Like every other American who’s watched enough SVU to fancy herself a law and order expert, I’m obsessed with the Serial podcast. So obsessed that I actually focus when it’s playing in my earholes. Considering I usually have to do 14 things simultaneously to get through … More
Topic: law & order: svu
I met a guy last week at a bar who told me he hadn’t watched TV in several years. On purpose. He had the same look on his face that a toddler does after going to bathroom for the first time on his own. A mixture of pride and self-satisfaction. More
As you may or may not remember, a few months ago Taylor Swift named her new kitten Olivia Benson. Obviously as soon as this news broke I awaited Mariska Hargitay’s response with bated breath. But I never got one. Until now. And boy oh boy was it worth the wait. More
Oh right, they also threw stop and frisk in. Which makes sense to me. Whenever i”m cooking up an episode about racists, I always add a dash of stop and frisk. Also a hint of Mel Gibson’s essence — sold exclusively on Etsy. More
In case you missed last night’s episode, let me run through it for you. If it sounds familiar, it’s because it’s literally ripped from the headlines. So before you ask, no, this wasn’t a rerun. It’s just a condensed version of the Rihanna and Chris Brown anti-love story that we’ve all come to hate. More
Sorry Team Breezy, looks this story won’t be told from your point of view. More
So last night the always topical show dove into the Fifty Shades of Grey mania that’s currently sweeping our country. Or “whipping our country into submission” as someone who’s never read the book but knows a thing or two about looking up BDSM sex on Wikipedia might say. More
Jury Duty’s like watching one long endless commercial right after the opening credits. Except the commercial never ends. And the show never starts and all you’re left with is the image of a dead woman in a dumpster. More
I will choose a Law & Order: SVU marathon over socializing with friends. It’s sad, but so are especially heinous crimes. I can’t pick and choose which one is more tragic.
Rooney Mara‘s gotten a bit big for her britches: Although she got her start on an episode of Law & Order: SVU, she says of her guest role, “It was so awful. So stupid.” More
Last night, Occupy Wall Street called to its members to #mockupy: They took over the Law & Order: SVU film set made to look like Zuccotti Park. Some were upset that NBC was profiting off their story with a “ripped from the headlines” episode; others just wanted to party. More
It may be true that “money can’t buy you class.” But it can get you a stint on Law & Order.
Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, of Real Housewives of New York, guest-starred on last night’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Her character was a society woman with an interest in socializing and the finer things in life, and who has the hots for a younger man. (It must have been a real challenge to get into that character.)
But somehowa, LuAnn isn’t as good at acting like herself as she is on Real Housewives. Even though she looked, sounded, and acted just like her real self. More
