Law and Order: Adjourned

Law and Order: Adjourned

After two decades, NBC cancelled the TV series “Law & Order.” The death sentence was pronounced by Judge Nielsen; the show’s demise was attributed to low ratings. The series is survived by its spin-offs, “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” “Law & Order: Overtime Parking Squad” and the infant “Law & Order: Los Angeles.” The original program will no doubt live on in syndication and the hearts of fans.

Best quote:

“Law & Order must have been canceled because there are no print publications left from which to rip headlines. –@pourmecoffee via FishbowlDC.

    Hahaha, Overtime Parking Squad, that’s funny!

    As homage to the show we made the latest episode of our animated web series Lunki and Sika in “Law and Order”-style!
