  • Robin WIlliams guest stars.

    Robin WIlliams always impresses me when he is in a dramatic role. In the movies it was "Fisher King". On TV, previously it was on an episode of Homicide Life on the Street entitled "Bop Gun". Here he's a manipulative character who Elliot, Liv and Munch track down. He accuses many of being sheep, yet he shows how with some public demonstrations how much they will follow him too. Even better is his courtroom presence as he represents himself. Our beloved ADA sums it up wondering out loud how good he would be if he had a law degree. I won't go into detail but I wouldn't be surprised if he came back again in a recurring role.

    There was a little action in this episode but it followed one of the standard formulas. I continue to be impressed by Law and Order SVU. I have to say while Law and Order can get stale at times after however many years, Law and Order SVU has not. This episode was indicative of this.
