    I'll say it again, the casino arc is way more interesting than any arc OC has done before. I'm almost hoping it'll last the entire season although it probably won't.

    As for the mothership: There was a disclaimer, so obviously this latest ep (about the murder of the author of a tell-all book) was ripped from a headline. Anyone know which one?

    Welcome to the human race. :lol:

    Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard. The accused is a Depp stand-in - charismatic actor that everybody loves and believes - only this time he got what he deserved. Yass, queen!

    It's not like the shows have exclusive ownership of the headlines. They're all perfectly capable of engaging in the same progressive wishful thinking.

    Indeed. Both times, they took Amber's side. Now who couldn't see THAT coming. :lol:

    Side note: I'm actually growing to like Muncy on SVU. I can already tell she will be much, MUCH less annoying than Rollins.

    I'll have to take your word for it. Still not watching SVU and I've given up on OC. I'm sticking with just TOS for the foreseeable future.

    They've finally cast a good team around Stabler and the villains are not caricatures. I think the title Organized Crime leads the mind to thinking of the mob and only the mob. It's good to see some white collar criminals.

    I'm honestly bored of the casino arc. It hasn't drawn me in yet. Past the guys wife. Other than that, no dice.

    It sounds like it will last throughout the season, with different cases in between.

    Fun fact: The last episode of the Mothership (well, not the one that aired just last Friday, the one before that) had L&O vet John Bedford Lloyd.

    In Ozark, JBL played a character named Frank Cosgrove. So here he is in L&O, playing alongside Jeffrey Donovan...who himself is playing another Frank Cosgrove. :)

    As for OC: They appear to be starting another arc. While the casino arc isn't over yet. Should be interesting...

    Do you mean the Brotherhood one? It's a continuation from last season, only now being revenge against Elliot.

    Oh, this thing with Vaughn and his goons has something to do with the Brotherhood? I admit I did wonder where they got all that NYPD gear...

    But it was clear that the reason Vaughn was doing this was because he (and several of his men) were victims of abuse in the foster home. I didn't see any direct connection to the Brotherhood there. Also I had assumed that every member of the Brotherhood was rounded up in the raid that concluded that arc.

    Although a link to the Brotherhood would explain why the cops in that other NYPD car were shooting at Bell and Stabler.

    I consider it lazy writing that every other cop outside of their unit thinks Stabler is wrong for turning in the Brotherhood.

    Watching SVU sometimes with Stabler around and sometimes without Stabler makes it feel natural, people change work occasionally.

    Is Camilla Belle the worst actor who's ever gotten multiple episodes on any Law & Order show?

    That episode was probably one of the better OC episodes of its run and frankly because Stabler wasn't the centre of attention. Both Whelan and Reyes had their moments, especially the latter and frankly, Reyes was better defined in one episode than Ice-T has been in twenty years. I'm actually engaged to know what is going on with Jet, who seems to be having some kind of PTSD or something.

    It was ok. Reyes part was rather confusing. It seemed like he was abused in part. I feel bad for Jet.
