Today's giveaway is so good it's criminal

As the year ends, so do the giveaways and so we want to go out with a bang.

And where to find more bang-bangs than on a crime show?  Even better we've got shows from two eras and two coasts!

First up, "Law & Order Los Angeles," the Dick Wolf series that came on after NBC cruelly canceled the original "Law & Order," and then after a slow start got good after somebody figured out that Terrence Howard and Alfred Molina should be on the show every week but then it was too late and they canceled it too but at least not before we got to see TJ (Corey Stoll) avenge Rex's (Skeet Ulrich) death. I think.

Anyway, you'll get the complete series -- more than 15 hours of Terrence and Alfred and lovely Alana De La Garza. Plus there's commentary from writer/director Rene Balcer.

There's more. We're adding the 1958 black & white series "Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer," starring Darren McGavin. It's the complete 78-episode run, 33 hours of a two-fisted gumshoe trying to set New York straight. Back then, it was criticized for its gratuitous violence so you can compare and contrast with Law & Order!

Want them? Just send an email by 10 tonight (12/29) and we'll have a random drawing and get them out to you.

VH1's Soul Train doc: It's a stone gas honey!


Black History Month often means a lot of programming featuring African-Americans but not a lot of actual history.

But tonight at 9:30, VHI premieres "Soul Train: The Hippest Trip in America" a documentary on the iconic show that gives plenty of history, culture and nostalgia.

I luuuved it!
