Good episode, but it was a bit annoying how they made the new ADA such a jerkoff. She was way over the top. She reminded me of Stephanie March with dark hair. Even the way the talked was similar.

Good, solid episode. I agree that they pushed her annoyance over the top. There's a difference between inexperienced and incompetent.

I liked it too... she seemed like she was being a watch dog... but I like what Arthur (Fred) said to her about watching her and knowing she could handle it and passed the test.

I also started to feel really bad for Olivia and her dating streak: "Either way, it always ends as the last date."

I love this show, but had to miss it today since I was going out. Will they repeat it again this week?

Edit: Ah, guess not.

Interesting episode overall. I was kinda torn on how I felt about the whole individual freedom vs. fetal rights argument which is a good thing. The new lawyer wasn't nearly as annoying this week as she was last week.

I'm beginning to think that this is the best of the L&O incarnations.

I liked how the past few episodes have had really nice endings. This is including the rerun from this past Saturday.

I liked this ep...but I didn't like some of the story. [F'rinstance...when she was in court after violating the Family Court ruling [when Mariska arrested her], why didn't they bring up the past instance of Josie's first F.A.S. birth..? also, was she raped? if so, who raped her? [I could've missed that]]

However, Mariska looked fine as hell. For that matter, so did Josie.

Oh, and I really don't like the new A.D.A. I miss Alex.

I thought this was an excellent episode. Law & Order at its best.

Law and Order SVU 11/11

the ADA is learning, based on her "I didn't hear that" statement
and hearing a law, and not only did they use teh correct law number, but I also know that law. NY Article 35 does in fact list justifications for use of force, both lethal and non-lethal

the son was really animated, but some of the time his facial expressions were the kind you'd see on someone who was screaming, but his force was still fairly soft

This was the first time I've seen an ep with the new ADA. She's another one of the people who have had a minor guest starring role in the earlier season's and comes back as a regular later on.

This ep was pretty good.

Next week should be big with it being the 100th episode.

I really don't like the new ADA yet, but I will give her some more time to grow on me. The best part of the show is the relationship between all of the cops...

Good episode overall. Did anyone else notice how pale the new ADA looked in some of the shots? Get that woman some tanning lotion she was just white!

The son was good but during the final scene with the dad his facial expressions just looked really forced and exaggeraged. Keeping the soft voice kept the performance out of the melodramatic category though.

I can't believe this show is on it's 100th episode already. My how time flies when you have a good show.

I like the new ADA. No, not as much as Alex, but I like her attitude. Diane Neal showed more emotion in her first 30 seconds than Elizabeth Rohm has shown in 2+ seasons of the original.

This was a very good episode.

Did anyone notice how Daphne Zuniga's looks hit the wall? Wholly crap, she's not attractive anymore.

This was a very good episode.
And your Anti-Rohm crusade continues.

This episode was about 100 times better than last week's.

L&O: SVU [11/18]: 100th Epsiode (Control)

Few quick points:

Guest Star was Jacqueline Bisset

Creepy epsiode... creepy, creepy, creepy... castration scares the be-jesus outta me.

Samuel was a trip.

Did not like the ending.

Line of the night:

"It doesn't give you the right to seperate a man from his pecker." -- Fin (Ice-T)

Looks like Elliot is not going to have a good show next week.

I didn't like this episode. I'm getting tired of the double jeporady angle. Seems like it's been done a thousand times.

Yeah, the double jeopardy thing is damn annoying. I'm not a lawyer, but I play one on TV, so help me out: why didn't she get the mistrial?

She brought him the 'offering' and she had on that white coat with the hood. And with the religious-insanity that Sam-I-El had, he thought she was an angel... since in front of his 'home' was the mannequin of the lady in the white dress that was holding the bag.

Does anyone else think the new ADA is terrible? Maybe I am just not used to her yet, but I think she has been a negative for the show. I don't enjoy that part of the episode any longer.
