATE crime dramas that never conclude, like "The Blacklist."

If it's only an 8 episode series, then maybe I'll go back.

The thing I have the hardest time with is Dylan McDermott as a bad guy.

[QUOTE] Meloni has a few thirst-trap scenes for his gay fans, but I’d rather have each episode tied up by the end. It’s a smarter move if the story isn’t well written.

Really though, that would be so unrealistic. How can a show about organized crime investigations have everything neatly wrapped up by the end of the episode? Look at the antagonist and the type of stuff he does—racketeering within a multi-layer organization that’s partially a legitimate business. How could Stabler put him behind bars in 45 minutes? We should’ve known from the title that it would have to be different.

When you watch other Law & Orders, there’s usually a syndicate boss who’s a recurring character. The cops know who he is and what he does. Maybe he did a few years in prison and now he’s back on the street, sitting there at a restaurant table surrounded by goons when the detectives come to question him about a new crime. We’re made to believe this is fucked up but realistic, and that’s the truth. Cause it can take forever to bring these men down.

by Anonymousreply 35April 17, 2021 9:14 PM

This won't be like The Blacklist at all which I'm convinced is completely improvised at this point because the scripts are so ridiculous. But it can't be a standard procedural either. I like it thus far because it's perfectly cast.

by Anonymousreply 36April 17, 2021 9:21 PM

I think this is a network attempt to grab the attention of a chunk of the audience who made Italian organized crime themed shows such as "Gomorrah" or "Suburra" Netflix hits.

Elliot just told Oleebia that he loves her in front of co-workers on Organized Crime. But he's acting weird and I'm finding the plot hard to follow.

I love it. It's quite low budget, though. Stabler's spray on hair is horrific.

The vibe they seem to be going with at the police station is The Wire Season 1 with Stabler as McNulty and his boss Bell as Kima.

by Anonymousreply 42May 24, 2021 3:45 PM

I'm sticking with it, I like the characters, and the plot is moving at a reasonable pace. The death at the end of last week's episode was sad, I thought that was one of the better characters. High stakes though.

Interesting side plots as well though, like the female lead's family stuff. Especially after the police assaulted her nephew, now her sister is suing the NYPD. Awkward!

R21 I had to look up that name & now that I see her previous credits (Empire, The L Word) that makes total sense. It does seem like there is a sort of soapy, camp energy running through this show. The face-to-face meetings between Stabler and Wheatley are dripping with it.

R23 I kinda thought the same thing too at first. When I found out about it I was reluctant to watch a cop show in the Post-George Floyd era. I am a huge fan of Chris Meloni's as I've seen hum in many things, but I agree that his character on SVU was problematic which added to my hesitancy.

However, I was pleasantly surprised when I watched Organized crime. It was fast pace, lots of stuff happening at once. The storyline was interesting and current as it pulled in the coronavirus vaccines. I loved that they did it as a crossover by adding Olivia Benson to the mix. They knew that the fans wanted to see these two together again.

I felt that the production was very sensitive to the racial reckoning of 2020. They leaned into it with the amazing Chaz Palminteri as an unrepentant racist (hated his character but he did a great job with his role - as always). You can also see production's awareness of the climate with the writing and in the diverse casting and storyline. They gave Meloni a Black female partner and a Black love interest. They also surrounded Dylan (the other male lead) with a Black family. Somebody took a temperature check. I think they got it right without being too obvious or sacrificing the story.

Law and Order franchise has a HUGE Black base. They are well aware of this and I like that the show took that into account in this 2021 police drama.

I loved it and can't wait for season 2.

by Anonymousreply 59July 12, 2021 6:05 PM

It reminded me a little of The Wire season 1.

Before you jump down my throat I’m not saying it’s as good as The Wire. But the disparate police getting together to form a new team, the trouble they had with other departments, the how crime families and race and policing intersect all seemed a nod to those early episodes. Even Stabler’a boss seemed an SVU version of Kima.

I hoped there would be more episodes but I appreciate that 8 episodes on one storyline is huge for the slaw Order universe - and any more would have dragged it out.

To be fair, no man is gonna have the same hair at 50 they had when they were 30. And most men over 40 don't have a full head of hair anymore.

While combovers have been around forever, Trump reminded the world that once middle-aged men start combing their hair in weird ways they're doing it to hide some shit. [BTW Trump now wears a full wig or weave]

Beware of weird styling.
