Are you like me, and have you ever wondered what are the sounds, yes sounds, that make up Law & Order’s iconic dun-dun? Well, thanks to Jeopardy we know now.

During Final Jeopardy, Ken Jennings asked the contestants, “Mike Post combined the sound of a slamming jail door, an anvil & 100 men stomping on the floor for this series that debuted in 1990.”

While, I knew the answer was Law & Order, I didn’t know all of that was used to create just two notes. Did you?

Now, we know why the dun-dun is so powerful; so many sounds of force went into it.

The more you know…

Taylor Kinney is one of the last originals on Chicago Fire, and Deadline is reporting that he is taking a break from the series, which is filming its 11th season.

The site added that the actor is “taking a leave of absence to deal with a personal matter.”

The cast and crew found out about his temporary absence today. As of now, there is no word how the first responders’ drama will handle why Kelly Severide’s is missing.

There is a report coming to the National Enquirer that Ice T and Chris Meloni are feuding. So does Ryan Murphy have the subject for his next season of Feud?

He does not. The Law & Order: Criminal Intent wrote, “So…⁦@FINALLEVEL⁩ [Ice T] was sent this. He was kind enough to let me know we were feuding.” And the Law & Order: SVU star responded to that Tweet with, “Just sent this email over to my guy @Chris_Meloni Clownass MFs trying to make up Drama outta thin air… WOW… MFs are really on that BS.”

Just went we thought that Stabler and Benson kissing was going to be the most exciting thing to happen in the Law & Order universe this week, we get this. Hopefully, the kiss won’t be as much of a letdown. Sorry, I like a good fight that doesn’t involve me.

Brian Tee is the latest actor to leave NBC’s Chicago Med. The actor opted not to renew his contract so that he could spend more time with his wife and daughter and pursue other jobs in Hollywood.

“Playing Dr. Ethan Choi on Chicago Med has been such a gift and a blessing. I am forever grateful to our fans and my colleagues both in front of and behind the camera as I embark on a new journey. I am forever indebted to Dick Wolf, NBC, and Universal Television for choosing me,” Tee told Deadline.

“What we’ve been planning for Dr. Choi’s sendoff is fitting, and it’s beautiful,” he added. “I think the fans are going to absolutely love it. It’s going to bring a little bit of the new Ethan and a little bit of the old. Know that episode 9 is going to be an amazing one.”

His departure is not a surprise because they haven’t used him or done anything with his character in a few seasons. Plus, he took off most of last year to star alongside Nicole Kidman in Expats which is coming to Amazon.

His last episode will be seen on December 7th. But he will be back next year to direct an episode.

Law & Order: SVU is going into its 24th season next month. Kelli Giddish has been on the procedural for half of it. However, she will not be around for her 13th year on the series because this season will be her last playing Detective Amanda Rollins.

“I wanted to address the chatter I’ve seen online and let everyone know that this will, indeed, be my last season on ‘Law & Order: SVU.’ Playing Rollins has been one of the greatest joys and privileges of my life. I’ve been so fortunate to be a part of the ‘Law & Order’ family for the last 12 years. There is simply no other character on TV like Rollins. She’s grown and changed, and I have as well. I started on this show when I was in my late 20s and I’m grateful I got to spend so many of my adult years with Rollins in my life,” she wrote.

“I want to thank Dick Wolf, Mariska Hargitay, Warren Leight, Peter Jankowski, NBC, Universal Television, all of my co-stars, every single member on the crew and all the writers here for our incredible work together these last 12 years. I’m so excited to take all the things I have learned in my time on ‘SVU’ and put them toward everything that’s next to come…. #SVU”

Giddish did not say if she will be around for the full season, but I am sure her exit will be one we won’t soon forget.

Are you going to miss Giddish and Detective Rollins?
