    Oh, Law and Order is another excellent show you should watch if you haven't already.
    OK, "ID", I got it here! Ha ha.

    I just checked for "Law and Order". It appears to be on every night for around 5 hours solid! (on channel '5 USA'). I just saw the composer of the soundtrack is Mike Post. This guy is prolific! He has written almost every U.S. cop TV theme-tune!

    I found "FBI Files" on a channel called 'Quest'. I can't find 'Forensic Files' still but I think it will be lurking somewhere in this area!

    And, if you don't know it, urbandictionary is a great site for current slang, along with a lot of noise.
