Fans who really watch “Law & Order: Organized Crime” keep track of the details and they are pleased with the show’s writers

And where do we go to get a fans’ perspective? None other than on Reddit.

A thread started by Redditor resolvconf recently is where we go to get all the details, if you will.

He starts it with “Shoutout to the Albanian guy the writers talked to…” with a list of points.

They include the following:

  • red and black double eagle flags on everything
  • minions wearing sunglasses indoors
  • old women reading your fortune from coffee grounds
  • every surface inside of the house covered in plastic
  • fake plastic grapes as decorations
  • tave kosi quiche ( though thats a central albanian dish… the gangsters mostly live in the north)
  • yelling about besa oaths all of the time
  • Vinnie Jones’ accent (I didn’t recognize him… I originally thought the show must have dug up an actual Albanian actor).

‘Law & Order: Organized Crime’ Viewer Was ‘Shocked’ To Hear Vinnie Jones’ Voice

Redditor nonabjecthuman replied, “I was shocked to hear Vinnie jones speak, I thought the accent in the show was his actual accent lol”.

Jones, a British actor, plays Albi Briscu, an Eastern European gangster, on “Law & Order: Organized Crime.”

Then DSii1983 wrote, “Lol, I’ll add to the list: everyone loves to box (and) hanging out in shady bars in Morris Park”.

Fan caffeineandsnark chimes in by saying, “I love me some Vinnie Jones. I still can’t watch him in any role without thinking of Bullet-Tooth Tony.”

That is a reference to Jones’ character in the 2000 movie “Snatch.”

“Law & Order: Organized Crime” has had Detective Elliot Stabler, played by Chris Meloni, in an undercover role. He’s been working on infiltrating the gang that Briscu runs.

You can tune in on Thursday nights at 10 p.m. Eastern, 9 p.m. Central, on NBC, and see what’s going down.

Latest Bad Guy on Show Actually Spent Good Part of Career Playing Soccer

Yes, we are all watching Jones be a bad guy on “Law & Order: Organized Crime.” But the dude had a career playing soccer (or football) in Great Britain.

Listen to some of these teams he played for as a midfielder: Wimbledon, Leeds United, Sheffield United, Chelsea, and Queens Park Rangers.

After retiring from his career on the pitch, he got into movies with director Guy Ritchie.

Jones knows about playing tough guys from his soccer days as well as movies.

He said, “With ‘Law & Order’ I find myself totally at home in a big role … Going toe-to-toe with Christopher Meloni.”

But he’s quite pointed about his own career, saying “it flew off the rails.”

“Went up, went to Hollywood, everything else: bang, bang, bang, bang, bang,” Jones said.
