A love letter to Annie Parisse.

There's a new girl in townScott and I were watching this week's Law & Order last night (he worked late on Wednesday so we taped it). As we watched it, we both agreed on two things - Dennis Farina dresses way too fancy for a detective (Gucci loafers?), and Annie Parisse is the best actress they have ever had in the ADA role. While she isn't as sexy as the young Claire, and she doesn't possess the cool/composed/quietly seething quality of Abbie, she challenges Jack and takes him on in a way that makes you understand that not only is she just as smart as him (if not smarter), one day, she will take his job. Yes, you heard it hear first folks. If and when Sam Waterson hangs up his tie and leaves Law & Order, our girl Alexandra could easily fill his shoes. Hopefully the website department will get off their asses sooner rather than later and erase that ugly smear (Serena's face) from the Law & Order homepage. I think we can all agree that is 3.5 seasons we don't need to remember, let alone see repeats of.

  1. Thank god, I thought I was the only one who never liked Serena. Though I never realized she was a lesbian until that last episode. I guess I haven't really been paying attention.

    jaime: There was nothing to pay attention to, the L&O writers sprung the whole lezbo angle on us out of nowhere at the end of Serena's tenure. It was the biggest non sequitur in TV history, as far as I'm concerned.
