These Are Their Stories: According to IMDb, every 'Law & Order' show is ranked ...

Few shows in television are as popular and iconic as Dick Wolf''s Law & Order. Despite its constant syndication, everyone has seen an episode, and pretty much everyone knows the "Dun Dun" sound effect. How many other shows have had a scene transition sound effect enter the public consciousness?

The Law & Order franchise has received eight different entries, some lasting for decades, others for a single season, but remained the same. Despite its prominence, the series has become a staple of television that will always remain in mainstream entertainment.

6.4/10 of Law & Order: Trial by Jury (2005 - 2006)

"In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two distinct but equally important organizations," says the police, the district attorneys, who prosecute the offenders. "These are their stories," says the mayor. While the two groups are equally equally important, the prosecution of the perpetrators is a story of a variety of cases of Law & Order, and its focus is focused mostly on the criminal trial.

The series followed both the prosecution and the defense attorneys as they prepared for and tried a different criminal trial each episode. Bebe Neuwirth, the two time Emmy nominee, has led a team of judges, including actors from the Law & Order and the SVU detective team. Unfortunately, the audience was disappointed by the decision, as the show was the first ever Law & Order show to be canceled.

Law & Order: Los Angeles (2010 - 2011) - 6.7/10

Law & Order: LA should have been a great success for the franchise. You just follow the New York-set Law & Order and set it in the complex world of Los Angeles. In some ways, the show works. Like, if you just watched a random episode on the USA Network, you may even enjoy it. However, the issue with the show was inconveniency.

The show starred Corey Stoll and Skeet Ulrich as the detective team, and Alfred Molina and Terrance Howard as the lead prosecutors. Making it worse, the show subsequently aired several episodes with the original cast, then the new cast episodes, and then other shoddy writing. This left a Law & Order show void.

True Crime (2017 - 2017): Law & Order (7.3/10)

The fact that Law & Order: True Crime did not appear as a sequel to other true crime episodes is kind of baffling, as it appears to be such a secure thing. You include the famous Law & Order franchise, attach it to a notorious true crime story, and you should have a hit. For this one-season anthology show, it''s not exactly how things worked out.

The only season of True Crime focuses on the menendez brothers'' fathers, a pair of wealthy Beverly Hills children murdered their parents in 1989. The show''s lawyer, Leslie Abramson, was then nominated for her performance, which is a rarity for the Law & Order franchise. While the show may not have been a hit in the present day, this show is worthwhile to watch.

7.5/10 for Law & Order: Criminal Intent (2001 - 2011)

Law & Order: Criminal Intent''s second-ever spin-off sparked interest in the criminal offender''s motive, hence the title. It provided a different flavor of the same Law & Order we all know and love, in a way that has earned it a huge fan base.

Over the course of the 10-season run, several detectives starred, including Jeff Goldblum. D''Onofrio, which performs in every role, has a unique acting scout, combining Erbe''s exceptional ability and made for a team that is more than ever.

Law & Order: UK (2010 - 2014) - 7.6/10

Watching Law & Order: The United Kingdom may seem to be a parallel universe to US viewers. Everything is pretty much the same but somewhat different. At its core, Law & Order: The United Kingdom is still the police procedural we all know and love. In fact, the scripts of the UK are actually adaptations of the mother-ship Law & Order episodes.

Law & Order: The United Kingdom continues to feel similar to the United Kingdom''s criminal justice system, even though it''s the actual plots we''ve previously seen in New York City, and is still grateful for the production, as well as changes to the scripts, to ensure that the appeal of the Law & Order formula is effective.

Law & Order: Organized Crime(2021 -) - 7.6/10

The return of SVU alum Detective Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) this time after suffering a personal tragedy. On Organized Crime, it''s more personal than ever.

Organized Crime is not an episodic procedural cop drama; it''s a serialized show that each episode builds on a larger story. Although, Law & Order has always had the occasional multi-episode story arc, or recurring character, and thus Organized Crime is building new ground.

Law & Order (1990 -) - 7.8/10

When Law & Order was launched in 1990, it shifted the focus to television. Sure, before Law & Order, a slew of cop shows and lawyer shows collided into one, and both genres merged into a series about the criminal justice system in America. The way that each episode of Law & Order was inspired by a real-life crime only made it more actual.

Law & Order is perhaps the most famous TV drama of all time. This is because in part to the incredible cast including Jerry Orbach, Sam Waterston, S. Epatha Merkerson, Jesse L. Martin, Anthony Anderson, and Jeremy Sisto. After going on the air in 2010, the mother-ship passed away for its 21st season in 2021. Although we never had to go without some Law & Order on TV screens, it''s really nice to have the original back.

8.1/10 of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999 -)

Law & Order''s very first spin-off has arguably overtaken the original as the most iconic TV show of all time. It''s even outlasted and surpassed the original''s record-breaking episode count. When you say you were watching SVU, everyone knows exactly what you''re talking about. This is particularly interesting considering the topic of the show.

The main reason that the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is so popular is that the characters are the most compelling of the franchise. For years, audiences loved seeing Detectives Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Stabler (Christopher Meloni) solving the darkest of New York''s crimes. Even after Stabler''s departure, there was Detective Tutola (Ice-T), Captain Cragen (Dann Florek) and Detective John Munch (Rich
