Because I’m about to go out of town, I went through my TiVo To-Do List and asked myself, “Okay, what of this should I delete?” I started by eliminating episodes of shows I’d already seen but hadn’t seen in the last 28 days.

After I finished, I realized that I’d deleted every single upcoming episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

I promise you that I’m not obsessed. Okay, so I am. I love playing the SVU “Guess Who’s Going to Be Righteously Pissed Off!?” Game: watch the first five minutes of an ep of SVU and decide who’s going to get the most outrageously angry during the hour. Will it be:

  • Elliott?
  • Olivia?
  • Munch?
  • Tutuola?
  • Cragen?
  • Cabot?
  • Novak?

Sad thing is, I can tell from just watching the pre-opening credits scroll most of the time.

On the Top Five list of Detectives I’d Never Want to See Across the Table from Me in a Interview Room, Stabler and Tutuola are #1 and #1A. One of these days, some black, up-from-the-streets pedophile is going to piss Tutuola off, and just as you’re expecting Ice T to whup him good, Stabler’s going to come in like some sick tag-team clothesline and beat the guy’s head into the table until he passes out.

You just know this.

[Am I the only one that finds it amusing that Ice T is now playing a cop?]


  1. Alex, I’ll certainly agree that I liked Cabot a lot better than Novak. Diane Neal has the same far-too-serene demeanor that Angie Harmon brought to Law & Order: you just want to whack her and say, “Hey, you show a little emotion.”

    Now, frankly, you can say the same thing about Elisabeth Rรตhm on L&O, but since I have a crush on her, well … ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Stephanie March played the unflappable DA, but when she was unhappy, by God, you knew it! That’s what I want to see—a clear personality—in a minor character.

  2. I miss Homicide…I think that’s what it was called. It took place in Baltimore, and sometimes Munch or others from L&W would come visit. The show had a very cool vibe, and some great music video like moments.
