  • Not been out since they were abducted???

    7.0
    The older girl, when interviewed at the hospital, said that day was the first time they had been out of the house since they were taken, then who plaited her hair?? Surely this is the first thing they would ask, to plait hair like that takes a few hours and she could never have done it that neatly herself, and the younger girl could not have been trained enough to do it either.moreless
  • Three girls are kidnapped after Hurricane Katrina, but the SVU detectives soon understand there is much more to this than just a kidnapping, especially when the girls are then "fed-napped". Possibly best episode of the show this far.moreless

    Olivia Benson and a very brave reporter (with help from our beloved Melinda Warner), do their best to get the truth out there. This episode is one of the best - if not THE best - episode I have ever seen of SVU. Not because it's topic is very SVU-ish, and it could be it affects me more than most people because I've always dreamt of becoming a journalist, to me the truth is the most important thing. And Olivia and the reporter were fighting for it. He even went to jail for it. It shows that the USA after 9/11 might not be so different from the terrorists after all. Because; "There's no freedom without a free press."



    The storyline was very important and very good and I give kudos to the writers for daring to critizise their own government this heavily. It might be a fictional story, but personally I do believe there is truth to it. Olivia said it herself, "the feds are going to make Michael (whatever his last name was) disappear." It's horrifying that this is happening in the world's only current superpower. All in all, I have to say this was an amazing episode!moreless
  • Olivia rocks this episode!!

    Olivia rocks in this episode.This is one episode I didn't even think about her and Elliot.Jackson and Olivia had that special conection.The end made me cry when Jackson left and told Olivia that he wasn't going to give up her name.You could so tell that she was interrested in him and she didnt want to see him go to jail.I haven't seen a show about Katrina and then "BAM" my favorite show comes up with this plot.By far one of the best episodes.Its a...what should I say..."A must see episode"!moreless
  • Law and Order Special Victims Unit!

    7.0
    When a teenager and her two sisters attempt to run away after spending a day in the park, the oldest, Tasha, is hit by a cab. When Detectives Benson and Stabler are called in, they find that the three girls were abducted from New Orleans by an unknown pedophile. The hunt is on to find the middle sister before it is too late. The case is hard enough with the media breathing down the Detective's necks, but takes a turn for the worse when the Feds step in.



    This was an ok episode. The storyline was mildly interesting, but in the end it seemed like it was just another filler episode. It was interesting to see that the case started because of Hurricane Katrina, but I think that there were too many main plot points and it made the story line harder to follow.moreless
  • Olivia v. the world

    9.2
    An odd episode of SVU, which seemed more like 24 or something at times. Of course, this isn't the first time that SVU have found themselves up against the big bad Feds, but all the Anthrax and politics and secrets for "national security" was a bigger picture than SVU episodes generally encompass.



    Great episode for Olivia, she really showed that she could be a hero and was willing to sacrifice herself to do what she thought was right and in the best interests of the public and those three girls. It was good to see that Elliot was, eventually, willing to go along with her in taping the scientist's confession. I also liked Warner's involvement in this episode, particularly when she was giving Olivia information.



    The ending was a little unsettling- I thought you Americans had free speech? Everything is qualified, I guess, when the government says so. I don't know how long the journalist is going to keep his silence on Olivia being his source- maybe he's tough enough, maybe not. This could be something they come back to in a later episode, but of course we don't want to see Olivia switching places with him in jail.



    Mariska was excellent leading this episode, but I would've liked to see a little more Munch (since he is the one always going on about conspiracies, it's hard to believe that he'd keep so quiet when one actually presents itself). Huang losing his cool was an interesting idea, I'd like to see more of that in the future.moreless
