I'm a big Law & Order fan, so this one took me quite by surprise.

Jerry Orbach was truly one of a kind, and Dick Wolf put it perfectly when he said he was "irreplaceable."

Yes, indeed. I have only seen maybe 20 or so episodes, all in re-run... one day, I'd like to watch them all.

Also, we're on the flip side now, waiting excitedly. ;)
