2010–present; also “Law & Order: LA theme song”
The faith of this series hangs in the balance.
This post may well be about our disgust in the lack thereof—a proper theme song and opening for Law & Order: Los Angeles. The series actually started with one of those ten-second titles, which still stands as an appalling trend for new shows.
Below is the disappointing ten-second stint.
It does have a short background tune and all series original music is credited to Icelandic composer Atli Örvarsson. However, Wikipedia credits Mike Post for the “theme,” which kind of makes sense because it does resemble the melody of the original theme (which was composed by Mike Post). It does not even matter, really.
Also, I’m not 100% sure but I think this already-short non-theme was even entirely removed after like the sixth episode.
Seriously though, Mr. Dick Wolf, true Law & Order fans expect nothing short of a proper and memorable opening theme and narration. You owe it to the originals.
Check out how this guy even made a video just to vent out his frustration.
