Summary of Season 1 (1990) - 6 discs

Dick Wolf's groundbreaking procedural drama takes a two-part approach to justice: Detectives Max Greevey (George Dzundza) and Mike Logan (Chris Noth) of Manhattan's fictional 27th Precinct ferret out the perpetrators, then turn the case over to the district attorney's office, where Ben Stone (Michael Moriarty), Paul Robinette (Richard Brooks) and Adam Schiff (Steven Hill) take the reins. Dann Florek co-stars as Capt. Donald Cragen.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the Law & Order franchise isn't designed for kids. The first half of each hour-long episode focuses on a violent crime, and the second half centers on the ensuing courtroom drama -- which may bore more action-oriented viewers.

Sexual Content

No sex is shown, but sometimes the crimes involve sexual acts.


Plenty of shooting, guns, blood, and bodies, though not as graphic as on forensic shows like CSI.


A few spicy words, but otherwise tamish.

Social Behavior

The series offers a clear distinction between good and bad, according to the police/legal system. It highlights America's sophisticated legal system, and the sometimes tenuous relationship that exists between each of its agencies.
