    Really? Benson yanked Stabler out of the interrogation room the minute he started to toe the border of acceptable conduct, and even pulled rank on him when it was clear he wasn't going to listen.

    Can you get an indoor antenna like a Mohu Leaf, put it against one of your highest windows and run the wire down to the basement?

    I've often wondered who it would be worse to be interrogated by...Stabler, or Hank Voight.

    My money's on Voight. :eek:

    Yeah, when it actually stuck to its premise (that we would get to see the crime actually being committed, from the POV of the bad guys).

    That lasted, what, three episodes? :lol:

    I have barely watched SVU in the last 10 years, a combination of becoming more enjoying lighter drama shows like White Collar & Leverage versus the Ripped from the headlines, at least 2 people die gruesomely television. Plus for me in the couple of seasons leading up to Meloni leaving SVU, they had made the show too much about Stabler and Benson, with it too much of Munch, Fin, Warner & Huang in the background, rarely having their own stories. SVU was always an ensemble show for me.

    I really enjoyed the April 1st event of SVU/OC. There's a lot they did right, the biggest for me was that they didn't wait to get Stabler back on screen. Right there, in the first scene, he's back. So many times a show brings back a beloved character and they don't show them until about halfway through the show. Cabot in "Ghost" for example. They got right into it and I'm glad they did.

    I am concerned that they're going to make us wait a long time for anything more than a brief scene with Benson and Stabler to work out their problems. I do hope that they reschedule her award and bring back other actors and have a nice reunion for it. After the last year, that would be a good happy thing to do for the fans.

    I too enjoyed the episode, but it only made me more interested in the organised crime show than svu

    Trivia... the difference in age between Dylan McDermott and Chazz Palminteri is 9 years.

    But the fact that she even let him into the room shows a huge error in judgment. We also get a handful of tortured Benson scenes and this whole mystery about what he wrote on the note. We had the requisite scene with the chief where he has to tell her to not let Stabler run wild. I am not the biggest fan of the characterization of Benson, the holier than thou detective who always has it right, but they dumped all that in a heartbeat.

    For me, the most aggravating part of SVU has been this will they, won't they relationship. The powers that be have already pushed it past the point of old partners that will do anything for each other. They've been doing it again with Rollins & Carisi, albeit slightly better.

    I knew it would be part of a jumping off point for the Organized Crime series, but it was frustrating.

    I've only seen the first ep, but Organized Crime looks to be WAY better than SVU.

    So should it have its own thread? ;)

    Oh, I really hope they don't.

    Not only, as I said, would Stabler and Benson have NO chemistry as lovers, but if they became such...so soon after Kathy's death...that'd be cold. :(

    Considering this thread has generated all of nine pages after a few years and the conversation tends to revolve around the same three or four topics ... no. No, it should not.

    Years ago, I would have loved it. Now I think Elliot deserves better. Olivia gets on my nerves. The whole Saint Olivia can do no wrong thing, makes me want to scream. :D

    If they got together, I wouldn't really care either way. *shrug* They dragged things out for too long.

    I'm trying to get a handle on all the players in Organized Crime. There's a lot of detectives and what's going on with Wheatley and his ex-wife, it's a lot going so far.

    I'm glad that SVU hinted this week that Carisi has finally put down his torch for Rollins. It was becoming another tiresome will they or won't they and I hope they don't flip it and have her pine for him now.

    Now correct me if I'm wrong, but...all those mobsters jockeying to take over after Manfredi's death, they don't know that Wheatley is his son, amirite?

    And I don't think I've ever gone HELL YEAH! at a L&O scene more than that bit where all those spoiled rich women in the doctor's office were arrested for jumping the vaccine line. :techman:

    I admit I was a bit flummoxed by one thing, though:

    In that scene where the covid vaccine truck is hijacked, the driver is shot and left on the train tracks. Later we learn that not only did somebody come along and tend to the guy's wounds...IT WAS THE SHOOTER WHO DID THAT??? Why would they do a thing like that? I mean, they SHOT the driver, I can only assume their intention was to kill him...so why bind his wounds?
