I like watching the crossover from L&O and other Dick Wolf produced shows ... especially Oz many castmembers from that have ended up on or been on L&O. BD Wong, JK Simmons, Christopher Meloni, Kirk Acevedo, Dean Winters, J.D. Williams, etc.

I'd like to see more of Lee Tergeson and Harold Perrineau, Jr.

They've got a little promo (for SVU) on the USA channel where they ask the actors what they think that noise is. The guy who plays Lt. Cragen (I can never remember his name) says, "That's the doink-doink sound." Now my wife and I have a running argument - she says it sounds nothing like 'doink-doink' and I say, Okay, YOU spell it.

A "doink-doink" would be higher pitched. It's the noise Moe's fingers' make when poking out Curly's eyes.

L&O is definitely a "Ching-Ching".

I always thought of it as a "dong-dong."

Has anyone else noticed, TNT seems to run the episodes in random order in the afternoons early in the week--but many, many times, I've noticed episodes with the same small-part actors playing different roles play back-to-back. My husband thinks I'm nuts, but I've lost track of the number of times it's happened, definitely more than 15 or so.

*pouty face* I didn't get the noise when I pulled up the page (does browser make a difference?).

I was thought it was more like, "blong blong".

IIRC, a while back, I was watching something about TV themes, and I heard that the guy that does the music for the show (Mike Post?) created that noise by tweaking a synth sound through his keyboards...or something to that effect.

Ching-ching?

eh...I dunno. Chong-chong, maybe.

But you've got to admit, 'Doink doink' is definitely funnier.

It always made me think of a jail cell closing. Just more flashbacks from a misspent youth I guess.

I've never watched 'Oz'. Did B.D. Wong play the same FBI pyschiatrist character?

I don't know why, but I really get a kick out of crossovers - I know it usually has mainly to do with ratings, but it's still fun. I can remember when I was a kid, there was some cop drama that was on the same night as that Carl Betz lawyer show 'Judd for the Defense', and I thought it was so cool that they caught the bad guy on the cop show and then Judd defended him an hour later.

Dude111, are you an archaeologist? Not that there's anything wrong with that.

No problem, it's good to see someone digging into the archives, enjoying the wealth of information/entertainment there.
For me it's bittersweet, reading the interesting people who have drifted away.


The curse of old age is not the physical pain or limp libido, it's nostalgia.

Yes you have, of course there is a lot of them to find so don't take a deep bow, maybe a nod.
