Jury Finds in Favor of “Law & Order” 

In the somewhat crowded genre of television legal dramas, the original run of “Law & Order” continues to stand out years after it ended due to its memorable cast and great writing. The show ran for two decades and ended 10 years ago, but when found in syndication or on Peacock still manages to feel fresh.

The Lumineers Strike at the Heart with “III”

The Lumineers released their third studio album, “III,” in September 2019, adding another release to their catalog of stripped back folk rock the band is known for. The record itself is an emotional journey through the story of a family and its generational battles with addiction and familial neglect.

The Lumineers perform at Brixton Academy in London, England, in April 2016. The band’s debut self-titled release, “The Lumineers,” is a certified triple platinum in the U.S. and Canada, and their sophomore record, “Cleopatra,” is certified platinum in the U.S. as well.      Photo by Drew de F Fawkes.
