Law & OrderIn the ninth season of the long-running — 20 seasons in all — but ended crime TV show Law & Order, Benjamin Bratt (La Mission) says goodbye to his Detective Reynaldo “Rey” Curtis role, which earned him an Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.

Before he leaves, Bratt’s Curtis and his partner Briscoe (the late Jerry Orbach, Dirty Dancing) find the killer of a parolee, solve a closed case from the 1960s and join with the detectives from Homicide: Life On the Streets in the crossover episode “Sideshow.”

The five-DVD Law & Order: The Ninth Year set contains 24 episodes of the television series by Dick Wolf, and they include guest stars including Leighton Meester (Country Strong), John Ventimiglia (TV’s The Sopranos) and Richard Belzer (Scarface).

Also a five-DVD set, Law & Order: The Tenth Year contains the final full season with Steven Hill (The Firm) as DA Adam Schiff, a role that earned Hill two Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.

The season also includes a crossover episode, this time “Entitled” with Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

Among the guest stars in season 10 are John Heard (TV’s Entourage) and Guillermo Diaz (TV’s Weeds).

The cases solved in the 24 episodes include a shooting spree in Central Park, a hit on a judge, an insurance scam, a school bully with an interest in martial-arts weapons and the fatal beating of a patient in a hospital lounge, among others.

The two seasons were earlier released on DVD in the Law & Order: The Complete Series DVD set.
