  • A fun episode!!!

    9.0
    This was a fun episode. My favorite part was watching Chris Meloni not trying to laugh at Kathy Griffin.
  • "He has the hot's for you, you know," "Excuse me?" "Stabler!" "...no... that's uh, never going to happen,"

    9.0
    I really loved this episode! I think Kathy Griffin did a great job making us all hate Babs a little bit. I think the whole 'is Olivia gay thing was a little bit ... for the fans? I don't know, wasn't a fan of that part.



    This episode I didn't really pay attention to the actual crime, and it's a little hard to remember what actually happened, because I was so distracted by Babs and Olivia and oh yeah, my FAVOURITE line of the entire series.



    "He has the hot's for you, you know,"

    "Excuse me?" "Stabler!"

    "...no... that's uh, never going to happen,"



    All in all, I really really enjoyed this episode, there was humour (Chris's big ass,) and it was well acted, and although the actual crime/detective part wasn't in focus, I thought it was a refreshing jump back into SVU after the unbelievably long break.moreless

    I am all for Law and Order: SVU bringing in big name guest stars. I know some people do not like it, but this is not stuntcasting like How I Met Your Mother does, these big names actually bring something to the table. That being said, anything involving Kathy Griffin is just.. yuck.



    But thankfully the good storyline here was able to cover her presence and make this episode not just worth watching, but highly enjoyable. It was refreshing to see a homosexual-driven plot that did not feature a plethora of BD Wong scenes (please fire him Dick Wolf!).



    And I'd love the inside joke about a Benson/Stabler romance with Olivia saying, "It'll never happen." This show doesn't need that garbage to reel viewers in, it just needs entertaining television.moreless
  • Some of the worst acting and stereotyping I've ever seen.

    1.5
    I don't even know where to begin. Even if you try to ignore the grossly offensive stereotyping and just let the story happen, the acting is so horrendous in this episode that you can't believe any of the characters. Plus you're stuck trying to adjust from one scene to the next where one is ridiculously melodramatic and the next comedic. You're getting battered from all sides: bad characters, bad story, bad acting, bad directing, bad bad bad. The only thing that kept me from giving this episode the lowest rating possible was watching Mariska Hargitay toy with the bad guy at the end like a psychopathic cat torturing a mouse.moreless
  • what.the.hell. (spoilers ahead)

    1.0
    As a gay female, I found this episode to be horribly offensive. It's a horrible portrayal of gay women (sure, a few are like the character Kathy Griffin played) and the stereotypes involved are just disgusting. This episode made me laugh out loud at the behaviour of a certain gay character quite a few times - read: Kathy Griffin's character hitting on the officers and the a.d.a.. For me, this episode was just absurd. Maybe you can call me over-sensitive, but for sure, I was deeply offended, and it definitely wasn't because a supposedly gay woman fell for a man.moreless

NBC announced the cancellation of the Jay Leno Show on Sunday, January 9, during the Television Critics Association (TCA) Press Tour. Five days later, on January 14, NBC issued a press release with a revised post-Olympics schedule beginning March 1, including SVU's restoration to its normal Safe Harbor 10 pm time period. However, as a special two-hour event SVU hung onto the 9 pm slot for one more week in order to air this episode.
