Law and Order: CI

So for a New York actress, it certainly took Miriam a million years to book a Law and Order, and she didn't even make it onto Law and Order Proper. (And who the heck is that new lead actress?)

I like getting to see her play a grown up. She is an adult, but no one ever casts her as such. She has a real arrested youth problem with the casting directors. But thank Gods, this time she became a grown up.

I thought her performance was top notch. The great thing about Law and Order is that the guest stars are the stars. I would have loved to see her get to play more off of Lee Tergesen. I also would have liked wardrobe to give her a bra that fits. She's tiny! How do you find a bra that's so tight around her back that it gave her fat rolls pushed from under it? That must have hurt. And the shirt was so thin that we could see the whole thing. That's just a bad shirt that shouldn't be on anyone, much less on a beautiful actress on television playing a classy character. It's just a big ball of wrong!

I do have to say, though, that my Junior High obsession with the word "defenestrate" made me squeal with glee when her character was not only defenestrated, but the actual word was used on the show. I mean, it's horrible to see Miriam Shor go splat on a sidewalk, yadda yadda yadda, but she was defenestrated! For serious!

But mostly I was glad to see her play a grown up and get to actually act. She had no reason to overact because she wasn't bored and didn't have to fuck around to entertain herself. She just got to act.

Too bad no one saw it because no one watches L&O: CI, new cast edition.

I love that her ankles were all twisty. From the, ya know, defenestration.
