  • I'm extremely mixed about this episode. On one hand, Mischa Barton did a fantastic job ...

    I'm extremely mixed about this episode. On one hand, Mischa Barton did a fantastic job ... I don't think she's a terrific actress, but I loved her in this. She fit the role perfectly. And on the other, SVU and it's religiousness is getting a bit much. It's always sort of focussed on Catholicism, Elliot being Catholic is mentioned like 10 times every season .. yawn ...



    Also, that weird prayer scene in the interview actually made me laugh, and I had to change the channel because I was embarrassed to watch it. That was like an inside joke with people on the show, I guess since it was Tergesen (spelling?) Chris's love interest from Oz. But it was a HUGE strike against this episode. It was just awful.



    The crime&detective part was a bit lacking, again, but I do like it when the focus on the characters. I thought it was interesting how Olivia is left with the baby, which she's always wanted. I don't really think they'll do much with this, they don't usually connect episodes together - as in, you could pull any few out, and it wouldn't make a whole lot of difference in the characters lives - but it could be interesting to see what happens with the baby.moreless

    this show is more and more crap. this show was a waist of victims unit and a sign of our social morel decay. this show is about messed up people that need serious help and i guess they kept the theme because there guest star who commonly portrays annoying people you could couldn't care less to listen to. she has another roll just like that and i couldn't care less what her character had to say. they blur the line from a the victims to now its about lesbians and then the episode tanked. it got lost in politics and that's what this show is getting lost in.moreless
  • The first part was mediocre but the second part was stellar.

    I was wrong when I said Kathy Griffin would be a better guest star than Mischa Barton, whoa was I wrong. The first part was mediocre, lame, and annoying because of Kathy Griffin. I really couldn't bare to watch the rest. Though I must give it some points for being unpredictable the twists were duds. The second part with Mischa Barton was better than I expected she was excellent in the episode. The episode overall was a little better than the first one but Mischa Barton I believe held her own. Law & Order SVU now bases its episodes on its guest starts which shows how far down the show has gone. I loved the past seasons of Law & Order but this and the previous season are complete let downs. Every show gets worse when it gets older though.moreless

    Oh man, I am glad Law and Order: Special Victims Unit is back, and they gave us two fresh episodes, nonetheless, but these two guest stars were like a who's who of people I hate. First Kathy Griffin, now Mischa Barton. It is a shame because this was another really good episode of SVU, but the former TBL and OC star's brutal acting really brought things down. 11 years and SVU is still awesome though. That is quite an accomplishment. Olivia with a kid? Will they continue this or just forget about it next week? Certainly having some season long story arcs couldn't hurt the show.moreless

    • The costume department had to modify the earrings they had provided for Mischa Barton when they found out that she was unable to wear them. This was because Mischa had only recently had her ears pierced, and had been told she couldn't wear earrings on thin wire hooks for several months afterwards as they could damage the holes in her earlobes. As the earrings the costume department had provided were on that type of wire hook, Mischa had to tell them that she couldn't wear them. So the costume department had the earrings remounted on "post and butterfly" studs that Mischa was able to wear.

    • This episode marked the program's return to the 10 pm time period, although it remained on its new night, Wednesday.
