Jack McCoy from Law & Order
“I was just obsessed with the original Law & Order in my twenties and I’m sure I’ve seen every episode. Some cable channel would play a couple of back to back episodes every day when I got home from work. The show seemed to depict New York as a scary place where anything could happen. McCoy was a bit ruthless and a rule bender, and at times it seemed like it was necessary to achieve justice; at least he would contend. He was entertaining to watch and it made me interested in law and the judicial system. Also, McCoy wouldn’t always “get his man,” which was also entertaining to watch.”
