I got around to watching this last night on DVR. It was "ok". Nothing exciting. Might only be worth watching for the landmarks.

The show was awful. Slow pacing, uninteresting characters and the whole thing was blah. It's a shame they canceled the original for this dreck.

It doesn't look like a very realistic show. This is what L.A.'s top 100 criminals actually look like:

Tonight airs the final episode of L&O: L.A., titled "Westwood" and involves UCLA. I feared that the series would play up and concentrate on the stereotypes of LA: Hollywood and gangs, but the detectives were low-key and the show tried to cover a somewhat realistic look at our city (they showed the localism at Lunada Bay). It wasn't worth mothballing the mothership but infinitely more watchable than similar series like the execrable NCIS: Los Angeles.

The mid-season reboot was questionable. They added Alana de la Garza from the original series which upped the number of principal Latino characters to three (even though Alfred Molina has English origins). This better reflects the city demos but I wonder if it did anything to attract Hispanic viewers and/or fans of the original.

The episode, "East Pasadena," re-imagined the Bell scandal in the fictional city of East Pasadena, with the actual city of South Pasadena standing in. The South Pas city hall was renamed and shown several times, and there was a scene shot at Buster's Ice Cream shop.

Has anyone else recognized location shots?

I think it failed because it was missing one key ingredient: New York city. New York, specifically Manhattan, just had that special feel to it. Claustrophobic and gothic, from it's canyons of steel and glass to it's ominous tenements and back alley ways, it's the perfect setting for a big city police force and district attorney office battling crime and grime both on the streets and in the court room...

Or: It's not a "reality" show. Had to go.
