    Organized Crime was not what I expected it to be. It's basically a one case miniseries. And if it gets renewed, they'll take on another bad guy in season 2.

    Not sure how that'll play with an audience that for 30 years is used to cases being resolved one way or another in 43 minutes.

    Where are you living that you can't watch? It's over the air and up on Peacock and Hulu the next day.

    Have not seen it yet, and I think its a good thing.
    Be pretty ridiculous if all organised crime was sorted in single episodes to be fair.

    Then that is my preference as arc like shows or continuing shows are my preference .....you would never guess I was a ds9 fan :hugegrin:

    I've had lousy luck with antennas in my house.

    Yeah, I'm gonna pay, what, 50 bucks a year to watch ONE SHOW? :lol:

    Yea that's a new spin on it. Didn't mind it. And Dylan McDermott played a good bad guy.

    Not thrilled with how both SVU and the new show handled Elliott and Olivia, character wise. The whole Kathy thinking that he cheated on her with Olivia makes no sense as she got along with her well. I remember him almost cheating, but it was with another woman and not Olivia.

    And the running off bit in the other show, hello Olivia, what do expect? He is busy working a case. It's not personal. (In regards to talking to her right away.) Wish the scene was done a bit differently though. Like him just letting her know he is busy with a case, he'll get back to her when he can.

    And I hated Olivia brushing him off during the snow scene. That bit screamed Warren Leight influence and so did the Kathy one imo.

    Yup. They are both on Peacock too free with ads.

    Oh, for fuck's sake, I know you're smarter than this. :rolleyes:

    Hulu will give you up to a one-month free trial, so at most you'd be out $5.99 for the last two weeks of OC. And there's other shows and movies on there to watch besides just that one. :rolleyes:

    Or, as Aragorn and Starbreaker both pointed out, you can watch them on NBC.com or Peacock for free with a shit-ton of ads.

    If you want to wait until the season is over and then binge it, Peacock has a seven-day trial and Hulu has a one month trial. And a longer free trial offer might pop up before then.

    Also, one streaming service subscription is pretty damn cheap, especially if you compare it to being locked in for x amount of months subscribing to cable.

    Guess that's why we're not getting another L&O: True Crime series.

    You live in Omaha proper, right? Omaha's metro population is like four times the size that of Madison, Wisconsin, where I live, and I live in a semi-rural area of the city, surrounded by forestry, and I guarantee you that the broadcast towers in Omaha are a hell of a lot more powerful than the ones here in south-central Wisconsin. I use a $12 set of rabbit ears that I bought from Radio Shack like eight or nine years ago, and I get almost every broadcast channel in the area without any interference. I'm thinking your issue isn't the antenna. ;)

    Or just wait for the series to run its first season and then use a free month-long trial of Hulu or Peacock to burn through the eight episodes? Really, 90 seconds' worth of ads a few times in an hour isn't exactly a huge burden to bear.

    True Crime didn't get another season because A) no one watched it and B) Ryan Murphy did the concept better with American Crime Story.

    watched the most recent svu episode where stabler's wife dies.
    So is this a 2 parter or does it carry over now instead to the new law and order ?

    The reason I ask is I was hoping to binge watch the new one separately

    "Return of the Prodigal Son," the SVU episode, feeds directly into the pilot episode of Organized Crime, "What Happens in Puglia." They aren't quite a two-parter, but the prior informs the latter very much.

    The problem is 1) my TV is in the basement, and 2) if I tried to put the antenna on the outside of the house, it would get knocked off in the next thunder/windstorm.

    In any case, OC made the iTunes Store after all, so the question is moot. :lol:

    cheers.

    As said, I will let the episodes build up as so I may binge watch it.
    I dont think I could tolerate drip feeding an episode a week, and thats another thing I notice with american shows, they often stop for weeks in the middle of a season.

    After a decade of building the Benson character as this fearless, powerful woman, the minute Stabler returns, she goes right back to letting him pull his old shenanigans and acting all weepy. Benson was right back to the weak junior partner. She didn't meet him as an equal and frankly, it's a bad look on the Law & Order franchise.
