'Community': 'Law And Order' Tribute Episode First Look (PHOTOS)

"Community" is paying tribute to one of NBC's biggest franchises, "Law & Order." In "Basic Lupine Urology" (Thurs., April 26, 8 p.m. ET on NBC), the group's science experiment is sabotaged, prompting Troy (Donald Glover) and Abed (Danny Pudi) to go into full "Law & Order" mode.

Once the "Order" part is done and the two think they've discovered the culprit, "Law" begins with "The Wire" actor Michael K. Williams serving as judge ... reluctantly. Leslie Hendrix, a veteran of "Law & Order," "Law & Order: SVU" and "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" also guest stars. Hendrix played Dr. Elizabeth Rodgers in more than 250 episodes across the "Law & Order" franchise. Like any typical "Law & Order" episode, there are twists and turns as Jeff (Joel McHale) eventually realizes the plot is a lot thicker than anybody suspects.
