In the criminal justice system, sexually based offenses are considered especially heinous. In New York City, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as the Special Victims Unit. These are their stories.
The gavel drops, and I am enraptured for another hour.
Yes, I may watch a bit too much tv.
That being said, I thoroughly enjoy SVU. Especially when USA runs a marathon and I get to catch up on all kinds of episodes.
This show is able to do something completely unique and unimaginable. It presents some of the world's most terrible criminals and crimes-- pedophiles, rape, murder, serial killers, kidnapping, etc. The things they talk about and show make me cringe and feel terrible. However, trusty Stabler and Benson are somehow able to solve all of these cases within an hour, and the world is a safe place once again.
I love all of the supporting characters too. B.D. Wong is so smart and insightful. I'm pretty sure he's a psychiatrist in real life too. I'd like to run into him in NYC. Munch and Tutuola add an extra somethin' somethin', and Dr. Melinda Turner is my hero.
I'd really enjoy a guest starring role... especially one where I got to talk to Elliot and be analyzed by B.D. I would settle for an examination from Turner and an interview with Olivia :). Who am I kidding, I would lay in a chalk outline to be on that show.
Now back to my marathon...
Thank you, Law and Order: SVU, you made my day.
