I was never one to follow the series and so I didn’t realize there were so many spinoffs from the original program. Today as I scanned my Xifinity TV app on my iPad I stumbled on Law & Order: UK (on the air since 2009) and I, being the extreme Anglophile that I am, was over the moon.

So here is a run down of the official Law & Order shows–based in the US. Only one is still in production today and that is Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

Law & Order
Law & Order: Criminal Intent
Law & Order: Trial by Jury
Law & Order: Los Angeles
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

Sources say we should be on the look out for Law & Order: Cape Town (yes South Africa) to launch in 2012. And if it is anything like the UK version you will need a handy guide of English to English translation (unless you’ve been watching BBC for years as I have) like they have for the UK version.
