11 Great '[TV Show] in 60 Seconds' Videos

by Ryan McKee, posted Jan 29th 2011 2:00PM
Watching Landline TV's 'Dexter' in 60 Seconds' video reminded us how much we enjoy the 'In 60 Seconds' format.

The phenomenon really took off on YouTube with a number of movie plots edited down to one minute. Full television series aren't as simple to cut down with so many characters and story arcs each season. However, there are some excellent ones out there and we unearthed 11 of the best.

The tone of the videos vary greatly -- some are meant to be informative, others humorous. They are created from actual clips, or re-enactments, or animation, or even feline theatre. A few focus on a specific character, or season, and some portray the show's broader themes. You'll enjoy all of them, and leave a little more educated.

Shohregh AghdashlooGood guys aren't always that good, as we've discovered many times over on 'Law & Order: SVU.' And on tonight's new episode, 'Dirty' (10PM ET, NBC), Shohreh Aghdashloo plays a detective who might not be what she seems.

But during the investigation, Benson (Mariska Hargitay) uncovers Ferguson had a suspicious past -- and that Qadri might be involved, as well.

In this exclusive behind-the-scenes clip, Aghdashloo talks about preparing for the role. Plus, guest actor Doug Drucker shows off his body tattoos, which producers must get cleared before filming.

Law and Order Los angelesLooks like justice is on hold in Hollywood. In a press release, NBC announced it is postponing the Feb. 8 return of 'Law & Order: Los Angeles.'

The shelving comes on the heels of major shake-ups to the cast, including the departure of star Skeet Ulrich. The show is now on hold indefinitely.

The postponement produced ripple effects across NBC's schedule. 'Parenthood,' which had been set to move to Mondays on March 1, will stay in its Tuesday 10PM timeslot for the rest of the season.

'America's Next Great Restaurant' will now premiere on Sun., March 6 at 8PM ET. And 'The Marriage Ref,' which was scheduled to return for a second season at that time, is also on hold until a later date.

'Law & Order: Los Angeles' Cast Changes Confirmed

Alfred Molina Terrence HowardAs we reported earlier, 'Law & Order: Los Angeles' is undergoing a cast shake-up after a slow start this fall, with stars Skeet Ulrich, Reginal Hall and Megan Boone departing the show.

Creator Dick Wolf has now revealed his plan to revamp the new spin-off series. After Ulrich departs in episode 14 (likely to air sometime in March), Alfred Molina's D.D.A. Ricardo Morales will return to his former job as a detective and team up with Corey Stoll's Det. TJ Jaruszalski. Meanwhile, Terrence Howard's D.D.A Jonah Dekker now will be the lead prosecutor.

Molina and Howard previously traded off episodes; both will now appear every week.

"We have the fortune of two world class actors on 'LOLA,' and it was frustrating to have one on the bench every week. It would be like having Peyton Manning and Tom Brady as your quarterbacks, playing alternate games," Wolf said in the statement.

'Law and Order: SVU' Preview: Ripped From Twitter

Ice T, Law and Order SVU 'Law & Order: SVU' returns with two new episodes tonight (9PM ET, NBC), one of which is not just ripped from the headlines -- but ripped from star Ice T's Twitter.

Ice T told us in November that the show planned to write an episode around a Twitter war he was involved in over the sale of a book called 'The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure.' During a recent conference call with reporters, executive producer Neal Baer said, "I rewrote a scene for Ice-T to take that position, or Fin to take that position, which actually reflects his own point of view that he says something like, 'I got to tell you that I'm all for the First Amendment, but not when it lets perverts do stuff like this.'"

Taryn Manning guest stars in the episode, 'Possessed,' which is the second of tonight's episodes.

Goodbye to All That: A Final Farewell to '24,' 'Law & Order' and 'Lost'

by Ryan McGee, posted Dec 21st 2010 2:00PM
Law & OrderCountdown to Festivus on Dec. 23: On the third day of Festivus, TV gave to us ... three longtime shows that bid farewell.

2010 saw the premature end of many series. 'Terriers', 'Rubicon', 'Party Down', 'Better Off Ted' and a host of other programs went to that DVR box in the sky long before many of their fans were ready to see them go.

