Jenny in Oregon: The first episode of L&O:LA was disappointing. I love Law & Order, though. Does it get better?The second episode is definitely stronger. The story hits some nice Los Angeles notes with a Manson family-esque murder, and the incomparable Jay Karnes guests as a snarky lawyer. Plus we'll meet Skeet Ulrich's ex-detective wife (played by Teri Polo) when she is implicated in a wrongful-imprisonment case.
