An unedited take on L&O fans discussing the show and there is a lot of laughter. I love it, sounds like a conversation with friends. I would like more Criminal Intent focused episodes in the future. Love Vincent D'Onofrio!

law and order svu should have been canceled a lot time ago because it's gotten extremely stale but it isn't pro-police propaganda. also If they actually believe that it as a whole should be thrown down the memory hole and never taked about again. they should should also cancel this podcast.

“The people who listen to rap, or like Ice T” wouldn’t like law and order. Why is that?