But three programs that helped define excellence in television over the past years also said farewell. 'Law & Order,' '24,' and 'Lost' all featured primary players named Jack (McCoy, Bauer and Shephard, respectively), but also share an indelible mark on the small screen landscape. In fact, very little was small about any of these entities.

While fans of the latter two shows knew about their respective, imminent demises, the loss of "Law & Order" after the completion of its 20th season came as a surprise to many of its fans.

Benson's search for baby Calvin's mother, Vivian (Maria Bello). But when Vivian's name is linked to a rape case, the investigation is handed over to Detectives Fin and Munch. But knowing Benson, she isn't likely to stay on the bench for very long.

Meanwhile, over in 'Law & Order: Los Angeles,' the murder of a pro golfer takes Detectives Winters and Jaruszalski to the links -- and eventually to a suspect, a married pro golfer.

Shake Up at 'Law & Order: SVU' as Showrunner Neal Baer Moves to CBS

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 24th 2010 7:30AM
Neal BaerAfter 11 years with the drama, it's been reported that showrunner Neal Baer is leaving 'Law & Order: SVU' at the end of this season.

According to Variety, Baer has been lured away from the NBC drama by rival network CBS, who offered him a lucrative three-year development and production deal. His move to CBS seems like a natural fit because he's had long working relationships with senior CBS executives Nina Tassler and David Stapf.

"After more than a decade on 'SVU' I felt it was time to take a breath and say 'What's next? And those people who were there for me at the very beginning said 'We're next,'" Baer said.

He added, "I've loved every moment of SVU, and I am deeply grateful to Dick Wolf for giving me the opportunity to work on a show of such depth and profundity."

'Magical Law': It Can't Be Any Worse Than 'Outlaw'

'Magical Law' A combo of 'Harry Potter' and 'Law & Order: SVU?'
Have you watched an episode of 'The Good Wife' or any of the myriad 'Law & Order' shows and thought, "Wow, if only Detective Benson could cast a spell on that pedophile so his peep falls off. Now that would be justice!"

Well, you may have your chance. According to Joe Adalian of the Vulture blog, there's a pilot script in development at Fox that's a cross between 'Law & Order' and 'Harry Potter.' Yes, you read that right.

Called 'Magical Law,' the show would take place in a wizarding world, where we'd examine how cops and lawyers are able to police and prosecute all of those magic-wielders who are using their powers for evil instead of good (or to conjure kittens from furniture... not sure what these wizards do on their time off). No word on if the cops and lawyers would have powers themselves, but the show would be a heck of a lot more interesting if they did.

Sounds like a silly premise, right? Lawyers and cops fighting crime in the magical realm? But think about it for a second: as much of a disaster than this show sounds like it could be, it can't be any worse than a lawyer show that's already come and gone this season: NBC's "Outlaw."

'Law & Order: SVU': Another Link in the Chain (VIDEO)

'Law & Order: SVU': Another Link in the ChainInvestigating a grizzly murder is bad enough on its own. But what if that single crime leads to a much greater mystery? That's the situation on 'Law & Order: SVU' (Wed., 9PM ET on NBC).

[Warning: Spoiler alert.]

A young woman named Samantha is raped and murdered; her body is left in an industrial laundry facility. Now Detectives Benson and Stabler (Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni) must track down her killer. But when a string of clues leads them to an anonymous house in New York City, they get a lot more than they bargained for.

The detectives stop Jason Gamble (Joseph Sikora) outside his house, just to ask a few questions. He's not the suspect they're looking for. But when Jason goes inside to get a piece of info for the cops, he suddenly locks the door on them. That's rude, but what happens next is a lot worse.

Law and Order SVUShows that regularly rip their stories from the headline have to do their research, since all the little details add up to the big picture.

Both 'Law & Order: SVU' and 'Law & Order: Los Angeles' (Wed., 9 and 10PM ET on NBC) pride themselves on getting those details right.

In tonight's 'SVU,' writer Ken Storer came up with the original story, but decided to link it to a current event -- namely, the BP oil spill. In 'Trophy,' an environmental activist is found raped and murdered. Det. Benson (Mariska Hargitay) ends up forming a connection to the victim's daughter, and soon discovers that the case may be part of a larger, more insidious mystery.
