Any long-time fan of Law & Order is intimately knowledgeable with how the American legal system operates –  well at least on TV.

Almost every episode starts out with some poor soul found dead, dying or badly beaten. Investigators show up, there is some witty banter about the victim, despite the still-warm body lying there on the ground in view of all. Next, the detectives track down various suspects, narrow it to one individual, a grand jury indicts that person and the police are sent to pick up the alleged criminal. More witty banter as the perp is walked to the undercover police car. Court room drama ensues and the person goes to jail.

Neat and tidy in an hour shortened by commercials.
