Law & Order: Los Angeles

Series 1 - 1. Hollywood

David Brown

Attempts to establish the California credentials of this latest spin-off are immediately apparent: New York ghettos have been replaced with exclusive nightclubs, the crimes take place behind the gates of Hollywood mansions and tips come from gossip websites. But despite such surface changes, this is standard Law & Order — the case is still “ripped from the headlines” (tonight’s opener is inspired by the Bling Ring robberies that targeted such celebs as Paris Hilton) and screen time remains clearly divided between cop-shop
and courthouse.

On the legal side, Alfred Molina adds gravitas as an assistant DA, while police investigator Skeet Ulrich is partnered by Corey Stoll, a man whose luxuriant moustache is worthy of a 1970s porn star.
