I've mentioned before that Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is going down the crapper. I'm more convinced than ever, because my primary emotion when Stabler was tossed off the roof was boredom. Even Olivia is annoying me. Munch, however, is still interesting and lovable.

ETA: Still watching. Stabler is now in the bad guy's former cell, in solitary confinement. Which is sort of a neat idea, to verify for himself whether being alone in solitary is as bad as the guy who tossed him off the roof said it was, but come on now. He's a married man with children, how on earth would he have time to experiment? Secondly, we can't tell how long he's been alone but it seems a really long time and Stabler's obviously going stir-crazy. When his buddy comes to let him out, we learn he's been in solitary for three days. I figure Stabler would have gone into this experiment as sleep-deprived as most parents with young children are and would have slept away those three days. Three days does not seem nearly long enough to drive an otherwise sane person nuts, particularly when that person knows he'll be let out in just three days.

Best part of the episode? The two scenes with Detective John Munch.

LOL. Boredom, huh? Wow, that's bad. Munch and his partner, the rapper Ice-T, have always been the most interesting characters for me. Still, Elliot didn't use to be that bad!

Well. I didn't hate this ep nearly as much as I have every other one I've seen lately. For a few reasons, Stephen Rea being one. He's a really good actor, and I really felt for his character. I like the friction between Elliot and the new DA a lot, especially in this ep. And last, OMG, the Oz memories this brought back! From the sudden, Keller-like smile Elliot gave the DA while they were arguing, to him being in solitary - - I want to break out my Oz dvds. I've started to watch SVU with the same attitude as the last few seasons of XF - - not looking for logic or especially good writing.

I taped this, and will get around to watching it, maybe tonight, just because everyone was saying it was good. I don't hold out much hope, however.

(also, an appropriate time to use one of my new icons, LOL)

I haven't watched L&O in any of its manifestations for years, but I do know who the characters are of whom you speak. I think characters can become annoying after many years, unless they grow in some way. But L&O is so formulaic that perhaps that isn't possible? As I say, I stopped watching a long time ago, so I really shouldn't comment here, but I never let ignorance stop me from saying what I think. :-)))
