The time-lines of trials seem to be rushed and take place within days of the crime. Most of the cases on this series are homicides, with a few rapes and kidnappings thrown in. These cases, if not plea bargained, are seldom heard in less than a year after the event.
When the 15th season episode "Gunplay", originally aired in October 2004, was rebroadcast in March 2005, it ran with the opening credits showing Annie Parisse, even though the episode features Elizabeth Rohm who was originally credited. As a result, Rohm is uncredited in the rebroadcast of this episode.
The version of the show shown in the UK on Channel Five has a completely different version of the opening credits with different music. Also UK satellite channel Sky One has a different version of opening credits to the US and Channel 5 versions and music.
