Re: Mariska Hargitay to Continue with Law & Order:SVU

I would hate to see Dann Florek go, he's one of my favorite L&O actors of all time. I can understand why it might happen, but I still hate it. Cragen rocks!

As for Benson: If she does take over the squad, I bet Munch would be only too happy to let her (he hates it when he has to run things, he only took the Sergeant's exam on a bar bet ). I wonder if Benson could go straight to Lieutenant without being a Sergeant first...

And FWIW, I miss Stabler.

I don't see why she couldn't. I'm not a cop myself, but doesn't it all boil down to whatever the department wants to do - meaning they can promote her straight to Lieutenant if they want to?

Re: Mariska Hargitay to Continue with Law & Order:SVU

^ I think there are separate promotion exams for Sergeant and Lieutenant. I don't know if it actually is possible to skip a rank though.

Re: Mariska Hargitay to Continue with Law & Order:SVU

Good continuous career move on the part of Ms. Hargitay.

To think she almost endedup in the role of Dulcea in Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: The Movie. That would have typecast her for good like Jolene Blalock.

Re: Mariska Hargitay to Continue with Law & Order:SVU

Stabler as a character was beginning to irritate me. I generally don't like characters who do things that I would consider wrong, get away with it, and the audience is obviously supposed to be pleased that he stuck it to the man. The 'ends always justify the means' thing that Stabler was beginning to represent wasn't something I particularly wanted to watch every episode.

The only thing I like about the cast pics is Mariska Hargitay's legs.

The writing has gotten a lot better this season. Mostly straight police procedural, without the nonsensical twists every three seconds.

I second the "What the hell?" reaction.

Why does Ice-T have his pimp hand extended, as if to say, "Join us in the future, where everything is white (except me!)"?

I like the addition of the two new characters though after watching Cold Case for 7 seasons i keep thinking Danny Pino is playing the same character on SVU but I think that's more me than him.
I know what you mean. I was more of a Cold Case fan than an SVU fan - I loved that show, and I loved the character of Scotty Valens. And whenever I see Danny Pino, I subconsciously wait to see Kathryn Morris (who I also adored).

I am glad for him that he he got the gig, and no doubt he's probably happy to be playing a new character, even if it is another cop. But in my personal ideal world he'd have moved to a CSI show - then he could have stayed Scotty Valens.

Where are the Cold Case DVDs anyway? I heard it was something to do with the music rights.

I think SVU is a fine program, though as Law and Order shows are concerned, I like Criminal Intent the best.
Nice to see that Hargitay is staying on the show. She is good enough actress and easy on the eyes.
