Law & Order is the original “binge-worthy” drama that set the pace for almost all police procedurals in the last two decades. Splitting time between solving the crime and prosecuting the perpetrators, the show was set in New York City and often featured ripped from the headlines story-arcs. The cast cycles over the 20 seasons it aired, but every single one of them played their role spectacularly. It’s disappointing that this show ended, but at least it’s forever in syndication. Literally, there isn’t a day when the show isn’t on some channel. It’s also given us the greatest sound effect in TV history. Dun, dun.

The show inspired multiple spinoffs such as Criminal Intent, Special Victim’s Unit (SVU), and the short-lived series in Los Angeles.
