    Goof (factual errors): Throughout the series, the detectives (or crime scene analysts) are able to ID a bullet caliber from the wound size. In reality this is impossible. A 9mm, .38, .40 and even a .45 all make wounds that are indistinguishable from each other on a body. The police also often look at a bullet and ID the pistol from it. While possible, this requires forensic analysis and is generally not very conclusive because the bullet is too deformed. The conformation of a particular bullet coming from a particular gun using "ballistic fingerprinting" has never resulted in a conviction.

    With the airing of its 20th season, beginning 25 September 2009, "L&O" tied the record held by Gunsmoke for the longest running prime-time drama series on US television (other shows, such as Saturday Night Live and The Simpsons have lasted longer, but in other genres). However, it was announced in May 2010 that the series was not renewed for the 2010-2011 season, so the "Gunsmoke" tie remains unbroken.
