In the criminal justice system …

So, the start of the season for mothership Law & Order, and the headline from which the writers rip is … Britney Spears’ parenting skills?

I guess that’s a way to speak to younger viewers.

They didn’t leave anything out — Britney and K-Fed, TomKat, Nick and Jessica … at least they were thorough. Next week is the MySpace episode. It does not portend well this season, does it not?

I’m going to wait for a few more episodes before I weigh in on the new cast members. Alana de Garza at least succeeded by not being so obviously bad as LawBarbie.

The season premiere of SVU waits for me on the TiVo, and I didn’t realize I had programmed a season pass for CI, so I missed that premiere. I’ll have to find out when it repeats on USA.
