The Daily Truffle was VERY excited for our own personal L.A. Law & Order series, and so we tuned into the premiere last night but were distracted by mentions of clubs from yesteryear and restaurants that were popular way back when or never.
The Mondrian hotel
The Edison downtown
Avalon as a club
Chin Chin on Sunset Plaza
And finally, the Hillcrest Country Club reference by Alfred Molina’s character felt forced.
The first episode was labeled Hollywood – FAME FOR SALE, and was based on the Bling Ring in Hollywood and featured a group of thieves who target the homes of young Hollywood such as Orlando Bloom and Lindsey Lohan.
Detectives Rex Winters (Skeet Ulrich) and Tomas “TJ” Jaruszalski (Corey Stoll) soon discover it’s an inside job committed by friends in the same circles as the young actors and actresses.
Spoiler ALERT = the mom did it.
Law & Order: Los Angeles is on NBC Wednesday this fall – we shall continue to watch and so should you!
Here is a good COMPLETE regale of the entire episode – http://allthingslawandorder.blogspot.com/2010/09/law-order-los-angeles-hollywood-recap.html
