  • Ripped from the headlines OK; Ripped from 17 Different Headlines Bad

    Man, what has happened to this show? They used to occasionally have an episode that was "ripped from the headlines" -- they'd take a real life case but apply an interesting twist to it.

    But this? This was ripped from about 17 different headlines, bouncing from topic to topic so fast I was getting whiplash. One minute, it's pregnancy pacts. Then it's cyber-bullying. All punctuated with lots of "acting" that consists of shouting. Zero interest in staying with a particular character before ZOOM it's off to the next headline stealing.

    And as for the final resolution? **spoiler warning** I'll just say that SVU must have the most incompetent medical examiner on the planet. There is a huge difference in the post-mortem signs of someone who hung themselves and someone strangled to death with bare hands. Just pure laziness from the writers.

    This show used to be good.
