Everyone would watch the ‘Law & Order Channel’

My wife has a frequent lament when we can’t find anything to watch on television, something that makes way too much sense not to see come to fruition in an age when channels are devoted to golf, cooking, gardens and fishing.

“Law & Order” in any of its forms is one of those shows that is always enjoyable, even if you’ve seen it a hundred times and if you come in on the middle of the show; I’ve watched reruns of the show since college, and our fallback program at home is a “Special Victims Unit” box set we’re working through.

So, my wife said, why isn’t there a channel devoted solely to “Law & Order?”

I can’t think of a good reason why not.

Who wouldn’t stop on this channel when surfing by? Who wouldn’t add this channel to their favorites, keeping it in mind as something to bail them out during a viewing emergency when nothing else good is on?

You could rotate series, run blocks, have “season marathons” – the options are plentiful. And since all three series are still in production, there’s no shortage of material.

Have you seen the garbage on Nick at Nite these days? They’re running “Family Matters,” for goodness sake! If people watch Urkel, surely they’ll watch Brisco and Green bust some bad guys!

I don’t know how to make this happen. But I know it needs to happen.

  1. I would totally support that idea. I mean not just solely the 3 shows that are currently on the air too. There’s also the short lived shows: “Law & Order: Trial By Jury”, “Conviction”, plus the new British adaptation: “Law & Order: UK” or even the French adaptation: “Paris enquêtes criminelles”; and if we were feeling bored of watching scripted drama, we could delve right into the reality series “Law & Order: Crime & Punishment”. We would seriously never run out of things to watch. Plus I do think having the same theme song would drive us crazy after a while, hahaha.
