I really like Law & Order. Not every episode -- I do pick-and-chose when watching reruns -- but yes, I'm one of those who will watch an episode half a dozen times or more. Unfortunately, fans of the show pretty much don't have another choice: as many years as the series was on the air, TNT and others largely show episodes from the more-recent seasons. There are a decade of "lost" episodes that simply don't get seen anymore. I suspect that's in part because channels feel audiences want to stick with the more familiar characters, and Law & Order has changed casts so many times. Or perhaps these are the only episodes that the show has been making available.
Whatever the reason, the Sundance Channel is changing that. With the new year, they've started showing the entire series -- from the start. As far as I can tell, the episodes are being aired at 8 PM during the week, but Sundance has repeats airings and offbeat schedules, so check schedules to make sure. However, this weekend they have two marathons, Saturday and Sunday, starting at noon (Los Angeles time) and running until 7 PM. All of these are with the original cast -- in this case, George Dzundza, Chris Noth, Michael Moriarity, Richard Brooks, Dann Florek and longtime cast member Stephen Hill.
Maybe they plan to have marathons every weekend. But for now, here are 14 hours that haven't been seen in quite a while.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
