And keep it character-proof. That's what I like about L&O: its relative lack of characterization. TV shows these days have too much character. Too much whiny emo angst. A show that is not at all concerned with characters - that's a breath of fresh air. I've always viewed L&O as the Mr. Spock of tv shows.
Hear hear! I second the opinion that too much of contemporary television is filled with angsty or otherwise offbeat characters. Sometimes we just want a straight-up, no-frills, episodic story that's not weighed down with seasons-long story arcs or character development, and the original L&O serves that beautifully. Here's hoping LOLA continues that tradition.
