Law & Order: SVU - Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts


This was another example of how ridiculous Stabler's absence is. I wish they'd just say he died or something because there is no way at all that he wouldn't have been in that courtroom to support Olivia. Or more likely he'd be visiting Lewis in jail making threats and screwing up the case. But to not even have him mentioned? Even if it's just Cragen saying that he spoke to Eliot's new captain and he's still undercover or something. But don't just pretend he never existed especially when they mention him on the stand.

Waste to have REG only to do nothing with her. But I swear that woman's hair is everything! So gorgeous and full of life. It was always on point on OLTL.

I wasn't expecting much from her appearance. This was all about Liv and Lewis. Her hair is gorgeous but I continue to be amazed at how the woman. doesn't. age.

Meloni seems to have put SVU behind him and negotiations year after year were always dramatic with him, but I would just love for one eppy! Just one damn eppy where Stabler is back. We know that cockroach will return, can Stabler kill him? We've already seen the showdown with Benson. It is now time for someone to break this guy into 3 equal pieces no questions asked.

This past episode was horrible. There is no jury in America that wouldn't have convicted that asswipe.

I see they set it up perfectly for him to get out in May. :rolleyes:

Good Lord! Will that cochroach just die already?! This is not interesting anymore (not sure if it ever was).

Is it commonplace for the accused to badger their alleged victim on the stand? I find that so disturbing... A bad reaction from the victim can be misconstrued. Very disturbing!

No judge would have let someone yell and go in on a witness like that. This episode was abysmal.

Wow! What did I watch? The search is on for a missing kid who landed in the hands of a pedophile and child pornography ring. Did they kidnap the kid? Nope. Mommy had a convenient breakdown and gave the kid to this group. That's not the worse part. She got the kid back at the end of the eppy because daddy promises to be home more and mommy says she'll never do it again. Huh? Benson walks off and tells this woman that she is lucky there are no better options for the kid? Again, huh? There are no better options than a wacko who delivers the kid to sex offenders? OMG! I had to go back to the beginning to make sure the mother in the beginning was the same woman at the end because I could not believe she was given the kid back and didn't even have to fight for him.

This show really has expired!

I agree. This show has really gone off the rails. Oddly, my biggest problem is the villains are cartoonish. This guy who was arrested (who had faked paralysis for years) was more concerned about leaving that feast (talk about gorging) than being arrested. Patricia Arquette's characters was a complete joke. In the old days, they would have written some nuance. The mother would have been shown to be a basket case or something. I think Ron Carlivati is writing SVU now. It's a joke.

The only really good thing the show has going for it (IMHO) is the chemistry between Benson and Barba. I don't like romance or even hints of it on procedural shows, but they're my one exception. They're great friends, and have such a mutual trust and respect for each other. Not to mention that they have great sexual tension - and it's totally not there with Cassidy.

When the show finally ends, and when Benson finally rides off into the sunset, I hope that Barba will be the one by her side. wub.png

Other than that, I agree with everyone. Any edge the show once had is long gone - plus I miss Munch, his snark and his conspiracy theories. Thank goodness for reruns!!!

So let me see if I get this right...

IAB has footage of Detective Amanda Rollins about to give a guy a BJ in a seedy club because she is $15k [which is really not that big of a deal] in the hole from gambling debts, and she needed to prove to him that she can be trusted? IAB, after a "convincing" argument from an undercover NYC cop, says "okie dokie...go back to work".

What's left to say about this show?!

They have really demolished Rollins. I can't stand to watch her anymore. And Benson has become the biggest hypocrite on the planet.

She got off WAAAAAAAAAAAAY too easy. No suspension, not even desk duty? What a cop-out (no pun intended).

She should have been suspended if not fired and ordered to supply proof of help for her addiction.

They left Tucker out of it for a reason. There is no way he would have let Rollins go back to work. Hell, he brought Benson in and took her badge for less.

It was absolutely ridiculous and possibly one of the worst eppies this show has ever produced!

And It really was a cop out.

I love the hell out of my girl Kelli Giddish but the one I couldn't take my eyes off of was Sherri Saum. When she was all badass and cold, I thought to myself, "Now there's RJ Gannon's daughter." laugh.png It's amazing because I watch The Fosters and she plays this all-loving earth mother type yet I had no problem seeing her as this stone cold bitch on SVU.

As for the story, yeah, it was a cop out but I loved seeing Fin really trying to be there for Rollins.

What the hell is up with Amaro? He's moving into this creepy stalker mode. First with Maria, then Rollins. I'd like to think that his line to Liv about being extra careful after her abduction was true but there also seems to be more going on there. We don't know what he's been doing to Maria that has made her keep calling Liv and I'm not sure how he's going to react now that he knows about it.

Saum was really good.

Seems like they are trying to create an Elliot to Rollin's Benson with Amaro, but he looks like a fool. First he was way too clingly with Benson and now, all of a sudden, he's over protective of Rollins. Not interested. There is only one Benson & Stabler
