Did anyone else find last night's Law & Order SVU
particularly... I don't know... over the top?
We all know the show is dark. I get that. I'm the farthest thing from a bible thumping, FCC-hugging prude. But why the kitchen sink nuttiness last night? It wasn't even a sweeps episode, by criminy!
Consider, that before the show's halfway point, we were treated to the following: multiple dead elementary school kids, one case of child molestation, and nazis!
And if that wasn't enough, the episode really picked up in the second half, adding Hitler Youth, a skinhead, multiple spewings of the "n" word. Plus, an artful ceiling swastika made of bottlecaps that even Martha Stewart would be proud of. (Not.)
But hope you didn't miss the grand finale: a courtroom shootout where a 16 year old shot said skinhead, a judge, and two officers before an undercover FBI agent blew a hole through his chest the size of a bowling ball.
entertainment. Where could SVU
possibly go from here? I guess we'll find out.
