I think Lenny left before Jerry died. Wasn't he the star of a spin off that bombed with his death?

Jerry Orback was a guest star really on Law and Order Trial By Jury - the star was Bebe Neuwirth

Yes, his last episode was wonderful. I loved when he said good bye to the Lt saying it was his longest relationship with a woman.
As much as I have enjoyed L&O, and it was created as a show that would not rely on any star/actor/actresses, Jerry Orbach made that show.
Note - I read an article with Dick Wolf awhile back, and he had worked on some show in the 80s with some young guys that did well, and after one year held out for more money, so that is how he created L&O- not wanting to depend on actors. Also the article mentioned that the L&O franchise generated something like 25% of the profits for NBC for a time.

That would have been Miami Vice. Where is Phillip Michael Thomas now? Somewhere in Rex's house chained to the wall?

Summer!!! Awesome. Loved her in Firefly. Of course, I also loved Nathan, Gina and the rest of them too. Talk about a show that got canceled way too soon! :(

Not upset to see Heroes go but it would be nice to see closure on that and Flash Forward.

Going to be odd next year with both 24 and Lost off my DVR schedule. (although I do think 24 went on 2 seasons too long :shuffle: )

Fans of history shows should also check out Spartacus: Blood and Sand. It takes a while to get into it and you might be put off by the violence and 300esque graphics, but the patience is well worth it.

Starz ordered a second season, but it's temporarily on hold as the lead actor is getting treatment for lymphoma.

You could also be offended by the lots of gratuitous nudity-lots of it. Just to put that out there with the violence warnings.

I watched Law and Order from it's inception, so I'm really sad to see it go away. The constant changes in cast made it seem fresh and revitalized every few years, but I guess all good things must come to an end. But it was a treat to see all the great New York actors guest star on the show, plus the occaisional big names like Julia Roberts and Gary Busey. But it's going to live on in reruns forever, and with 400+ episodes to watch, it won't get stale soon.

I actually thought for a while Dick Wolf might as well start up a Law and Order channel to show reruns of all the shows all the time!

Now I'll really be sad when The Simpson's has it's last episode, hopefully that is a long way off.

Pul-leese! :rolleyes: No deadbeat daddies in this bed, no matter how fine they are!

Phillip's nickname should be "Johnny Appleseed" :EVILLE:.

His last imdb entry (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0859365/)is from 2006 - a voice in a Grand Theft Auto game.

Interesting about AI getting their schedule cut, and rather severely.

For those wondering about Lonestar - it's been known as Midland in preproduction, and there's a full cast list on imdb.

I heard Brothers & Sisters was only picked up for 18 episodes this season.

Is this expected to be their last?
