ORDER In?

The travails of everyday life kept me away from my keyboard for most of the day, meaning my Robin Hood piece will have to wait 'till tomorrow.  In the meantime though, we have some new word today on the Law & Order front.  Pronounced DOA by most of us last Friday, the show is now, according to head Law dog Dick Wolf (via Deadline), "in a medically induced coma, waiting for a live-saving medicine."  That life-saving medicine might potentially come in the form of a 21st season pickup by TNT, which has practically built its current "We Know Drama" reputation on Law & Order reruns.

At present it's still the longest of longshots, but the mere fact that this is being discussed in the press means the possibility is more real now than it was a few days ago.  While the ins-and-outs of production costs, licensing fees, and rampant egos that need to be navigated before anything close to a deal can materialize are considerable, you knew that Wolf wasn't going to let his dream for a TV distance record slip away without a fight.  As of now, my DVR still tells me that next Monday's Law & Order ep is the series-ender, but this is clearly a story that's continuing to develop, so who knows what happens by the time it actually airs.
